Re: Flashing black borders around windows with Nvidia-390 and Mint 19

Workaround-wise, I'll maximize a terminal. I can confirm it only affects the desktop background.

Flashing black borders around windows with Nvidia-390 and Mint 19

I have a laptop I just upgraded to Mint 19. It has an Nvidia GTX 960M in it, and I frequently use it with a second monitor. When windows are on the second monitor, and I wave the mouse over them, they gain a small, flashing black border: https://i.imgur.com/VB5YzN4.png If there are two windows nearb...

Re: Buzzing/crackling headphones with HP Pavilion 15t TRRS jack

For anyone who comes across this thread in search of a solution, it's currently an open kernel bug.

Re: Buzzing/crackling headphones with HP Pavilion 15t TRRS jack

I've messed around with turning off the mic input on the TRRS jack with hdajackretask, but that doesn't seem to function quite as I'd expect: sound will oftentimes cut out altogether. I may just buy a TRRS splitter and see if that fixes it.

Re: Buzzing/crackling headphones with HP Pavilion 15t TRRS jack

Installing the upstream 4.4.12 Ubuntu kernel doesn't fix the problem, but does at least correctly ID the chip:

Code: Select all

$ grep -iR Codec /proc/asound/card*
/proc/asound/card0/codec#0:Codec: Realtek ALC295
/proc/asound/card0/codec#2:Codec: Intel Skylake HDMI

Re: Buzzing/crackling headphones with HP Pavilion 15t TRRS jack

I suspect an audio driver issue. Poking around in /sys, I find that this laptop has a Realtek ALC295 chip, support for which only appeared in kernel 4.4.12 (June 1st), and we're currently on 4.4.0 in Mint 18, according to synaptic.

Buzzing/crackling headphones with HP Pavilion 15t TRRS jack

So, I have an HP Pavilion 15t (a Costco special version), running Mint 18 64-bit with Cinnamon. I'm having issues with the headset jack. With four different pairs of headphones (i.e. devices with TRS plugs) and two different headsets (i.e., devices with TRRS plugs), there's a great deal of crosstalk...
