Sometimes, while I’m simply navigating on my desktop (switching tabs, opening an app), or right after I switch to another activity or virtual desktop, KWin would freeze for few seconds then it’d restart. I’d get the notification, “Desktop effects were restarted due to a graphics reset”.
- Kubuntu 18.10
- Zotac GTX 1060 6GB
- Intel Core i5-6500
- 2 1080p monitors
I posted this same problem on KDE’s bugtracking site, but they told me that it’s a driver bug.
I tried switching rendering backend between OpenGL 3.1 & 2.0 (currently on 3.1), enabled ForceCompositionPipeline & ForceFullCompositionPipeline (currently disabled), enabled & disabled various desktop effects (like the wiggle desktop and translucency)
