I3wm black screen on waking from suspend, with picom active

Hi has anyone found a solution to my problem?

If I have picom active when the laptop wakes from sleep/suspend the screen is blank.

With picom inactive it wakes up normally.

I have had a look around but have not found a fix.

CPU: Dual Core Intel Core i7-4600U (-MT MCP-) speed/min/max: 2694/800/3300 MHz Kernel: 5.14.11-arch1-1 x86_64 Up: 5h 13m
Mem: 1518.0/15909.3 MiB (9.5%) Storage: 1.6 TiB (2.8% used) Procs: 199 Shell: Bash inxi: 3.3.06

Thanks DH

tried --experimental-backends for picom?

Hi, thanks for getting back to me. I did not know there was such a thing are there any docs on it?

My bad - I found it testing now :slight_smile:

Unfortunately that did not work.

I will have a better look to see if I can find a fix.

Just have to balance that and my job LOL

I see also diffefence with current kernel or linux-lts … try xcompmgr?

Okay thank you, the xcompmgr seems to have worked for me with the current kernel.
