if go to settings and find the “compositor” (perhaps under your window manager settings) and try turning it on/off. May help

That worked for me, thank you.
Maybe there is another solution without disabling all the effects?

defo’, my friend. Have a look at this over-recommended video:

It covers fun info about how the compositor works, but more importantly why you should care. After watching that, you should feel more comfortable researching other compositors to install that meet your needs, OR, since your current setup is probably a little bugged, how to edit some settings of your current compositor :slight_smile:

If you play games, you will love the fact that you can change settings in the first place- really makes the system run as you want it with proper use.
