• Video problem in XFCE


    I have the XFCE desktop and the video i play on KODI has problems. They have some flickering or trembling. I dont know if i am using the right word.

  • @andreasdimo79
    I think it is often called as “screen tearing”. And it is caused by the graphics system, maybe inadequate power on graphics hardware, or slightly non-optimal graphics configuration.

    I’m no expert on this, but I believe some experts here can help you further.
    Anyway, could you show some info about your machine, especially the graphics hardware? Please show the output of commands

    lspci
    pacman -Qs xf86-video
    pacman -Qs nvidia
    

    Please report issues including all details! ;-)

  • @andreasdimo79 as @manuel say will need info about video hardware first to link you in the right direction…

    So, Mr. Graphics Expert, how to fix or mitigate flickering problems on Intel integrated graphics? 🙂

    I found this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Intel_graphics#Screen_flickering
    but don’t know if it helps…

    and show the URL.

  • sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
    copy paste this:
    
    Section "Device"
      Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
      Driver      "intel"
      Option      "TearFree" "true"
    EndSection
    

    save the file with [Ctrl+X]

    Can help, but may also removing the xf86 driver package can result in better performance…

  • Thank you guys for your help.

  • @joekamprad
    Do you mean removing xf86-video-intel? I’m also testing this here. 🙂

    I found this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Intel_graphics#Screen_flickering

    I tried here kernel parameter “i915.enable_psr=0”, and with it I cannot boot…

  • @manuel said in Video problem in XFCE:

    removing xf86-video-intel

    exactly, as other distros do recommend:

    Note: Some (Debian & Ubuntu, Fedora, KDE) recommend not installing the xf86-video-intel driver, and instead falling back on the modesetting driver for fourth generation and newer GPUs. See Xorg-Installation, and modesetting. However, the modesetting driver can cause problems such as Chromium.
    Also, the modesetting driver will not be benefited by Intel GuC/HuC/DMC firmware.

    Ah, I have a very old machine here, so it may not help. But I’ll try anyway!
    So if you don’t see me for a few days, this is the reason… 😉

  • Well, as I thought, it didn’t boot anymore after removing xf86-video-intel.
    But as my machine is quite old (about 8 years!), it is not much of a surprise.

    But I could use Ctrl-Alt-F2 to get into a terminal, and reinstall the missing file, problem solved.

    I also tried that 20-intel.conf file, and it works OK. Probably the tearing is much less now, but TBH I haven’t much noticed it even before. 🙂
