I did a fresh install of Manjaro 21.0.1 on my new laptop (Thinkpad L13 Yoga Gen2) and things work out pretty well so far. I need to take screenshots quite often and it looks like all screenshot tools (Xfce’s integrated one, Shutter, even Gimp’s screenshot dialog) are having trouble, they all capture garbage – a screen state which is an hour or so old. It looks like the video driver does not update some cached version of the screen state for a long time.
I can work around the problem by
- going to standby (S3 mode), after waking up screenshot tools work as expected
- switching from Compiz to Xfwm
- reloading Compiz
All those actions seem to update the “screen content cache”.

I’m a bit puzzled about how to search for solutions on the net, couldn’t find a similar problem so far.
Thanks for any input,
