Re: [opensuse-factory] Want to make a plasma session flicker like mad?
Hello Ian,

I am observing a similar behavior since a while. Could you try
restarting the kwin session. (Or rather: Start a new one with "kwin_x11
--replace"). If the problem vanishes, I would be quite sure that it is
the same problem.

The effect on my PC is about the same one like in this video (not made
by me):

Till now I wasn't able to narrow it further down. Sometimes I had the
impression that VLC is able to cause the problem. But it is not the only

It may be interesting that I noted the same behavior on an Arch Linux
installation on the same PC. To be exact: I reinstalled the PC because I
hoped that plasma on OpenSUSE would be slightly more stable.

Eventually this problem depends on the used graphics hardware?

I have a Radeon card. hwinfo --gfxcard gives the following model:
Model: "ATI Turks XT [Radeon HD 6670/7670]"

I'm using the open source radeon driver.

Kind regards

Try using the Vivaldi (64bit) browser for a while, use the mouse wheel to
scroll up and down in various sites. i'm only playing with it for reading
newspaper sites like the guardian, telegraph, huffington, metro and some of
those sites hate being scrolled via the mouse wheel (though no problem in
other browsers)
If the pages start to flicker when scrolling then exit the browser and watch
the desktop do the same for a while.
Admittedly, vivaldi is a work in progress but i have no idea what to report
i can't get it to do this every time. Just wish i could record it to show it

i'm concerned that it affects the desktop after the browser has closed. I'm
using kwin/plasma 5 - latest tumbleweed versions
