Flickers on 2nd monitor on cinamon 19.2

Post by Beerforfree » Thu Aug 08, 2019 8:19 pm

I'm getting a black shadow on windows of some apps when moved to the 2nd monitor they come and go or flicked especially when I'm moving focus to other windows. The background image on the 2nd monitor does nasty flickers and gets black strips and doesn't refresh when it's changed on the 1st monitor. My background images are set on slide show. It looks there are some video troubles with a 2nd monitor, this used to work troubleless on 19.1

Have you tried a fixed background instead of slide-show to narrow down the bug ?

I tried this with the same problem
Xfce 19.2 has not this issue, I will probably move to this flavour and it is much faster as well
Cinamon 19.2 is really slow compared to previous releases
