Continuing with my Linux journey of "Oh sheesh, what's happening now?" I present, this.
The obligatory inxi.
So on Frank here (My Manjaro Testing 'puter) I've been chasing down a very odd problem.
I'll get a random millisecond flash or blink on my monitor at seemingly random intervals.
I've been chasing this little sucker for a week now and couldn't figure it out. First thing I did was change the DP cable, then switched to an HDMI cable, then another.
I finally found the program doing it...
Redshift. So I changed over to
f.lux and it also caused the flash/blink.
I dug through every log I could find pertaining to
KDE, Journal, etc.... there's absolutely nothing I could find or should I say recognize as a fault somewhere.
I'm just not sure where the problem lies... yes, the two programs that alter your screen temperate are causing it but I'm not sure where the conflict it. The gpu driver? KDE? the Compositor? The program itself?
Just to put another twist on this. I installed
Redshift on my craptop (that's its official name now) which is running Lubuntu 19.04 temporarily. It does it on that as well, although much less often.
So, uh, how do you file a bug report to whom ever this issue belongs if you have no logs/readouts/tablets/smoke-signals to show what's going on?
How does one go about tracking down the seemingly untraceable problem?
As ever, thank you for any help.
