I got the Alienware oled monitor and since then the screen is flickering (just with Manjaro - no flickering with Kubuntu). I have tried different refresh rates but other than that I dont know what I could do.
It is just this one Monitor I am using. Connection via DP.

Hey @Fred_VIE this could help… specially since you have problems with the GUI after reboot.
I hope this info is self explaining to you… just create a emty file and copy that stuff and into it also add .sh at the end of the filename. btw you dont see a good result when changing in the UI and using Terminal commands… so the powermizer may didnt show up the right result… you have decide for yourself which way fits better for your like.
I total with you here and for me its works after a restart, but this can be solved…
With this little script you can also reload nvidia settings after restart:
Try if this works…
You can also create a autostart command if you dont want to always clicking on the bashscripts on your desktop… there are several ways to add something in autostart…
I could even deactivate g-sync on my Monitor, this was a much bigger fight
Thanks! The only thing I would like to change though is “force full composition pipeline”.
I have never used scrpits. Would I just righklick it and choose “run in console”? Well when I try that it says Warning: Could not find ‘/home/fred/Desktop/NV-x-server-reload-nv-settings.sh’, starting ‘/bin/bash’ instead. Please check your profile settings.`
(All those cryptic error messages :P)
Adding something to autostart is the easy part, making it actually run is a whole different matter.
The 2nd line works in the console without error but no settings are being saved still.
I can now suddenly export the settings file but that’s kinda pointless if the program refuses to load it on restart.
If this is really true, then you have a really big issue with your system.
Did you really created a empty file and copy that text in it?
nvidia-settings -l just loads your previous settings, nothing more.
I have this in autostart and it works.
I have no idea which export settings are you talking now… if you talking about the simple savefile option is working now… just overwrite the old setting file and check if nvidia-settings -l or follow the youtube video guide, that i had sending to you from my yesterdays answers from another Thread.
What big issue can one have after just installing the OS and a few programs?
Yep, I created a new one on the desktop and renamed it. Maybe the issue was that the created one used to be a txt file (that came automatically)?
Once it works after doubleclicking it I’ll put it in the autostart. The savefile option works, just not in the folder it suggests. I could just save it in my documents folder but it wont load from there.
I used Kubuntu because of the flickering, but I am going to try max performance next time I need Manj. Atm I am still running both for personal reasons, but also in case I can not fix a problem in one of them (to avoid having to start Win).
I could also use the onboard GPU considering I am not playing lately anyways thus the 2080 is not really needed at this point (and way too slow).
Unfortunately the flickering still happens in adaptive mode for me. It seems to be flickering a bit less frequently but maybe I am imagining it. I did not try performance mode because I dont want to waste unnecessary energy for mere desktop work.
Weird is though. When I restarted Linux and started the nv-settings from the task bar it said mode auto (currently adaptive).
When I started the nv-settings panel via the console with sudo it said adaptive.
