Default Maya : MMB-Drag freezes

I can't say for sure this is an nvidia-related issue, but I only have it on machines with nvidia cards and not on ones with the same software configuration. Autodesk forums suggested driver issues, so I te hought I'd ask here too.

here's the issue:

when I MMB-Drag a material from hypershade to a model, Maya freezes when I release the button; mouse still moves but the apps is frozen with that silly little irix running guy icon. Alt-Tab to another window and back unfreezes, the material is applied, and all is well; but it's bizarre and frustrating.

hw: athlon x2, quadro fx 1400
sw: ubuntu feisty 32 bit, most recent drivers, maya 8.5. composite is disabled and CIOverlay is on.

I imagine there are a lot of you using maya happily with similar setups, otherwise there'd be more people complaining ... any suggestions? i'll be really grateful since i'm supposed to teach a class of beginning maya students in this lab tomorrow morning ... and the hypershade part of the lecture's not gonna go so well

I believe this is a known problem that should be fixed in a future graphics driver release.

Thumbs up Re: Maya : MMB-Drag freezes (Solved)

Hi,

I hope you have resolved this by now, if not here is the solution.

This is not an Nvidia based problem it is a program conflict. If you are using KDE close "klipper" BEFORE starting up Maya. If you use Maya more than klipper select "Do not start" option when you close it.

If you use Gnome close the equivalent clipboard monitoring software.

Hope that helps.

There was a bug in the driver that exactly matched skullmunky's description that should be fixed in 100.14.19.

I love you Nvidia. 100.14.19 fixed it. OnTarget600 is correct, the same bug does manifest with Klipper; but this time around it also was due to the drivers even without Klipper. I'm still mystified about what weird thing Maya is doing with Motif widget/window/interface focus that's so - I don't know - fragile ...

anyway, thanks!
