KDE window painting & refreshing issues [SOLVED]

Postby davidcim » 12 Nov 2015 13:16

After updating my solydk I have now weird issues with KDE window refreshing and painting. For example Konsole seems to forget to repaint and some times the content is moved a bit up and gets clipped. Specially kate is unusable in this state. Dolphin and System settings are also affected. Other non KDE apps such as Netbeans, Firefox or Gimp work ok.

My plasma & kate versions:

Code: Select all

$ kate --version
Qt: 4.8.6
Plataforma de desarrollo de KDE: 4.14.2
Kate: 3.14.2
Last update packages from the apt log:

Edit:

After rebooting everything has been working ok again for a while but unfortunately... the issue is here again :(

Any ideas?... what can be causing this?...

Re: KDE window painting & refreshing issues

Edit: not true. The problem is not solved :(

I have solved the problem reverting the lastest update for these packages:

Code: Select all

libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0
ibgdk-pixbuf2.0-common
gir1.2-gdkpixbuf-2.0
Version 2.31.1-2+deb8u3 mess up every single qt app.
Version 2.31.1-2+deb8u2 works properly.

The latest security update broke things at least for me. It seems this package is a low level library for bitmap manipulation which is part of GTK+. However it is breaking my QT apps :shock:

I'm glad you solved your problem but how did you find out which packages were to blame and what to do about it?

Please, write "[Solved]" in the subject line of the initial post when you're done.

Nop... not solved :( ... the problem is back again. My bad, it is difficult to test because the problem takes sometime (hours) to show up again after a session login.

I'm trying to figure out which package (if any) is responsible of this issue. The problem started after the latest solydkx update so I'm trying 2 different approaches:

1. I have looked at the apt log to see which packages were updated. Then I try downgrading some of them and wait to see if helps.

2. I'm looking the package dependencies of the affected programs in order to find which ones are involved. This will allow me to google something because I have no idea about what could be failing. The common packages included in all affected programs are:

Code: Select all

kde-runtime
libkdecore5
libkdeui5
libqt4-dbus
libqtcore4
libqtgui4
libstdc++6

I'm having the same issues as you are. I haven't been able to identify where the issues lie either. I'll keep this thread updated if I make any progress.

FYI: I am experiencing the problem on both a desktop and a laptop. Laptop uses the Nouveau screen driver and the desktop is an Intel onboard GPU.....so I'm pretty sure it is not the display drivers (as you have ascertained).

Thank you veggydawson, any help will be appreciated.

Another upgraded package with this update was ddm, upgraded from 2.1.7 to 2.2.0 . This is a solydxk package developped by Arjen Balfoort <arjenbalfoort@solydxk.nl> which description is:
Device driver manager
Device Driver Manager is a tool to help users installing third-party hardware drivers. Currently Nvidia, ATI and Broadcom
drivers can be installed and allow to install the PAE kernel for multi-core 32-bit systems.
When I run ddm it detect my NVIDIA propetary driver:

Image

I speculate about the ddm package configuration affecting my NVIDIA configuration during the upgrade. I say this because I remember that when I followed the debian bumblebee instruction to install my NVIDIA optimus I read this:

https://wiki.debian.org/Bumblebee :
Warning: If you choose to install bumblebee-nvidia and the dependent nvidia driver packages, during postinst, you will see a debconf prompt warning you that you need to create a xorg.conf file in order to use the proprietary nvidia driver. This prompt only applies to non-Optimus users, i.e. single Nvidia GPU systems. Do NOT allow debconf to create a xorg.conf file, and do NOT run nvidia-xconfig! (This prompt always appears when you install nvidia packages through the repositories, and it currently does not detect Optimus/bumblebee users. See 735049 for a brief explanation.)

When DDM detects an optimus, it will execute itself with parameters.
You can check the script for optimus (function install_nvidia, search for "bumblebee") if you want: /usr/bin/ddm

I see this code:

Code: Select all

      # purge nvidia-xconfig and move xorg.conf away
      apt-get purge -y --force-yes nvidia-xconfig 2>&1 | tee -a $LOG
      mv -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.ddm 2>&1 | tee -a $LOG
Please, attach /var/log/ddm.log after you used it to install the drivers (rename to .txt before you do).

I have not installed the driver with ddm. I installed originally through apt following the debian instructions. You mean I should reinstall the driver with ddm?

No, reinstalling wouldn't make a difference. The log file is only interesting if you used DDM for the installation.
If you know bash you can check the script for correctness.

Ok I will check it carefully.

However the issue only affects QT applications. Other applications such as firefox, chrome, netbeans are painted perfectly, no glitches. Also the other user with the same problem say he has two computers affected with different display cards. Anyway I will continue flying blind.

Yes, that is true.

The laptop is a Dell and before I used Solyd, I tried to get the Optimus/bumblebee drivers working but failed (GEForce GT-540M). Now it is just running standard distro installed display drivers.

The Desktop machine is a development workhorse and doesn't need fancy graphics other than high resolution. THerefore it is running a 4K screen from the on-board Intel graphics....so I don't believe the issue is an NVidia based problem.

I get exactly the same issue with QT apps. All others (GTK) run fine. Firefox, Chrome, Netbeans etc have no issues....but obviously a KDE based distro not rendering QT assets properly causes a multitude of problems.

I'm still no nearer the cause or a solution, I'm afraid.

Okay, I don't experience any of these issues. So, that makes me suspect it's a configuration problem of some sort.

Did you try to create a new user and see if that solves the issue?

No, I haven't - it tends to be only me that uses the machines. If it is a configuration issue then why should it happen now....after both machines have been operating and updating regularly for a long time?

Unfortunately, it is not as easy as just creating a another user and the effects can take some time to manifest themselves. I'll see if I can get it to fail with a new user over the weekend on the laptop.

Thanks for the advice.....I'll keep you posted!

I have just started a second kde session with a different user. Let's wait and see what happens.

My solydxk installation is not a fresh one. I remember all sort of problems when I moved from the old solydxk repositories to the current debian jessie ones. For example the kdm display manager entered in a loop and the X session could not be started. After removing the kdm and installing lightdm among many other procedures from the forums I succeeded in having an stable state. May be I still have installed some old package that I should not have which is interfering somehow with the QT libraries.

The fact is that everything worked fine until the updatemanager installed the last upgrade. I always am afraid when I install updates. In my experience as a Linux user this is always a risky operation. I would be very happy if I do not have to reinstall everything so any idea will be welcomed.
