Webrowser OPENS but does not REGISTER when clicking tabs[Solved]

I have iwd and chrony installed on this archlinux build. After numerous attempts to get plymouth and lightdm to work together, I log into my machine with the time completely out of sync and the webrowser I am using doesn't work. I have systemd-resolved.service and systemd-homed.service enabled which I will later on address. What I mean by that is that it will open, but if I click on tabs, they don't open "visually". If I click on the URL and type in the box it won't register anything "visually". When I close the browser it warns me about closing those tabs. it can "run" commands I input in the terminal no problem, can ping no problem, and build packages no problem.

I added the files manually from this repo in the hopes to solve my errors: https://github.com/GalliumOS/galliumos-braswell

These are my specs for the laptop if needed: https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/ch … c13-k01us/

And I looked into configuring my hardware acceleration using this here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Intel_ … n_GMA_4500
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Hardwa … celeration In the hopes to solve my issues and it didn't
NOTE: I am posting all the files I messed with recently, regardless if they will help my problem

Here is my xorg.conf.d configure file:
http://ix.io/3JCx

Here's the config file I typed manually Opengl:
http://ix.io/3JCv

Here's my config file I typed manually Vertical Synchronization (VSYNC):
http://ix.io.3JCw

Here's my iwd config:
http://ix.io/3JCy

Here's my grub config:
http://ix.io/3JCA

Here is my mkinitcpio.conf file:
http://ix.io/3JCB

Here is my ccache config file:
http://ix.io/3JCC


NOTE: I do have problems with zswap and I am sticking with it regardless using zram. It doesn't umount when rebooting. I will address this topic more AFTER I get my browser to work.


NOTE: Below this line implies I can browse no problem and time-zone was fine. This is true BEFORE I tweaked my iwd conf file,(it didn't have "NameResolvingService=systemd" in it, and enabled systemd-resolved.service + systemd-homed.service. Everything I stated above this line is what I did that cause the problems I have now: I don't know how to diagnose them properly, which is why I am here. I want to make this clear that I was able to connect and browse with hiccups no problem and now I can't after these tweaks.

Time was completely fine before I setup systemd-resolved.service and systemd-homed.service,(I have this up because I do want to ssh later on), but the browser lagged severely when connecting to github.com. Basically any sites it hasn't connect before it will take a while to connect to it. But once it is connect, it will connect no problem to whichever site I wanted to visit.

I have all the packages installed:
http://ix.io/3JCG

Once again, I need help diagnosing my web browsing FIRST, then the other issue I have.

EDIT: I am using palemoon and I am thinking on about using the tools on it if I can that is to debug it. To find out why it is doing what I said before

Re: Webrowser OPENS but does not REGISTER when clicking tabs[Solved]

I suggest you undo your xorg and dri configurations and remove

xf86-video-fbdev 0.5.0-3
xf86-video-intel 1:2.99.917+916+g31486f40-2 <= especially this one
xf86-video-vesa 2.5.0-2

http://ix.io/3jcw/ is just some binary data?

Re: Webrowser OPENS but does not REGISTER when clicking tabs[Solved]

I don't know why you're getting binary data? I will upload the link again. And I never thought about how many video drivers I installed, I was always fixated on the code I write. Saying this to keep this as a reminder for myself FYI. Removed the specified packages, un-commented lines from xorg file. I removed the ~/.drirc cause it isn't needed. Fixed my code from /etc/drirc and now it hangs on "Starting version 250-1-arch". It says that and my lightdm-plymouth is suppose to load in which allows me to login. Any suggestions?

Re: Webrowser OPENS but does not REGISTER when clicking tabs[Solved]

There's probably a lingering config, referencing the intel driver?

grep -ri intel /{etc,usr/share}/X11/xorg.conf*

I have a backup of my file in Xorg-Backup. Just removed it and Here's the output of the requested command: http://ix.io/3JI7
And it is still hanging.

Yeah, obviously remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf …

Re: Webrowser OPENS but does not REGISTER when clicking tabs[Solved]

You don't need it? I thought you do in order for the display manager to load up? How can I learn more about setting up my drivers with xorg? Tried googling it and it's vague as I lack the fundamentals what I am looking for... But palemoon still takes forever to load a site that it hasn't been at..

https://man.archlinux.org/man/extra/xor … .conf.5.en
It selects the intel driver which you just removed. So you don't only not need it, it must not be there.

But palemoon still takes forever to load a site that it hasn't been at..

That's different from the original problem description that suggested there was no visual response (at all) in the browser and very much suggests a network or dns issue.

dig heise.de
ping -c5 heise.de

Re: Webrowser OPENS but does not REGISTER when clicking tabs[Solved]

I did not know that at all. I was able to fix the problem after figuring out that IPV6=true does not need to be in my iwd.conf. Browsing is now easy without that assigning that statement in my conf file. Was able to fix the time and everything, so everything is all good for now. Thanks.

Please always remember to mark resolved threads by editing your initial posts subject - so others will know that there's no task left, but maybe a solution to find.
