RE: Graphics Problems with gnome-shell-3.10.3

I've compiled gnome-3.10.x from source to run on a machine with an intel core-i7 2640m 2.8GHz cpu with 
8GB RAM and intel hd3000 graphics on 64bit tinycorelinux using a 3.8.13 kernel.

Using gnome-session/gnome-shell, most things seem to work, but the graphics display is very poor.

The display background continually turns bright white and dragging any window produces a trail of 
multiple windows behind it. The only way to fix this seems to use the mac/special/windows key to move to 
the "task-switcher" screen and back again.

Setting CLUTTER_PAINT="disable-clipped-redraws:disable-culling" does not seem to help appreciably.

Are the above problems caused by the graphics not being powerful enough or is it a software problem?

If it is a software problem, are there any patches available to fix this without moving to gnome-3.12.x? 
The software in use is listed below.


It's an issue with the background and can be fixed by setting your background to a constant color. You can 
also apply the four patches in this bug, but I'm not sure if it will cleanly apply on top of 3.10.x:

Thanks for the suggestions.

I don't think this is an issue with the background - if I chose a plain colour from gnome-backgrounds, it 
does not improve things - or perhaps I misunderstood?

Most of the four patches do not apply cleanly so as an alternative I took "backgrounds.js" from 
gnome-shell-3.13.1, but this did not improve things either...
