Graphical issues on GNOME DE on most apps

Ok i will do it tomorrow when i reach home
Btw once again congrats on becoming a leader :grinning:

Ok so i updated it and restarted the system but the issue is still there
Now i plan to rollback with snapshot but the working snapshot with no issue is from 7th Aug(which i took manually) the others are not visible what would you recommend?

I’m only responding to the information in the text, I don’t watch the video (I boycott Google, Microsoft and the like).
It’s possible that it’s a hardware problem, it’s possible that it was the update described and it is possible that it has a completely different cause. And the little information that comes from you isn’t really enough to narrow down the problem (I don’t mean that in a bad way, don’t get me wrong).

If you want to have a running system again quickly, BACKUP all your stuff, download the latest ISO-Build and make a fresh install.

If you want more Trobleshooting, we need more information and your cooperation:

  1. As i say, i don’t see the video. Maybe you can upload this to another source? If not, what exactly is the grafical problem? Is this only on Games or on other applications too?
  2. Your invisible? snapshots: post the output from “sudo snapper list”
  3. Load a snapshot before 10.11.2023 and check via terminal/pacman or octopi if “garuda-video-linux-config-2:1.1.4-4, intel-compute-runtime-23.30.26918.9-1, xf86-video -intel-1:2.99.917+923+gb74b67f0-1” is installed. Is this installed, remove it, reboot your system and run “garuda-update”. If this not installed, then you can rule out that as the cause for now.

Use performance

I change the headline for the crawlers :slight_smile:


The issue is still there on performance mode unfortunately.
Though i think it has to do with the update as in a working snapshot which i took manually this issue is not there though that snapshot is a bit old from 7/Aug

  1. This issue is present in File manager, Brave browser, games. The few things it doesn’t affect is firefox, firedragon, libreoffice apps, terminal, snapper, btrfs assistant.
  2. The snapshots are not exactly invisible i mean only some snapshots are saved right so the one just before this issue arrived is not there and a working snapshot which I manually is from Aug[The only one that doesn’t have this issue]. (i checked it on btrfs assistant and snapper)
    3)As i said No snapshots from 10th Nov

Thought now i am thinking on going back to the snapshot from Aug

I already thought that, from the description it doesn’t fit with a frozen graphics stack and I think it has nothing to do with the update.

Try a live session. Do the same problems arise?

EDIT: Another thought: Do you have the problem consistently or only in battery mode (w/o power conection)?

This looks more like a driver problem. I took a closer look at your inxi again.

  1. You have an Iris Xe Graphic, but the i915 driver is specifically for older iGPUs? Can anyone say anything about this?

driver: X: loaded: N/A unloaded: modesetting
failed: intel
API: OpenGL Message: Unable to show GL data. glxinfo is missing.

Load the old snapshot from 7. August and compare the garuda-inxi with the current one.

~ …i love talking to myself ~

Have you tried a live session? Have you compared the garuda-inxi from the working snapshot with the current garuda-inxi (kernel parameters, graphics, display)?

btw: The i915 kernel driver is the right one for the Iris Xe Graphic. The problem is that X11 doesn’t load the driver.

Boot your Garuda normally (not the working snapshot) with the graphics problems and check the output of:

pacman -Qs intel

If you see intel-graphics-compiler intel-compute-runtime xf86-video-intel, remove this.

Open /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf with an editor and check this entry:

Section “Devices”
Identifier “Intel Graphics”
Driver “modesetting”

What is the parameter at Driver (modesetting? intel? or is it empty?)

~ so I’m out of here… ~


“Sounds” like you may be stuck here…

…and need to enable intel-ucode then.

But I could be wrong. I run Arch+KDE and neither GNOME nor Arch get along very well, not since about 2018 in my experience. I used to run GNOME, I used to love GNOME. But not since about 2018. sniffle

Maybe, maybe not. Was it due to the update in question, did a tool/application/dependency mess something up, or did something go wrong while experimenting with a production system? Only the thread creator knows that (I’ll throw in Xorg.0.log for troubleshooting, I forgot that in a hurry in the previous post). Without more information it’s a puzzle game.

Me too @Arch+KDE, and I’m not a Gnome expert. But I don’t think it’s a Gnome problem.

~ now I’m really out ~

Everything is a GNOME problem. Even GNOME is a GNOME problem.

Until KDE 6 breaks everything, then GNOME might be just fine. :smiley:

i think it looks different and sorry for replying late i was quite busy irl.

The loaded looks different i believe
the kernel paramters are bit different it shows boot image snapshot obviously as i am using it but just in case it is need i will provide the entire output

will do asap and tell you

I think it might have to do with update as i was not experimenting with anything
i will upload the xorg log too in a while

I just checked /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf does not exist the only files there are 00-keyboard.conf and 30-touchpad.conf

the log file Xorg.1.log (do note I opened this file and not the file having old in its name) i cant post it here as the charc limit is present do i need to look for something in particular?
the file location was ~/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log.

This part is for @Bro
it said to edit boot config file so i opened the boot config file in /boot/grub and opened the grub.cfg file it says to not edit it and that is is made automatically by grub.d and default/grub
that is why i did not edit it. Am i talking about the correct file?

Please do not post here in the forum like in chat forums like Telegram.
As long as no one has responded to your post you can edit your post.

@SGS Hast recht. Ist notiert und ich werd mich daran halten (iss auch arg unübersichtlich geworden - iss meine Schuld). Aber dein vorschnelles ändern des Titels trägt auch nicht grad dazu bei, das hier Leute mitlesen die helfen könnten.

@Bro I’ve been reading here since the garuda forum exist. I like your humor btw.

@Private0im Go slowly and step by step. Use for the Xorg.0.log and post the generated link here.

Nun ja, Titel ohne Hinweis auf das Problem sind weder für Suchmaschinen noch für Forenhelfer hilfreich.

The Xorg log file. btw I checked the live USB of the new on garudas website and it works properlyI did not update the live boot if I should try that do tell me) Also in case you didnt read in the old post the the 20-intel.conf does not wxist

I quickly skimmed through your Xorg.0.log, relevant points are:

  1. “intel” (GPU driver) is loaded. WTF? It shouldn’t actually be installed at all, so it should fail and automatically load “modesetting” as a fallback. I already noticed this in your inxi (failed: intel)
  2. “modesetting” is loaded and unloaded again without an error message (which is plausible if “intel” is loaded first without errors and “modesetting” only serves as a fallback).
  3. Hardware acceleration is disabled (plausible without loaded GPU drivers). This explains the graphics problems with applications that use it.
