#2070 new defect

Slow repaint of xfce4-terminal

Reported by: maverick Owned by: maverick
Priority: major Milestone: 2.5
Component: client Version: 2.4.x
Keywords: MacOS Cc:

Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

Using xpra client 2.4.2 64-bit revision r21077 on MacOS Mojave to connect to xpra session on Ubuntu 18.04 running 2.2.6-r18968.

  1. I notice that xfe4-terminal opened in the xpra session often repaints very slowly resulting horizontal streaks in the xfce4-terminal window ONLY. The streaks show portions of the window behind the xfce4-terminal. I do not see this behavior with other app windows (I have Eclipse and Emacs windows open).

Is this known? Is it because of the different versions of xpra being used on the server and client side? Is there a setting that addresses this behavior?

  1. I notice that the option "Features -> Control/Command Key Swap" is greyed out in the xpra client. Is there any way I can enable it?

Thanks for any help/suggestion to address these issues (particularly no 1).

Please try to reproduce the problem with a supported server version, the version provided by Ubuntu is buggy and insecure (details here: wiki/Packaging/DistributionPackages)

For some strange reason, some terminals use transparent windows, which could cause the problems you describe if the alpha channel is not forwarded properly somehow.
Can you attach a screenshot?
Do you have opengl enabled in the client?
You may be able to fix that by starting the xpra server with:

XPRA_ALPHA=0 xpra start ...

The python3 builds may work better when it comes to handling transparency.

As for the swap-keys menu entry, this sounds like a bug.
Can you post the output of the client running with -d menu?

Thanks for your reply.

My attempt to install a supported server failed as follows:

W: GPG error: https://xpra.org bionic InRelease: The following signatures were invalid: EXPKEYSIG 18ADB31CF18AD6BB Antoine Martin <antoine@nagafix.co.uk>
E: The repository 'https://xpra.org bionic InRelease' is not signed.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.

Thanks! Update worked. Now I am running xpra v2.4.2-r21077 (server) on my Ubuntu box.

I still see the slow repaint issue - a bit less frequent though. I did have OpenGL enabled (just let the default on). I turned it off but it made no difference. What is the recommended selection for OpenGL? Should I enable it or not?

I do not seem to experience the problem when I start xpra with XPRA_ALPHA=0. Is this what you'd recommend I use to start the server?

Here is the output of client you asked for:

/Applications/Xpra.app/Contents/MacOS/Xpra -d menu

Default should be fine.

No, we should fix the bug instead, but since I can't reproduce it, that could be difficult.

Here is the output of client you asked for:

Sorry, I meant -d menu as well as the rest of the attach command:

xpra attach -d menu tcp://host:port

(or whatever connection string you use)

Started the server without setting XPRA_ALPHA.

This is a known issue with GTK, nothing to worry about.

Replying to Antoine Martin:

Looks like I did not :-(

None of the menu debug output is present.

My sincere apologies. Here is the (hopefully) correct output:

Looks like it thinks that there is no keyboard support, which is why the menu entry is disabled:

2018-12-06 17:04:18,998 set_swapkeys_menuitem(()) no keyboard!

Lemme fix that.

Thanks for the quick turn around. Really appreciate it.

I can confirm that this version fixes the greyed out swap key option in the menu.

W.r.t slow refresh, is the recommendation to use XPRA_ALPHA=0? Is there anything that I can try or provide a log of? Also, I notice you suggested that I use Python3 package. I do not see a 21184 version of Python3 package.

W.r.t slow refresh, is the recommendation to use XPRA_ALPHA=0?

No, turning off alpha only prevents the repaint problems with transparency.

The slowness could be explained by a VTE "feature" if xfce4-terminal also uses it, see ticket:2049#comment:5.

Is there anything that I can try or provide a log of?

See the ticket link above, this could help to confirm that the slowness problem is caused by VTE.

Also, I notice you suggested that I use Python3 package. I do not see a 21184 version of Python3 package.

There is now a GTK3 build too. Worth a try.

It appears that turning off Features -> OpenGL in the MacOS client has minimized the slow repaint.

That's unexpected.
The opengl backend is supposed to be much quicker than plain GTK, even on a low power GPU.
The only recent change that could have caused a performance regression is r20541. You could try any builds older than that date: 09/28/18 16:29:02 (2 months ago).

Replying to Antoine Martin:

I guess I was a bit too hopeful - a bit too soon :-) It does not make any difference.

Additionally, if adds anything, the speed of network does not seem to have any bearing on this behavior.

I tried https://xpra.org/beta/MacOS/x86_64/Xpra-x86_64-2.4-r20510.dmg (2018-09-23). I experience the same behavior of patchy repaint of xfce4-terminal. gnome-terminal also exhibits the same issue.
