Has anyone experienced something like this?

It happened after the last update a couple of days ago, and only seems to affect the Flatpak versions of Zoom, Teams and degoogled-chromium. The AUR packages of those apps don’t show this issue.

This happened on a Wayland session, but, to my surprise, after switching to a X11 session these apps still showed the same issue.

The system is up to date, with GNOME 43.1 and Mesa 22.2.3 (updated from 22.2.1 in the last update). I have an AMD GPU. There are other Mesa-related packages in flatpak:

Mesa	org.freedesktop.Platform.GL.default	21.3.9	21.08	system
Mesa	org.freedesktop.Platform.GL.default	22.1.7	22.08	system

not a general issue… just checked on my GNOME using AMD GPU but its older one using Radeon driver so could be AMDGPU and Mesa that causing this… saw also that zoom shows as using outdated display service or something on gnome-software app could be that… causing interference between system and flatpaks…

Do you set anything GPU driver related in boot kernel line or xorg configs?
I see it can help a lot in cases.

@joekamprad @pebcak Thanks for the feedback! It must be something specific to my system, then.

Never did that, but I might look into it. Thanks for the suggestion.

@pebcak BTW, what command did you use to show the CPU and graphics info in that format? Edit: Never mind, it’s inxi, right?

I see that same pattern on my screen in some apps when I kill picom. When I move my mouse over it the window refreshes and it fixes it self. So it may be compositor related
