I'm installing 9.04 on an HTPC, so I will often VNC in to work on it from my laptop.
After the initial install, I updated everything, and it all went fine. I was able to VNC using Ubuntu's built-in "Remote Desktop" with no problems.
I then installed the 180.xx restricted nvidia drivers and rebooted. Everything worked fine on my TV, but when I VNC'd into it, all I could see was the background and title bar. When I'd pull down a menu, the menu was visible on the TV but not over the VNC link.
I assume that means the GUI was now using some sort of overlay for the menus, which is fine, but what's the best way to make them visible over VNC?
Clarification: I know I can turn off all visual effects and solve the problem, but I'm looking for a way to see the menus over VNC while keeping the GUI pretty...
