Screen Flickering when closing windows

Post by yoyoseby97 »

I have this setup, with the 2nd monitor being full of small skins (every meter is a skin) and a black 1920x1080 shape behind all of them just so it darkens the entire screen making it look like it's actually one entire skin loaded. Everytime I press my mouse "show-desktop" macro all the skins flicker for a bit...that wouldn't be such a big problem, the real problem is that they flicker 50% of the times I close windows...like my computer or internet browser or any window at all. If someone else has dealt with this before please be so kind as to guide me in this.

PS: I have unloaded the black screen behind thinking it was a loading-skin-over-skin problems as all the other skins don't "touch" each other, but it still does that.

PS2: It actually does this even with one single skin loaded.

Coult it be related to the settings as the order of how skins load?? Or where they are positioned..I dunno

are your skins flickering or other screens..try to unload some and see if it's still flicking...
see if you can find the skin that causing the flickering... my guess is to many skins or to many shapes meter..

do you use shapes as background in that skin? i had that to with some skins ... replaced it with image meter...
but here if they could not replicate the issue ... it's no issue :D ....so be happy you don't have the same no issue like mine ...

Dude, I already said, I disabled the rectangle in the background and it still does this....I unload everything and leave just one small meter on...and that one small meter flickers..all by himself
