    Xubuntu32 14.04

I installed Xubuntu32 14.04 on 2014-06-12.  I noticed this problem
almost immediately.  The screen contents belonging to other
applications is NOT in the emacs buffer that is saved to disk, but it
is displayed. This makes emacs unusable for me.

I have spent several hours over these past weeks Googling for anyone
reporting a similar problem, but I have found no relevant information.
This probably means that my problem is not a widespread problem with
the Ubuntu release.

Who is supposed to clear the "display buffers"?  Linux or Emacs?

I will appreciate any help.

I am running xubuntu and I am not getting that problem.
This is what I have in my .emacs
;; Switch off start up message to have scatch buffer
(setq inhibit-startup-message t)
;; Nothing in scratch buffer
(setq initial-scratch-message nil)

There may be better ways of achieving this but I have only recently
started to use emacs.


Thanks for the suggestion.  I already had

(setq inhibit-startup-message t)

I added:

(setq initial-scratch-message nil)

This had no effect.

Other ideas?  Anyone?
