Thread: Update yesterday broke Gnome + Wayland + Bumblebee + external monitor

  1. #1

    Unhappy Update yesterday broke Gnome + Wayland + Bumblebee + external monitor

    I'm using a Dell 5520 laptop with dual graphics and an external monitor, running Tumbleweed with Wayland and Gnome desktop.

    The (months ago) update to Gnome 3.28 caused problems with my external monitor. If plugged in, the laptop screen would be blank and the external screen would be distorted (several skinny pages tiled across the screen and missing pixel rows, like combs). I found work-arounds on the internet and a minor update to Gnome 3.28.1 resolved the problem (though, I had to logon twice).

    Yesterday I updated the system
    Code:
    zypper dup
    and the problem returned, but I can't seem to find a workaround.
    • I can use the computer if I unplug the external monitor
    • I can use the computer if I use a different desktop, like IceWM
    • I can use the computer if I uninstall Bumblebee
    • ...I haven't tried uninstalling Wayland


    Any ideas? I have found nothing about other people having problems after again the update to Gnome 3.28.3, and I'd like to get back to my happy setup.

    Hi
    So what drivers are being used for the external monitor, please post the output from (as your user);
    Code:
    xrandr --listproviders --verbose
    /sbin/lspci -nnk |egrep -A3 "VGA|3D"

    Thanks for offering a hand, malcomlewis!

    I confess, I can't really decipher the output of xrandr --listproviders. Is that listing each of the slices that appear across the screens?

    I suspect this may be related to the other question I had posted where Gnome's desktop configuration tool seems to think the laptop trackpad is a monitor. There are three display ports shown "connected" but I only have one external monitor.


    The output of xrandr --listproviders --verbose is too long, so I pasted it here and included a trimmer version below.

    Hi there,

    Could you please tell us what workarounds have you used?
    In May 15th we had a kernel-source update to 4.16.8, so maybe it's nvidia's kernel module messing your setup.
    If you could plug in your external monitor and use gnome to get some logs. `dmesg > ~/dmesg.log` and journalctl -ab > ~/journal.log`. In case it's not possible take the whole journal `journal -a > ~/journal.log` instead and depending on its size you could you services like https://www.file.io/ .

    Sorry, I realized that I hadn't answered the first question.

    When I had first updated to Gnome 3.28 (end of March?), my laptop screen was blank at the logon prompt. I solved that by disabling Wayland at the prompt. When the screen started tearing (around 8 April?), I found a forum post (sorry, can't seem to find it for reference) saying that a quick fix was in place. I found a pre-release repo and updated to that. It worked. A minor release came out and I moved back to the regular version. When it broke again after Tuesday's update, I started looking for a more permanent fix.

    Yah. It's the Precision 5520 with 4k touchscreen. ...honestly, a mistake. I never use the touchscreen because I can't stand the smudging and the hiDPI just makes everything too small for my old eyes.

    Forget about file.io
    The journal will be enough, I think. Use `journalctl -b 1` after booting with the external screen plugged under wayland and post it at https://paste.opensuse.org please.
