Screen Artifacts after resuming from sleep

Hi everyone,

So recently, after updating to video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-440x-prime, I’ve been getting strange screen artifacts every time the computer resumes from suspend. This was never an issue while using any of the bumblebee drivers. Nvidia drivers losing background images during context switches is apparently a known issue, but one that should have been solved with Qt5.13 and Plasma 5.16.

The issue is not only with chrome, but also with icons in latte dock, and also in the settings application. Usually hovering over the icons in the dock, and restarting chrome will get rid of the issue, but there has to be a better solution than that.

I’ve searched around for solutions to the problem, but the only advice I’ve found was to downgrade from the 450 drivers to the 440 drivers (which I’ve already tried) and to upgrade to Qt5.13 and Plasma 5.16 (but I’m already on Qt5.15 and Plasma 5.19). I’ve also tried to look at the logs, but I don’t see anything that’s relevant.

Any help with the issue would be much appreciated.

Having the same problem after sleep and additionally I frequently loose sound after which I have to fiddle with pulse ro get it back. Unfortunately the 1 October update didn’t fix anything.

I’m also on the nvidia 450 drivers and the 5.8.11-1 kernel, Qt5.15 and Plasma 5.19

I have followed up on various suggestions that I came across but zero results so far.

I found this thread with a similar problem. I also get the Black bar on settings when resuming from suspend, but unlike that thread, going back to the 440 drivers didn’t solve the issue.

I’m on the 440 series pure nVidia, no Intel and don’t have any of these issues…

Also, what are your nVidia OpenGL settings?


They are identical to yours, except the G-Sync part

Edit: Also, If it makes any difference, I switched from using bumblebee to optimus manager when I updated to the 440 drivers.

The problem is solved! (At least on Chrome).

I came across this other question here on the forum and the person pointed to the AMD GPU Arch Wiki page for Chromium artifacts.

While I have an Nvidia GPU I thought I’d give it a shot anyway.

Turns out all I needed to do was set the #enable-vulkan chrome flag and I no longer get strange screen artifacts when waking from sleep. :smile: :tada:
