Ever since I updated to the new Xubuntu version (16) I have two behaviours:
sometimes I have to switch tty after unlocking the Laptop to make my mouse cursor appear again. I heard it is related to the Intel driver and that it might get fixed in a later version, so I'm hoping for that. The workaround of switching ttys is ok though.
This is the reason I created this question. After unlocking I sometimes run into the scenario of disappearing text elements in some of my application windows. Most applications are effected (thunderbird, terminal), others (Chrome, Virtualbox) are not. The problem looks like this: Missing text
Are these two issues related to one another? What I tried so far was:
refreshing fonts cache: fc-cache -f -v
restarting the window manager: xfwm4 --replace
sudo restart lightdm
Problem is: I can't see if the commands show errors, since the output of the terminal is corrupted as well. Does anyone have an idea where to look for a solution to this?
Thanks a lot! :)
