Hey guys, I’m very new to Linux so please bear with me.
I’ve recently installed Manjaro fresh (dual boot alongside Win10), with KDE as the DE, and so far almost everything is great! But I’ve got a couple of minor issues:
When scrolling/watching videos on Firefox, there is massive screen Tearing, and stuttering. It’s not smooth at all, and the effect is even greater if I attempt to watch a 4K60fps YouTube video as a test. When using Google Chrome the tearing stops, but it’s still very stutter.
Second, my Bluetooth headset won’t automatically connect sometimes, I don’t have bluez installed, I’ve just got whatever comes as default and I just can’t make it consistently autoconnect.
And last, the date and time keeps changing when I switch back to Windows. I’ve set “RTC in local TZ: yes” and “NTP service: active” in timedatectl as recommended in some other forums, but windows is still whacked out.
I’m not sure exactly the specs you’ll need so I’ll just dump as much info as I can think of:
Device: Lenovo Yoga 920 (80Y7)
GPU: Integrated graphics
OS: Manjaro 20.1 Mikah
Kernel: x86_64 Linux 5.8.1-3-MANJARO
DE: KDE 5.73.0 / Plasma 5.19.4
Display server: X11
And a quick question, I’m on Kwin as the WM at the moment since it’s the default, should I change it to something else, or is Kwin the recommended one?
Thanks so much for any help!!
