However, with kms, there is a blinking effect that seems to be driver related. fkms performs better, no blinking. However, it has an issue with blasting the Xorg.0.log file with pageflip error messages. So I created the following to disable pageflip:
It does stop the spaming and seems to work well enough… except for watching videos. You will want to stop picom. Far too many dropped frames with it running. But the general desktop experience is improved.
Edit: I find that enabling Webrender in Firefox improves the dropped frame rate to an acceptable enough level, even with picom running.
I found the ARM profile for LXQt easily enough and I am considering forking it. Is there a similar profile for x86_64, or is the use of profiles limited to ARM? Maybe x86_86 just uses a package list for the desktop installation on a minimal install? Unfortunately, it would seem LXQt finds little favor with the Manjaro users, or maybe there is a technical reason I am unaware of?
this little experiment got me thinking about raspberry os(standard 32bit) + i3-wm, the thing i hated the most in raspberry was window management, sure there’s a keyboard shortcut to move windows left or right, no drag to the sides.
