I have some issues with the new power management options introduced to Gnome a while ago and can’t find much about it online so far.
The animations when switching between screens, minimizing or maximizing windows etc. got a bit stuttery and effects like the “burn my windows” extension don’t work at all. It worked all smoothly before and I’ve been using “slimbook battery” before for power management, which worked like a charm.
With the update that introduced the integrated power management options, the problems occured. I decided to wait for a fix in a kernel update, but nothing happened so far.
Is there a way to fix this or at least deactivate the Gnome Shell function and switch back to slimbook battery?
I am using Manjaro Gnome on a Lenovo Ideapad 3, unfortunately with nvidia graphics. I use the proprietary drivers - switching to open drivers didn’t fix the problem.
Alright, I deactivated the daemon and masked it, but not much changed. I also put slimbook battery in charge of power management again, with no improvement. I now reactivated the daemon to be back to standard.
So this wasn’t the issue, as it seems. But everything was running very fluid after upgrading to Gnome 40, just with the update that introduced the new power management options everything became… kind of… choppy…
So thank you very much for the help so far. Does somebody have another idea of what’s going on?
Yes, I rebooted before reversing the changes. No Effect.
Well, the system works basically fine, so it’s not a big issue, it is just… less fun using the system, especially since it worked flawlessly before.
Are there any diagnostics I could run that might enable somebody here to help me find out what causes this behaviour?
