Some programs are broken

I installed EndevourOS on my Lenovo Ideapad 5i and it’s giving me some problems with some programs. When I try to open them, they seem to freeze or act strange. These programs include but are not limited to
-mpv Media Player
The EndevourOS quick Installer

Glitches Include quick flashing between two frames and in the case of Kdenlive, thinking I’m selecting something when I didn’t.

Can someone tell me what is going on, and how to fix it? Here’s my neofetch just in case.




Hi @Kono, welcome to the purple space!!

Please post your system logs so that we get more information about your issue:

Welcome to the forum!

Since this is new hardware, I would suggest installing the latest kernel with sudo pacman -Syu linux instead of using the LTS kernel. Let me know if that helps your issue. Also make sure mesa and xf86-video-intel are both installed on your system.

I already had the normal kernel installed on my laptop. As to why I have LTS, well, it’s just a force of habit, since I had tested EndevourOS on older laptops in the past. So I restarted my laptop, made sure I selected the normal kernel instead of the LTS one, and… it still has the problems.

That’s just the hardware info. Try to put the information in code block using backticks like this so that it is more readable:

Also post the boot logs as described in the post

post logs were over the character limit so I hope the link works

Actually, I think a video would help demonstrate my problems

Welcome to the forum, @Kono, nice video!

Did you try running your Plasma desktop on Xorg, instead of Wayland?

Its Xfce, I don’t think it has wayland

Oops, my bad! Don’t even know, how I got that idea!


Try removing the intel driver and rebooting. sudo pacman -R xf86-video-intel

It worked. Now I can play Cave Story… with screen tearing.

I’ve got a question though, was there something I could have done to prevent this? When I installed EndevourOS on my Ideapad for the first time, I installed it with KDE, and then I had to reinstall it with XFCE because the driver made KDE unusable.

Oops, sorry I forgot.


No, it is hit and miss with the intel driver.
