What exactly do you need? Ubuntu 8.10 on FJS Amilo Xi2428 with Nvidia 
8600M (i think) and the closed src Nvidia driver.

Anyway, as far as I remember Merkaartor ran without any issue on an 
Ubuntu 8.10 desktop with Nvidia 9xxx and again the closed src Nvidia driver.

It seems to be the nvidia bug.

This did not change anything (except Merkaartor went back to default 

Just one question: do you always use Webkit as a renderer, or do you use 
it only to get the aerial photos?

Anyway, thanks for trying to help me.
