Text fields empty and Buttons in the settings do not work

Unread post by Pentium4User » 2019-06-27, 18:53

Hello!
I use PaleMoon from the repository in Lubuntu 18.04 on different computers.
Only on one (Pentium 4 670, 64 bit, Intel i915) the text fields on password prompts (e.g. for Proxy, Login on FTP servers) are empty, but if I type the password and press enter it works.
In the settings window the buttons for the categories (e.g. General, Tabs, Privacy) the buttons do not work, the content doesn't switch. If I close the settings window and reopen it, it shows the content from the button I clicked before.
I currently have no addons installed and reinstalled Lubuntu 18.04 64 bit today.
Kind regards,
Pentium4User

I'll try that tomorrow evening.
Is there a possibility to fix this without placing another video card inside or use another driver instead of i915?
If you are interested in any system info tell me.
The chipset is the i915G.

The solution for me was to create the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf with root privileges (use sudo).
The content is the following:

Code: Select all

Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
   Driver      "intel"
   Option     "AccelMethod"  "uxa"
EndSection

Code: Select all

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 82915G/GV/910GL Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:2582] (rev 04)
	Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company 82915G/GV/910GL Integrated Graphics Controller [103c:3005]
	Kernel driver in use: i915
	Kernel modules: i915, intelfb
00:02.1 Display controller [0380]: Intel Corporation 82915G Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:2782] (rev 04)
	Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company 82915G Integrated Graphics Controller [103c:3005]
The restart the display manager (or the entire computer).
I got the info from there (German): https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Grafikkarte ... gsprobleme
If you are interested I can translate it.
