Hello Guix!

NOTE: This email is posted to two different mail lists, due to their
relevance. Please 'reply-all' so that members of both mail lists can
follow up with the discussion.

After GNOME 3.30 update (even after 3.32 update), I started facing
desktop stuttering.

50% of the time, when I play videos in mpv, the video along with whole
desktop system (screen, windows, menus etc.) starts to stutter. 100% of
the time, when I stream videos in ungoogled-chromium, he video along
with whole desktop system (screen, windows, menus etc.) starts to
stutter. During stuttering, I also noticed in system monitor, that
processes ".gnome-shell-ca", ".gnome-shell-r" and ".gnome-system-m"
intermittently hitting 100% CPU.

The above issues does not happen when I log-in as i3-wm session via
gdm. They only happen inside gnome session.

Regards,
RG.

Hello!

I forgot to mention how to reproduce the issue.

1) Set up Guix System using a system configuration similar to
2) Login into gnome-session via gdm.
3) Install and open ungoogled-chromium.
4) Visit for example https://einthusan.ca(can be accessed only from
CA, so may need a VPN server at CA) --> Movies --> Any Language --> Any
Movie. Play the video.
5) You will see desktop stuttering right away or within few minutes.
6) Reboot system.
7) Login into i3-wm session via gdm.
8) Repeat step 3 and 4. You will not encounter desktop stuttering.

Regards,
RG.

Is this still an issue on master? It's been some time since your
original report, and IIUC many improvements were made to the GNOME
desktop.

Thank you!
