Hey guys! After installing Linux Mint 20 on my laptop, which has an Nvidia RTX 2070 card running on the Nvidia chip (performance mode), I noticed the UI on Opera has become sluggish.
It mostly manifests in two scenarios:
- When typing something in the address bar, the suggestions dropdown only opens after a short delay (0.5 sec)
- Same delay when clicking on the "Easy setup" button in the top right (below the X/close button in Opera's title bar)
Of course, these are just minor annoyances, but they make my everyday work feel more sluggish and less responsive overall. I had this happen as well when I tested Manjaro on this laptop a few months ago, and it was part of the reason I moved back to Linux Mint (then 19.3).
Running Nvidia drivers 440, Prime set to Nvidia chip in high performance mode. I tried disabling hardware acceleration in Opera's system settings, and disabling "Override software rendering list" in opera:flags (I normally have that enabled).
Any ideas what might be happening?
