KDE4's Blur plugin problem
Hi, I found today that blur plugin in kde4 causes problems with performance and makes black screen when swtiching virtual desktop or using dekstop grind plugin. When i turned it off my KDE runs much much faster with compositing effects. I'm not sure if it's Nvidia's driver problem or Kwin's, but i'm reporting about it here and on kde's bugs site.

Please provide a nvidia bug report created after the problem occured, and give more detailed information on how to reproduce (versions and steps)

Yeah there is something weird with blur. It also causes the entire screen to shift up 1 pixel (but not the mouse pointer of course). I don't have any non-nVidia machines so I can't compare...

Re: KDE4's Blur plugin problem
That bug is known on bugs.kde.org. I'm using the latest beta drivers. Xorg.conf configuerd using nvidia-xconfig, added some lines like this:


Section "Device"
    Identifier    "Device[0]"
    Driver        "nvidia"
    VendorName    "NVidia"
    BoardName      "GeForec 7600GS"
    Option        "RenderAccel" "true"
    Option        "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "true"
    Option        "AllowSHMPixmaps" "0"


Section "Screen"
    Identifier    "Screen[0]"
    Device        "Device[0]"
    Monitor        "Monitor[0]"
    Option "PixmapCacheSize" "20000000"
    Option "AllowSHMPixmaps" "0"
    SubSection    "Display"
        Modes      "default"

After xserver started i did:

nvidia-settings -a InitialPixmapPlacement=2 -a GlyphCache=1
All efects works fine. Just blur makes a crapy lines on desktop and a black screen when switching virtual desk. Even scalling the konsole window when blur is on makes it slooooow.

Re: KDE4's Blur plugin problem

This one. As the thread title suggests, you should read this first when you have a problem.

A nvidia bug report is a plain text file created with the nvidia-bug-report.sh script, containing lots of usefull information (module versions, full Xorg configuration and log, device information, logs of nvidia related errors ...) which helps nvidia to reproduce and solve your problem.

Re: KDE4's Blur plugin problem
Errr, please just attach the log file to a post here, even if you have to gzip it first. Do not send people to a site that they can't actually download your file from without first waiting in a queue, or spending money.
