Well, it’s past 7:30PM and I have rebooted as well and the screen if fine so far.
What I did was use xbacklight -inc 20 until the screen was what I thought it should be.
Now, crystal clear, really sharp. Sure hope it stays this way cause this is one great screen.
No nothing else is started. I had thought that maybe using xflux, from commandline, would do something, but alas, nothing different.
I think it is a h/w problem but be darned if I know what as I said, it will be fine in the morning. Just that at about 7:30pm the screen gets grainy.
I have looked thru the BIOS and there iis nothing there to modify in the way of display brightness/contrast.
Thanks so much for your reply as any help now is deeply appreciated.
I have what I think is a rather strange problem; when I first use the system in the morning the screen is crystal clear. Text on reddit and any other site is very easy to read, great contrast, BUT around about 7:00PM my display starts to turn to s**t but then when I leave for the night the next morning the screen is great again.
Gets all grainy and text on some sites is incredibly hard to read.
I have tried running without xf86-video-intel using modesetting instead, no change, I disabled the DM, sddm in my case, and use startx, no change. I have rebooted so many times it’s ridiculous, thinking that might be the problem; long usage.
My computer is 9years old, or there abouts, Toshiba L355 S7902 and runs great.
My system is totally up to date, as I run pacman or pacaur -Syu more than 2-3x;s a day.
I tried install xflux but that didn’t help at all, in fact, to me, it made it worse.
I have run out of ideas, do any of you guys/gals have an idea?
Thanks in advance for any help.
I have recently run into this problem upon logging in:
No process for pid #####
I have tried reinstalling lxsession and lxsession-gtk3 to no avail.
I have been searching for days now and no resolution.
One guy in Arch said he had the problem but went away as he thought it was an upgrade to systemd that fixed.
I reinstalled systemd to no avail.
My system is otherwise completely fine and up to date; as I do a pacman -Syu more than 2 or 3 x’s a day.
Anyone have any ideas?
I use Xfce and love it. They have been adding more and more GTK3 ports over.
Terminal, Notifications, Power Manager, to name 3.
Thunar, I would assume they have fixed the bug with large copies, I copied over 6gb without an issue. I have a customized Vertex theme called Vertex Dust that it lite, but not too lite.
My whole desktop looks very up to date, nothing like the default Xfce, ew…
Whisker Menu plus a few keyboard shortcuts and I’m good to go.
I’ve customized SDDM to have so many different screens if I so desire; around 11 I think, went a bit nuts I know…
The Arch wiki to the rescue?
