[Solved] Weird graphical artifacts on Deepin DE / deepin-wm

Hi,

I've tested installing arch + deepin DE on a virtualbox and it went fine.

Now I did the same to my machine and I get weird graphiocal glitches on deepin related ... parts?
I tried to reinstall deepin/xorg/drivers/younameit several times and am at a dead end. (which is my usual linux experience)

Some information that might help: (?)

I have a AMD R9 Nano and installed the xf86-video-amdgpu. Its also loading fine at bootime as module, as set in mkinitcpio.conf.
The glitches dont apper on websites/videos in firefox or other programs.
The transparency on the deepin terminal works fine.

Screenshots:

Glitchy Settings Thing

I hope anybody could help me. sad

Re: [Solved] Weird graphical artifacts on Deepin DE / deepin-wm

Try downgrading to the 4.9.11 kernel; it solved the graphics glitchiness in X with AMD for me. This seems to be an issue with the 4.10 kernel and OpenGL acceleration. I encountered this bug with KDE 5.

Edit: You could also install linux-lts, it's at 4.9.16 right now. Might be easier than downgrading the linux package.

Re: [Solved] Weird graphical artifacts on Deepin DE / deepin-wm

Okay, weird things are happening.

I was looking through the catnet for answers. Then I discovered that i couldnt run glxinfo or glxgears.
(I wouldnt know how or why I would use them, but thats not the point right now)
Turns out they are no longer in mesa package, but in the mesa-demos package.

So I installed mesa-demos and run gxlinfo (and got a lot of information on alien mating rituals, I assume)
Then I ran glxgears, and.. well there were gears turning, which is a good thing I assume.
My screen flickered once during the gears demo. I didn't pay much attention to that.
After I closed the glxgears though... I've found all the glitches were gone and everything looked smooth. yikes

I rebooted to see if it would last, and it wouldn't.

So I made a screenshot how it was looking after the reboot.
Ran glxgears again... Nothing.
Ran gxlgears once more, and got another display flicker that fixed the glitches again.
And this is how it looks now (before another reboot  makes it go glitchy again).

Maybe this helps anyone. ^^;;

Edit: I've recreated the "I run glxgears to get my screen to flicker and fix my glitch" while I had a journalctl -f running.
This is the output (if it helps anyone). Seems the deepin-wm crashes and starts again (this tiem working fine). Or am I misreading the events?

Re: [Solved] Weird graphical artifacts on Deepin DE / deepin-wm

Ok, after searching for deepin-wm crash and glitches I found this thread that seems to adress the issue and also solves my glitch issues.

By pressind Super+Shift+Tab I can ebable/disable "Window effects".
Disabling them fixes my glitches (altthough diables the shiny window effects).

So I guess for now its solved and I hope the issue will be fixed by the deepin team sometime in the future. smile

Thanks for the help. smile

Re: [Solved] Weird graphical artifacts on Deepin DE / deepin-wm

I was having what sounds like exactly the same issue with a brand new installation of Deepin on a crappy old laptop I had lying around.

Disabling Window Effects certainly did fix the issue, but I didn't consider this an acceptable solution.  Especially because multiple desktops are only available with Window Effects enabled  (why on earth, btw !??).

Anyway, I discovered that by default my display settings were set to Extend to an extra monitor... Deepin had seen that this old laptop has a VGA port and despite there being no external monitor connected at all, it was trying to extend my display there.  My mouse even disappeared off the end of the screen as if it were on some other screen to one side.

Changing the display setting to Only display on my laptop screen fixed the "weird graphical artifacts" issue.
