UHD Graphics 630

Post by manifesto » Thu May 16, 2019 8:40


I have just installed a new laptop (dell precison) with UHD Graphics 630 card.
I am using KDE and after install KDE was almost unusable, all plasma menu and other widget were flickering and mostly not usable.
I have been searching aroung (other distro doenst have the issue) and finally I got it fixed by using modesetting mode (https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Intel#xorg.conf_2) :

Code: Select all

Section "Device"
   Identifier  "modesetting"
   Driver      "modesetting"
So 2 things :
1 - is it the good way to do it ?
2 - Probably the installer needs to take in account that this card doesn't work properly with i915 native mode

yes it is fully recommended to use that driver, it is already the one in development and it works 100%
