I am using Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon (Cinnamon version 5.2.7). Previously I was using kernel 5.13.0-27 and when using the internal display, I would randomly get whole horizontal areas of the screen that would freeze for half a second and then slowly redraw.
Recently I switched to kernel 5.13.0-41. I don’t seem to get the complete freezes, but when doing anything that has a lot of motion (like video or even just moving a window around the screen) I get small little lines all over the screen where it seems to be slightly slow to redraw. This creates a low quality/choppy experience.
Is there a kernel or other setting that is known to work well? Note, I did not install the Edge version of Mint as I didn’t know about the recommendation until recently. I may entertain the idea of installing Edge if I knew for sure it would solve the problem.
Currently, my display settings are:
- Resolution: 2256 x 1504
- Refresh Rate: 60.00 Hz
- Fractional scaling: 125%
- User interface scale: Normal
Your advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
