graphics issue on helium - terminator + 4K external monitor

Hi,

Posting this in a separate thread from "testing beta/RC", as this is possibly not related to bunsenLabs, but rather to debian.

I have the following problem on a thinkpad x250 with bunsenLabs helium beta installed in it, and a 4K monitor connected via displayPort 1.2.

How to reproduce

* open terminator
* move terminator window to the external screen
* type text inside terminator

Expected behaviour: screen stays on

Observed behaviour: screen sometimes gets all black for a few seconds (2 to 4). Happens randomly when typing text, roughly once when 20 characters are typed, not regular though.

The problem happens both when typing on an external keyboard, or with the internal keyboard (and external keyboard plugged out).

The other software displayed on the external screen behave correctly, the issue is only with terminator.


$ lspci -v | grep VGA -A10

OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 4.50
OpenGL core profile context flags: (none)
OpenGL core profile profile mask: core profile

Uninstalling xserver-xorg-video-intel and rebooting didn't solve the problem.

Disabling compositing didn't solve the problem either


Any clues?

Re: graphics issue on helium - terminator + 4K external monitor

Anything in ~/.xsession-errors while you are experiencing the problem?

EDIT: does this happen with a better terminal emulator?

Urxvt is a known good egg:

sudo apt install rxvt-unicode-256color
urxvt

The messages right at the bottom are probably related to the issue in question here.


Some messages are probably related to another problem that I have: webGL is disabled in Firefox 59 - even if I force its activation in the config. For some reason, in Firefox developer edition (v60), webgl is enabled.

Re: graphics issue on helium - terminator + 4K external monitor

I just installed urxvt,  used it to install and configure a few stuff I needed, seems to be running well

So only terminator displays this error then?

Re: graphics issue on helium - terminator + 4K external monitor

Regarding webGL disabled on firefox, I  found some information here, it is a regression to be fixed in version 60

cf. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1417291

Re: graphics issue on helium - terminator + 4K external monitor

Might be unrelated, but worth a try: There is in ~/.config/terminator/config the line "last_active_window = True" - if you remove it and restart terminator, do you get the same behavior?

Thanks. I should have access again to that monitor next week, I'll try that.

Switched to urxvt as a workaround, lightweight rocks smile

Hi, I plugged this laptop to the 4K monitor again today, and intended to try your suggestion. Turns out there is no such line in the config file...

Thanks anyway.
