R4.1 i3 window manager refresh issues

I have just installed R4.1 on a Thinkpad P1 Gen 3 (10th gen Intel i9 with integrated Intel UHD graphics). XFCE4 looks fine, but i3 has serious window region refresh issues. Menus, scrollbars, web pages, and the terminal exhibits artifacts with delayed refresh of sometimes a second or more.

I have also seen this issue (on the same machine) at the crypt LUKS password entry screen on boot. The obscured password entry area behaves similarly to the attached .gif

A fresh install of R4.0.4 and i3 on the same machine does not exhibit these redraw issues.

Can anyone offer advice on how to troubleshoot this?


[Removed comment related to 4.0.4 and put it in post]

  1. Try newer kernel (5.15 or 5.18 with kernel-latest package). If issue still occur, try idea 2.

  2. In dom0, add the following in a new file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf:

    Section "Device"
      Identifier "Intel Graphics"
      Driver "intel"

    Reboot the laptop and check if it fixes the issue.


Adding the 20-intel.conf file worked! Thanks!
