When the failing resize happens I can see the following debug output for KWin: kwin(6595) KWin::Toplevel::createWindowPixmap: Creating window pixmap failed: 'ID: 25166855 '
Comment 2 Martin Flöser 2013-05-09 10:45:36 UTC
Short analysis of what's going on: 1. Window gets resized 2. KWin discards the existing pixmap and schedules a repaint 3. during next repaint a new pixmap is created for the window 4. between creating pixmap and checking the size of the window, the window got resized again (due to ongoing animation) 5. KWin discards the created pixmap 6. Frame gets rendered but there is no pixmap -> flicker Way to fix it: keep the old pixmap around till a new one is created. Wanted to do something like that anyway to have proper cross-fading in the maximize window effect.

Git commit 4824527bcc467f98f7abd8f7eb9ea46b5f3cbf1a by Martin Gräßlin. Committed on 10/05/2013 at 12:07. Pushed by graesslin into branch 'master'. New class to encapsulate a Window's Pixmap The behavior for creating a pixmap for a window is moved from Toplevel into a dedicated class WindowPixmap. Scene::Window holds a reference to this class and creates a new WindowPixmap whenever the pixmap needs to be discarded. In addition it also keeps the old WindowPixmap around for the case that creating the new pixmap fails. The compositor can in that case use the previous pixmap which reduces possible flickering. Also this referencing can be used to improve transition effects like the maximize windows effect which would benefit from starting with the old pixmap. For XRender and OpenGL a dedicated sub-class of the WindowPixmap is created which provides the additional mapping to an XRender picture and OpenGL texture respectively.
