Blinking screen

Hello, I run XFCE (with default compositor) and use nvidia driver.

I installed drivers using

 sudo pacman -S nvidia nvidia-utils nvidia-settings xorg-server-devel opencl-nvidia 

Output of lsmod | grep nvidia is:

nvidia_drm 53248 0

nvidia_modeset 1118208 1 nvidia_drm

nvidia 20471808 4 nvidia_modeset

drm_kms_helper 237568 2 nvidia_drm,i915

ipmi_msghandler 73728 2 ipmi_devintf,nvidia

drm 557056 11 drm_kms_helper,nvidia_drm,i915

Unfortunately, my screen blinks white from time to time - usually when launching Chrome. Can I somehow check, what could be wrong?

 journalctl -xe 

does not report any related errors or problems.

Re: Blinking screen

sudo journalctl -b

journalctl will by default only print the session journal unless your user is in the %whell and some other special group, if there're errors, they'll rather be reflected in dmesg/the system journal.
("-x" only adds useless clutter)

Also post your xorg log.
