390.XX Chrome screen capture broken


I have a GTX 970 and driver versions 390.XX introduce nasty Chrome bugs for me:

  • The list of most popular sites when I open up a new tab is broken. Page previews are black or contain corrupted data.
  • Screen capture (e.g. in Hangouts) is completely broken. When I share my screen, others see just random garbage.

The only solution is to use 387.XX drivers, which sadly don’t support Linux 4.15.

There are 387.xx patches to support linux 4.15 - however on optimus laptops, prime synchronization is not working.
