After installing the NVIDIA driver from the Solus repos, I noticed that after every reboot, my screen flashes before the desktop environment is loaded. The issue does not exist when using the nouveau driver (I tried uninstalling the NVIDIA driver and with nouveau, only a black screen appears between the login process and the loading of the DE). When I reinstalled the NVIDIA driver, the screen flashed again as before.
I used nvidia-settings to create my
/etc/X11/xorg.conf file, and I can see that the refresh rate of 144 Hz works, but the issue still persists.
I’m attaching a gif that shows the screen flash and the
