Ugh, and I’m back.
WHY SWEET MERCIFUL GOD DO YOU DO THIS?!
After a couple of screen locks, the behavior in the video occurs upon waking the screen. This is fairly mild compared to other distros, but I thought I’d document it nonetheless.
This happens on every distro, much less frequently on Ubuntu 18.04 and it has only happened twice so far on Solus, which is as infrequent as it has ever been.
So with Solus and Ubuntu 18.04, I’d say it happens every 20 - 50 unlocks. With Debian, Arch, Fedora, Ubuntu 16.04, this happens all the time. In Debian, it happens when I connect to WiFi and open Terminal too quickly. Have to close the laptop to get it to stop, even then it doesn’t always stop until I reboot.
I can duplicate it pretty regularly by locking the screen and waiting a few seconds. As you can see above, once I log into Solus it stops.
But, why does it happen, and why does it happen on every Linux distro I use?
Does not happen on Windows 8.1 or Windows 10, I’ve tested to verify it’s not the screen or iGPU.
