Hello, hope that everyone is doing fine.
Lately, roughly after kernel 5.7, I have been investigating a patter that arises on proprietary drivers for Nvidia cards on Plasma, probably after the Plasma update itself, but don’t quote me on that.
Basically, after the system wakes up back from sleep:
- if the system was locked, then it ends up resulting in a black screen with an active cursor;
- if the system was unlocked (i.e. preventing to lock after resuming from sleep), then the system is relatively fine, but it ends up with minor graphical issues like broken transparency or other compositor issues. Upon locking the screen (super+L) a similar error occurs: all the interface is frozen but the mouse. However no black screen is present, almost like as the screen was locked, but the lockscreen did not display.
I am currently running Linux 5.8 with video-nvidia-450xx drivers. Switching to 440xx did not fix the issue, nor switching to Linux 5.7, or 5.6.
Note I can still access other sessions via ctrl+alt+f2, so the system isn’t frozen.
Did anyone end up noticing the same issue? Thanks anyone in advance for helping out.
