Re: Occasional screen flicker and black square around windows

So the new switch solved my problem. I switched from this to this.

I am thinking it has to do with the EDID emulator, the 60hz refresh rate compatibility, or both in the new KVM switch. Hopefully this thread might help someone in the future.

Cheers!

Re: Occasional screen flicker and black square around windows

Oops! I forgot about checking that supported 56.00-75.00 Hz range. You would have to change the line in the xorg.conf file to VertRefresh 54.0 - 75.0 , but that is probably not a good idea. No problem. I'll just wait for the new hardware. Thanks again, and happy new year! As it turns out, my switch...

Re: Occasional screen flicker and black square around windows

You can test using a mode with a lower refresh rate, which will then be below the pixel clock limit of 165 MHz. This mode is using 54 Hz and was generated by umc (universal modeline calculator). Change the Modeline in the xorg.conf file to this: Modeline "2560x1080_53.92" 162.50 2560 2608 2640 2720...

Re: Occasional screen flicker and black square around windows

I’ve ordered some new hardware that might do the trick, but if it doesn’t work then I’ll report back and try the 380 driver per your instructions.

Thanks for your help, and happy new year!

Re: Occasional screen flicker and black square around windows

Sorry about that. I believe this is the correct log with the single monitor attatched: link System will only allow me an 800x600 resolution now. Here is my current xorg file just to make sure we're on the same page: Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "Layout0" Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0 Option "Xinerama"...

Re: Occasional screen flicker and black square around windows

Here is the log Suggestions didn't work. My kvm switch is definitely giving me the problems. I bought a 4k 60hz capable hdmi cable for kvm input and another one for output, and I got a 4k 60hz capable DP to HDMI converter, plugged it all in, and my monitor showed the HP logo for the bios then it cu...

Re: Occasional screen flicker and black square around windows

The same warning message: [ 69.517] (WW) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Mode is rejected: PixelClock (185.6 MHz) too high for [ 69.517] (WW) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Display Device (Max: 165.0 MHz). So with everything set identical to your previous topic, the obvious conflict is coming from the older nvidia-340 driver. I kn...

The nvidia-340 driver appears to have no problem reading the EDID file and this info is from it: max dotclock 240MHz

Would you restart your system with the TLC monitor disconnected. Post the Xorg.0.log.
Here you go

Re: Occasional screen flicker and black square around windows

I suggest removing the EDID for the TCL monitor in the xorg.conf file because it probably won’t be needed. Then post the output of xrandr --prop and the Xorg.0.log file. Edid removed from xorg.conf: Here is Xorg.0.log xrandr --prop : xrandr --prop Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 3840 x 1080, maxim...

Re: Occasional screen flicker and black square around windows

The EDID files have been found, but I am still unable to switch resolutions. I was reccomended to add NoMaxPClkCheck to the mode validation string, and it did give me the option to select 2560x1080 as a resolution. One I selected it, however, my computer gave me another black screen freeze, and I co...

This line should have a semicolon between the two EDID files, but yours has a comma:

Code: Select all

Option "CustomEDID" "DP-0:/home/redpinko/edid.bin; DP-1:/home/redpinko/edid2.bin"
It still can't find it, even after fixing that.

Re: Occasional screen flicker and black square around windows

It depends on the custom edid you're using. Maybe leave that out and use ignoreedid option since you also have a monitor section. Well, I atleast think I figured out why it isn't working. Running xed /var/log/Xorg.0.log with the debug option in the file, I found this: [ 1937.611] (II) NVIDIA(GPU-0)...

Re: Occasional screen flicker and black square around windows

So I fixed all the issues by installing the 340 driver. The only problem that remains is my original original one. My resolution (2560x1080) is not detected by my main monitor, so my old xorg.conf settings do not work in that regard. Also my login screen is popping up on DP-1 for some reason.

Re: Occasional screen flicker and black square around windows

I'm gonna try replacing the KVM switch with something of better quality. I have a feeling that a lot of these issues might by stemming from the switch I kinda cheaped out on. For the LG Ultrawide I'm using MT-VIKI 2port HDMI KVM, and for the TLC I'm using XtremPro two way HDMI switch. The MT-VIKI do...

That was correct. Remove the pound sign and remove Option "nvidiaXineramaInfo" "false"
Try testing this option:
Option "nvidiaXineramaInfoOverride" "2560x1080+0+0, 1920x1080+2560+0"
That crashed cinnamon aswell

Try testing this X Config option: Option "nvidiaXineramaInfo" "false" When using that option, add a pound sign ( # ) in front of this line, to disable it: Option "nvidiaXineramaInfoOrder" "DFP-0" Are you seeing flickering on both monitors? Yeah the flickering is on both monitors, simultaneously. To...

You can try adding the X Config option Option "UseHotplugEvents" "false" to the Device or Screen section.
Unfortunately that did not work, and the flickering still persists.
