Intel i915 sna make browser tab title fonts blink

Hi,

I'm using sna with my i915 Intel card and I have experienced some blinking fonts in the title of the browser tabs. This happens in Chromium and Firefox.

It seems that the blinking is only in the last words of the title, where's some kind of shadowing on them, as if this "shadow" effect is failing.

When I use uxa, this doesn't happens.

I'm using Gnome 3.6.

Is there anyone else facing the same problem?

Regards.

Re: Intel i915 sna make browser tab title fonts blink

I am using i915 card (KDE4) and no I am not experiencing this problem altho I am not using xorg.conf file at all.

By default intel uses sna acceleration so i am guessing it should blink just like in your case. I do have however some stuff from AUR installed that might possibly affect my GPU.

dri2proto-git-20121217-1-any.pkg.tar.xz
libdrm-git-20121217-1-i686.pkg.tar.xz
glproto-git-20121217-1-i686.pkg.tar.xz
libglu-git-20121217-1-i686.pkg.tar.xz

Regards.

Andrzej

Actually default intel uses uxa: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/In … ion_method

I only knew this because I just recently enabled sna.  I haven't had the issues mentioned in the op, but I'm using dwm.


I laugh, yet the joke is on me

Re: Intel i915 sna make browser tab title fonts blink

Just switched to sna to verify and confirm the issue if possible and the answer is no. Text is solid.

Are You using desktop effects / compositing or stuff like that? Any specific sites where it happens?

Sorry about the confusion I was 99.9% sure Intel was using sna by default...

Regards.

Hi guys, thanks for the reply.

Since it seems that you're not using gnome 3.6, and regards to the question about the compositing effects, I'm suspecting that it has to do with the compositing of gnome 3.6. I'll try to disable it and see what happens.

Thanks

Hi again,

I just test with the gnome 3 fallback mode, I think in this mode there's no compositing, the guake's transparency shows the wallpaper.

But, the fonts problem keep happening. It happens when I move the mouse over the last letters of the tittle, but just the long titles, short titles doesn't show the "shadow" thing in the end.
