Ubuntu – Budgie 17.10 garbled display


After a fresh install of Budgie 17.10 on an ASUS Eee PC 900HA netbook, when the PC boots up the left 3/4 of the display is garbled while the right 1/4 is fine. Since I can see the right side of the top bar I can select Suspend and after suspending and a resume the display is fine. This is consistent behaviour. Is there some sort of timing issue on bootup?

Best Answer

  • My eee PC 900HA has Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS.
    And I solved it with this purely physical solution:

    1. Turn on the computer by pressing the power button.
    2. Quickly close the lid.
    3. Wait for the leftmost green led to start blinking. Power led next to it will also be lit.
    4. Open the lid and tap the power button to wake up the computer.
    5. After a minute or so, the unscrambled clean screen appears.
