I’m looking for some instruction on how to troubleshoot the screen flicker I’m getting on my workstation.
The issue begins in GDM after a boot. Certain mouse movements or menu animations will be accompanied by a flicker across my screen.After logging in the issue persists and a flicker can be seen when I press the super key to open the gnome search window.
If I go into displays and change the screen refresh rate from 60 to 30 and back to 60, this usually fixes my issue, including if I log out and log back in. However, if I reboot my system, the issue comes back and I have to play with the display refresh options again.
Can I get information on where I should begin troubleshooting the issue?
