Wallpaper issue after bootup

The wallpaper does not load properly on bootup. (It’s stripped on the right and there is a different layer underneath). I use a secondary screen as my main screen. Laptop screen is disabled.

System info:

Shell: bash 5.1.8
DE: KDE 5.87.0 / Plasma 5.23.2
WM: KWin
CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS with Radeon Graphics @ 16x 3GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 with Max-Q Design

can you share screenshot?
You was talking about default EndeavourOS Wallpaper or any ?

It stays like this for couple of seconds than it goes back to normal. It happens pretty frequently after each boot.

widescreen …
do you have setup the wallpaper with plasma setting or from EndeavourOS welcome tool?

I have downloaded the pics from the welcome tool and moved them to the respective folder. Thanks.

I’ve had the problem before on a distro, I can’t remember which though and I forget what desktop environment. Wasn’t EndeavourOS though. No matter what I did I couldn’t get it to work properly. I have two 43" 4K displays and I eventually gave up and wound up on EndeavourOS w/ Cinnamon.

Were you running KDE on Nvidia too?

I am not clear on what exactly is occurring in this case. I saw the screenshot - but is this only momentary (ie: 1 sec or so?). And - is this on a separate monitor?

I have a ‘glitch’ on loading as well, but have never worried about it as it behaves from then on without issue. Factors that appear to matter include:

  1. whether your display manager is set to load a background, or the same background
  2. whether the scaling for the secondary screen is the same as the main monitor
  3. whether the rotation is the same for the secondary monitor.
  4. whether the background for the secondary monitor is the same as the main one, or a variation

It could probably be tracked down, or modified by working through all the above points… but does it matter if it clears that immediately?

I hope some of this may have SOME relevance to your situation… I have been known to miss the point before! :grin:
