Shutdown - Weird Display Output

Hello everyone,

I am not sure where to post this. This is mainly due to the fact that I do not have any idea for where to look for a cause of this phenomena.

From time to time, when I shutdown my system, my display gets this little colorful treatment before the system actually shuts down and the screen goes black.

That is what it looks like:

Any idea what might cause this to happen? Is it a driver issue?

Thanks a lot in advance!

You are in the right place.

I'm sure is not happening due to the path of Venus. :stuck_out_tongue:

A bit speculative, but is a possibility.
In order to start investigating objectively, we need from terminal:
inxi -Fxxxza --no-host

Hello @bogdancovaciu,

thank you for your reply.

If I am not mistaken, inxi is some sort of tool to display system information. Using inxi -Fxxxza --no-host displays a lot of system information. What information is of special interest? Or, put differently, why are you suggesting to call inxi with these specific options? I am just curious and want to understand what I am doing.

This command displays an environmental variable right? For me echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE displays: X11

What strikes me is that this weird bug does not occur every time I shut down my system.

Thanks again!

It's a customary procedure on this support forum so that somebody willing to assist has some good information about your hardware and system.

@knome Sure thing. I was just curious. I would have provided some more information in my first post. I just did not know what information is useful for the issue at hand.

Here is the output from inxi -Fxxxza --no-host
