Intel UHD 620 - GL Issues
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Chromium based browsers (Chrome/Vivaldi) and MPV / Steam all not working correctly

https://discuss.getsol.us/d/3718-chrome-vivaldi-issues - much discussed here

Passing --disable-gpu or --use-gl=osmesa managed to get things working but I'm hoping for a permanent solution.

Any info needed let me know.

Try removing xorg-driver-video-intel and rebooting, this will result in it using the modesetting driver. Many distros seem to have abandoned the intel driver.

Some (Debian & Ubuntu, Fedora, KDE) recommend not installing the xf86-video-intel driver, and instead falling back on the modesetting driver for Gen4 and newer GPUs (GMA 3000 from 2006 and newer). See [1], [2], Xorg#Installation, and modesetting(4). However, the modesetting driver can cause problems such as Chromium Issue 370022

Should be fixed now with the latest xorg-server whitelisting older GPUs for the Intel DDX.
