Description Lorenzo Salvadore 2019-08-25 10:52:37 UTC
On older hardwares or systems where hardware acceleration has not been configured correctly the browser shows videos with wrong colors. This patch adds in pkg-message the suggestion to disable hardware acceleration through the --disable-gpu option. Testing is needed to verify that the option works. See bug #237277.

Created attachment 206889 [details] qutebrowser --disable-gpu
Comment 2 Roman Bogorodskiy 2019-08-25 11:52:47 UTC
(In reply to Lorenzo Salvadore from comment #0) Thanks for reporting this. However, there seem to be no '--disable-gpu' flag for qutebrowser: qutebrowser: error: unrecognized arguments: --disable-gpu Probably the right equivalent is 'qutebrowser --qt-flag disable-gpu', though I see no difference on my system. I guess I'll need to confirm with qutebrowser if that's the right way to disable hardware acceleration.

Created attachment 206892 [details] qutebrowser --qt-flag disable-gpu Thanks for feeback. I updated the patch by replacing --disable-gpu with the --qt-flag disable-gpu option.
Comment 4 Roman Bogorodskiy 2019-08-25 12:20:17 UTC
Created attachment 206893 [details] adds qutebrowser option Upstream configured that 'qt-flag disable-gpu' should work fine. Also updated with the info about configuration settings. Please take a look.
