Subject: Various X problems
On Buster, I use brltty in a terminal, mate-terminal. I use screen in this terminal. Here is the command I run:
brltty -b ba -x a2 -X type=term --release-device
When I use the cut-and-paste command of brltty, it works all right, but randomly and for whatever reason, X crashes. I pasted the log here:
Ih this log, several things make me surprised:
- the log is polluted by (EE) related to offsetting. What is this? If related to
should I report to Debian so that we disable PageFlip by default?
- the crash appears, definitely
Finally, maybe it is related, I use this script to make my screen black and my screen no longer becomes black. More precisely, to make it black, after running the script, I have to do alt-ctrl-f1 and alt-f7.
See the script: http://paste.debian.net/1037524
- what can I investigate furthermore?
- should I report a bug and where? I planned to do on Xorg, but last time I had no feedback on Debian bts. And upstream requested things I did not know to do in Debian.
I dont know wether this topics are linked, but I suspect there is a relationship between all these problems, and as I experience them via brltty cut-and-paste feature, I prefer to ask here first.
Thanks for your help and feedback.
