Re: font corruption and desktop trashed.

Insofar as I have been able to tell this is a kernel issue as I originally suspected. More specifically it appears to be the buggy nouveau driver. It seems that with anything more recent than 5.3.* kernels I have no valid options for video drivers. I'm currently booting to 5.3.12-300.fc31.x86_64 whi...

Re: Is this forum dead now ?

thanks for your comment and for your many replies to my questions here in the past. And in the end it's always up to OP to apply things to their own machine - and mark a thread resolved. I think I have always applied suggestions which are pertinent to the problem and marked issues resolved when they...

Thanks. Is there a bug reporting system elsewhere, where I can raise issues?

Is this forum dead now ?

I posted a couple of questions here in the last two months and they did not get resolved. I see one is still in the top five most recent ! Traffic here seems sadly low scale. Is this forum effectively dead now? Is there anywhere more active for LXDE support questions ? This is really no longer viabl...

Re: font corruption and desktop trashed.

This does not get better. I tried QtDesktop and it has the same issues. Now if I open LibreOffice writer and open a one page document I get video and font trashing. I can no longer print anything because the print dialogue is illegible. I ran memtest86+ overnight to check it was not a faultly sectio...

Re: font corruption and desktop trashed.

LXterminal gets hit: exiting window content and any new output gets trashed. LibreOffice spreadsheet content often gets trashed. on the other han...

Re: font corruption and desktop trashed.

Many thanks Edward. I tried setting the theme via the menu on the desktop rather than via the Fedora menu and it is now working without screwing everything up. I changed from Clearview to Clearview3.4 and all seems OK. I have not tried going back by the same method, so I have not determined whether ...

Re: font corruption and desktop trashed.

Thanks for that info. Since I will soon need to move to F32, it looks like I need to resolve this fairly soon. When I said kernel related, that could be explained by kernel modules. I also have an onboard NVidia and I have to use nouveau since the proprietory drivers don't support this older GPU any...
