The closest thing to this problem I can find is Fuzzy static noise on screen, but that is not the same problem I am having.

I'm running Ubuntu 15.04 on an Asus G750JW laptop. I have installed the latest NVIDIA drivers from their website (346.59). Graphics acceleration is working perfectly.

Black or dark colors on the screen are 'noisey'. It looks something like this, but darker.

Edit: Forgot to mention this does not happen on Windows.

It's not extremely annoying, but I would like to get it fixed. My graphics card is a Nvidia 765M. Any ideas?


Same here. After playing a little with Dithering options the noise is gone! Thanks to Maiwand for the clue! )

  • @ByteCommander This is the only answer, so it can't be a thank you answer.. – Seth Feb 19 '16 at 15:58
  • @Seth Actually it is a thanks answer thanking for the solution in the comments... That question was long solved, but nobody bothered to write an answer with the correct solution. Yes, I missed that due to the review queue's focus. But I am still not too sure what should happen with this? – Byte Commander Feb 21 '16 at 11:25
  • @byte nothing needs to happen. But upvoting it would mark the question solved. – Seth Feb 21 '16 at 14:55
