sudo apt install --reinstall gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons
And then logging out and back in seems like it has fixed it for me at least temporarily.
Certainly seems to be extensions related and the desktop-icons one seems to be the culprit. Similar issue / resolution as After upgrading to Ubuntu 19.10 I see issues when resizing windows or dragging ...
I've been noticing this as well ever since I installed spicetify. I'm also at a loss as to what's causing it, but as a workaround, I've found that I'm able to force it to load by running sudo spicetify apply but this is a bit inconvenient to do every time you launch the client.

The problem is apparently caused by the swapping and disk writes in general. I found my solution by manually downgrading to kernel 5.2.21 from https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/
I'm now running it second day without problems. Micro freezes are gone and system is generally more responsive.
It looks like there's no driver used. The *-display section is marked as UNCLAIMED, in short meaning "I couldn't find a fitting driver for this". There can be multiple *-display sections, for example if the machine has multiple graphic cards. Maybe you're looking at the wrong one?
I have the identical setup referenced.
I had this blurring problem and traced it to enabling FXAA in Nvidia settings. Originally I enabled this feature out of curiosity and noticed no difference. I then forgot about it. Yesterday I applied available updates and suddenly this blurring problem presented. After much futile struggle, I recalled fiddling with ...
I discovered that when installing the drivers, it asks for a password for secure boot. After rebooting Ubuntu, you need to enrol the MOK. If you don't do the enrolment, then Ubuntu will still boot but not with the Nvidia drivers. So it will use the default driver.
The only way to that is to reinstall, and while the installation process, make sure to check the box "Install third-party drivers for sound and others" so your drivers will work again with your Ubuntu installation.
have you tried Wayland?
Log-off and change the desktop to 'Ubuntu (Wayland)' or something like that.
I had a few bugs that were similar to what you are experiencing with screen tearing as well, and changing it to Wayland fixed it for me.
Maybe it was something else I changed, but after I switched to Wayland, it got fixed.
Give it a try and tell me if it ...
I had a raft of these problem with nvidia-340 diverts in Ubuntu 19.10; it seems to be a known bug with Ubuntu. package libnvidia-gl-390 (not installed) failed to install/upgrade: new libnvidia-gl-390:amd64 package pre-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 2 (NOT FIXED)
The workaround I did was #5, Yuri's improvement of Alexandre's ...
Well I found ubuntu drivers for my graphics card at https://www.amd.com/en/support and after installing them it made a big difference. Not 100% perfect, but 90% better. Hooray for those that make linux drivers.
Well, this is pretty awkward! I remembered the Composition tab in System Settings > Display and Monitor > Compositor and changed the rendering backend from OpenGL 2.0 to OpenGL 3.1. Did a reboot, and everything works as intended with nVidia drivers! Screen 1 Screen 2
Pretty embarassing, but I hope this helps someone out there!
Welp i found the culprit, i somehow fycked up my first ubuntu install by not allowing a swapping space big enough , by doing so followed a random tuto to start with the "nomodeset" in recovery mode , thus making it kinda work but only in recovery , but deactivacting the graphic card options and making it impossible for sofwares to get a proper acces to it , ...
If Vanadium's solution is not effective, it could be a hardware fault between the screen and the graphics adapter circuit on the laptop motherboard. If the ribbon cable which connects the two is unfastened, disconnected, reconnected, and refastened, that has solved the problem in other Dell laptops as well as other makes.
Since there are literally a dozen ...
This is not screen tearing, these are quite severe graphical glitches, which you may find occur more frequently when on battery power. This is probably related to a more recent type of Intel graphics in that laptop, and the kernel mode drivers still need to catchup.
See whether adding i915.enable_psr=0 to your kernel boot line helps. For how to add that ...
You can find the release notes for all Nvidia drivers HERE
Just enter your info in the drop down menus and search, it will return all Nvidia drivers still in service. If you select the driver version it will bring up a new page and give you 3 tabs. The first will tell you what has changed since the last release. The second tab will give you a list of ...
After a full day of bisecting the difference between a new install and my setup of Ubuntu dating back over a decade, I finally found the culprit, cairo-dock.
cairo-dock is corrupting the graphics of not just Sidequest, but also Steam, and presumably anything else that renders in the same way.
cairo-dock has the ability to start up with the opengl backend ...
This worked for me:
$ sudo apt install --reinstall nvidia-driver-435
$ sudo apt install --reinstall nvidia-dkms-435
If a different driver number is used, replace 435 with it. I don't know if the first step is strictly necessary, but I performed it anyway.
