Flickering when opening windows in KDE

When opening not maximized windows the rest of the screen starts to flicker black in KDE

.

I’ve tried recomendations to Change the compositor to OpenGl 3 and to change the vsync. Also I’ve tried changing the kernel to 4.17 but no progress. Please help.

Flickering cannot be seen in an image, I suppose…
Do you mean the green blur around the window?

Some system info might help.

inxi -SMGxxxz
neofetch --off

Hahaha yes, I know. It’s the black sections in the screenshot.

Try with another KWin theme, to see if it still has problem.
Any customization to your gpu modules at Xorg and/or modules-load?

cat /etc/X11/xog.conf.d/*.conf
cat /etc/modules-load.d/*.conf | grep intel
cat /etc/modprobe.d/*.conf | grep intel

No diference.

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "system-keyboard"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
        Option "XkbLayout" "us"
        Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
        Option "XkbVariant" "altgr-intl"
EndSection

Nothing came back.

Thanks for your help btw.

For now I just reinstalled xg86-video-intel. I think it’s working, but usually it starts flickering after some time, so i’ll wait and let you know.

When I do a re-install I have the same. I always found that once things are installed, I do a reboot and the flickering stops by itself.

here a video of flickering only problem is when simple screen recorder is recording it just go black , doesn’t flicker…

can this be fixed does anyone know?
