What version of driver and modules have gNewSense and Trisquel? knowing
this is good.

I had a problem with my Intel video driver, I just switched some options
in my Xorg conf and then things worked well, here is my conf:

Section "Device"
	Identifier "Intel Graphics"
	Driver "intel"
	#Option "AccelMethod" "sna" #<--- This acceleration method was
	                            # making my graphics look funny from
	                            # time to time. 
	Option "AccelMethod" "uxa"  # <-- Then I switched.
	#Option "AccelMethod" "glamor"

Hope this help you with your problem!
