GNOME Wayland graphical issues on intel integrated gpu

Hello,
I was going to file a bug report but instead decided to ask here first. I’m running Fedora 36 on a Lenovo Yoga 7i 16". Under Wayland sessions (including GDM for login) any sort of mouse movement towards the bottom half of the screen causes a sort of tearing and distortion. This is not present on the X server version of GNOME.

The laptop uses a 16" IPS panel at a native resolution of 2560 x 1600 at 100% scale.
GPU is integrated with a intel i5-1240P.

If I could get some information to better assist anyone willing to help, that would be great.

EDIT: I’m running Kernel 5.19.6

That’s odd because this is generally less likely to happen on Wayland than Xorg. Running on Xorg is certainly an option if it works for you. In your BIOS settings, you likely have an option to change how much memory is allocated to the integrated graphics and increasing that might help here.

Otherwise, please give us the output of inxi -CGxxIM in preformatted or code format.

I am facing the same issue. I have a Lenovo Yoga 7i 14", it has 2880*1800 OLED display 16:10 ratio. GPU is integrated with Intel i7 1260p.

Random artifacts appear when I move the mouse to bottom 180 pixels. This started happening after the recent upgrade to kernel 5.19.x. It didn’t happen on 5.18/17.x

I’m facing the same issue on a Dell XPS 13 plus with fedora 36 on wayland & GDM
No problem with xorg session.

EDIT : Using

Kernel: 5.19.8-200.fc36.x86_64

I have exactly same issue with ThinkPad P14s gen 3 (same as T14s, but with Quadro) and i7-1260P.

X11 - no problem, but on Wayland moving mouse to the bottom ~1/4 of the screen causes artifacts in GDM and Gnome. This happens only on the laptop screen, not the attached monitor.

No issue with 5.18.x kernel; when updated to 5.19.x the issue surfaces. Tested both on Fedora Silverblue and Opensuse Tumbleweed - same issue.

I have temporarily fixed it by using i915.enable_psr=0. Battery life suffers a lot though.

Changed the amount of memory allocated to the iGPU from 256MB to 512MB and the problem persists.

Hi,

It seems that the issue is gone with last kernel update.

Kernel: 5.19.9-300.fc37.x86_64

5.19.9-200.fc36.x86_64 fixed it for me too on Fedora 36.

Yep, as wrongturn and Loic have stated, the new kernel has fixed the issue. Glad this post got relatively popular because I was quite busy after I posted this and wasn’t able to try much.
