Its not related to freeciv anymore.
Making update in gentoo fixes it.
Linux Mint 15 works ok also, ubuntu 13.04 too,
openSuse 13 was affected, but haven't checked lately

In gentoo unstable branch seems ok too now.
I updateted totally about 50 packages.
These are most suspicious:


Probably one of them fixed it, but I have no time to check which one.
I havent upgraded nvidia-drivers.

Surely they are the same bug.
As I told in first post, it only happens with in the Linux Mint 14 partition (I use default installation for all settings of Linux Mint 14 Mate).
I don't get that weird graphics with Ubuntu 12.04, and never got them in many previous versions of Mint or Ubuntu.

Hmm, bug #20739 looks very similar to this.

There, it started when Michal switched to the proprietary Nvidia graphics driver. Are you by any chance using that?

Tks, Marko.
I'm an experienced user, this time with Mint I did just the same as I have always done before so many times (with previous versions of Mint and Ubuntu): I always download fresh .tar.gz and configure and make it by myself, always with same compiling options.
But this is the first time I am having this type of problem.
I tried to rename grid.png, here's output:

Unable to find client executable: freeciv
Searching for freeciv clients ...
... using ./client/freeciv-gtk2
Running ./client/freeciv-gtk2
1: Could not load gfx file "trident/grid".
0: Could not load gfx file for the spec file "data/trident/grid.spec".

BTW, with every layer turn off, except map grid, map grid is colored and shifted too.

So it is the city outline.

- Could you test disabling everything but city outlines from View menu to see that it's drawing of the outlines themselves and not some bad interaction from other layers?

- Is it possible that you're picking another trident tileset installation earlier in search path instead of the one you assume you're using? Does it refuse to launch if you rename that grid.png as grid.backup? (or does it happily pick up some wrong one)

Hi. I've md5sum'ed it, I got same result as yours. Tks.
I attached a new picture, this time with City borders only.

I don't think so. See how consistently follows national borders (similar national borders for the tile result in similar corruption). Citymap borders should be quite different.

That looks to me like it's the citymap borders (solid line, "View > City Outlines") rather than the national borders (dashed line) that have gone wrong.

Could it be corrupted gfx file?

I installed (= compiled source) Freeciv 2.3.3 in Linux Mint 14 Mate Edition.
I am getting weird national borders now. See picture attached.
