Just using the regular KDE shutdown/reboot/logout buttons, while it’s counting down my monitor goes crazy. Almost looks like the GPU is dying, with constant flickering of random colors, and glitching desktop icons stretching and jumping around. Note: The actual username, ok/cancel buttons are unaffected, and it’s only happening in the background.
The thing is, this only happens during shutdown/reboot/logout, and literally at no other time. I can play games, use the computer normally, all with zero graphical bugs, but KDE’s shutdown/reboot/logout causes it to go nuts. I have multiple monitors, and the glitching is produced on all monitors, so it’s not limited to one.
This never used to happen, but I recall it starting maybe a month or two ago after I removed some packages labeled “orphan”.
If you look in the main repo, you can see
antergos-kde-setupis still at version
1.0.3, but the pull request that closed that issue fixes it in version
The main repo just needs a fixed package to be built, as you can see that the last time it was built was in 2017-10-08
Issues began after updating about 2 days ago. Weirdly enough there weren’t KDE updates that day, but just some random ones I can’t remember anymore. Maybe 3-5 total updates - some python and lib pkg’s I think?
Anyways, now at startup
baloo_file_extractorare both taking up a lot of CPU, noticably slowing the system down. I just kill
baloo_file_extractorand then I run
killall plasmashell; kstart plasmashell; exitto band-aid fix the cpu usage of
Problem is, I have to run that killall line every time I search for anything. So any time I hit my super key and type for something to search, I hear my cpu fan rev up and
plasmashellstarts eating anywhere from 10-35% CPU till I killall again.
I’ve disabled file indexing in system settings, but
baloo_file_extractorstill runs on startup. Although it doesn’t run again after I kill it at startup, so I guess that’s a silver lining…
When I go to change my email it tells me my password is incorrect every time I try. I use a password manager so I know it’s correct, but I even tried typing it out (thinking that pasting was somehow bugged) but I get the same result.
How can I change my email?
@joekamprad So I uncommented the
#display-setup-script=and changed it to
display-setup-script=xrandr --output DP-3 --primary.
After doing that, I rebooted but the login screen never appeared. Instead, all three monitors were what looked like terminals with the cursor blinking.
Would’ve responded quicker but after that happened I had to figure out how to mount the encrytped drive on my live usb & edit the file back to how it was.
I’m guessing the
--ouput DP-3isn’t correct, but I’m not sure what else to put there. When I run
xrandr --listmonitorsit gives me this…
