There is this really strange graphical (artifact?) that I’ve ignored for a bit, but I’m hoping there is a fix for it.
It’s hard to explain but if I use my mouse to move anything (like an image) or hover my mouse above text as I write the mouse seems to disappear and the text will “disappear” along with the mouse symbol.
It’s pretty jarring, I believe it’s an issue with maybe the GPU or the Nvidia driver but this is just a guess
Below are screenshots (unfortunately I can only post 1 screenshot)–hopefully the screenshot makes sense, any commands I can run to assist in the troubleshooting process?
Thanks in advance!
Screenshot below…this is what the graphical error looks like:
Yeah, I mean, I understand that I could just move my mouse out of the way as a work around but sometimes I have to click somewhere in the text to make edits and the mouse cursor will glitch out like the screenshot above… This graphical error makes it a difficult to make edits, because not only does hovering over the text break, highlighting text and place the cursor in-between text is broken.
Thanks, needed a head start I’ll pull that info later
I decided to upgrade, eventually I hope there will be a fix for this issue.
It’s an annoying bug, but not world ending, + I think the upgrade fixed whatever was causing my laptop fans to spin at medium - high.
Now my fans sound like they would when idle (like on Windows or other Linux distros) so, I’m much happier with that vs this graphical bug.
I’ll try to get Wayland to work again, I’ve been having issues, but if I recall correctly this issue didn’t exist when I was on Wayland. I switched to Wayland for application support, but it was only 1 app I used.
What’s great about switching to Wayland, this thing is SMOOOOOOOTHHHHHH, it’s not choppy at all (for example on xORG most graphical items like moving the window looked unnatural). Moving windows and animations look snappy and beautiful.
Also, my mouse issue has been fixed, and I’m on the latest F35.
All in all, happy with the fixes, mouse works, animation are smooth and fluid switching to Wayland, upgrading to F35 fixed my laptops fan issue, and I’m on Plasma Wayland, which is my favorite so far
