[SOLVED] Line of text fuzzes out on forum

Post by Ozo » Mon Jan 29, 2018 11:28 am

I have noticed that once in a while a line of text (just one) will fuzz out (difficult to see) when viewing the forum but when I click on the post it cleans right up. I will try to get a photo.

Please generate an overview of your system like this:
- Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window);
- make the terminal window full screen, to avoid chopped lines;
- Copy/paste this command into the terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
(if you type: the letter F is a capital letter)

Press Enter.

Copy/paste the output in your next message.

Here is the result of "grep modesetting /var/log/Xorg.0.log" after the switch. I will mark this solved barring any more screen tearing.
