Resolve display flicker on the InfinityBook Pro 14 Gen6 by tuxedo

The guide by tuxedo tells you how to disable `PSR` which stands for panel-self-refresh.

But psr is a very useful feature to conserve.

Thanks to the reddit user 909876b4-cf8c I went down the rabbit hole to figure out what tuxedos custom solution actually does. They force psr version 1. link

I'm booting with i915.enable_psr=0

And after calling $ echo 0x3 > /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_edp_psr_debug

my display is still working fine and psr is enabled

cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_edp_psr_status 
Sink support: yes [0x03]
PSR mode: PSR1 enabled
Source PSR ctl: enabled [0x81f00ee6]
Source PSR status: IDLE [0x04010000]
Busy frontbuffer bits: 0x00000000

Optional: For a flicker free experience follow the guide in to add the kernel parameter `i915.enable_psr=0`

The actual fix

Create a systemd unit file to enable psr version 1.

$sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/infinitybook_psr_fix.service

# ---
ExecStart=bash -c 'echo 0x3 > /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_edp_psr_debug'
# If doesn't work for you
# ---

$sudo systemctl daemon-reload
$sudo systemctl enable infinitybook_psr_fix.service
$sudo systemctl start infinitybook_psr_fix.service

# Confirm that it worked by calling 
sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_edp_psr_status 

This fix might resolve the screen flickering for all HDPI displays on Alder Lake (12th gen Intel)

Pop!_OS (nvidia) on the InfinityBook Pro 14 Gen6 by tuxedo

Summary of what I did.

Added the kernel parameter i915.enable_psr=0 using sudo kernelstub -a i915.enable_psr=0 to resolve the screen flicker issue. Even better:


  • tuxedo-control-center
  • tuxedo-keyboard
  • tuxedo-touchpad-switch (touchpad-led support – also add to startup applications)
  • tuxedo-pinfix-tgl-dkms (not sure if required)

For power tuning, I installed tlp and mostly adjusted

/etc/tlp.conf L0319: RUNTIME_PM_DRIVER_BLACKLIST="" so that runtime_pm is enabled for the nvidia card (it sometimes turned on [maybe after sleep]).

As the touchpad sometimes stops to work (mostly on login), I created a simple script that fixes the issue.

sudo rmmod i2c_hid_acpi
sudo modprobe i2c_hid_acpi

Maybe: set deep sleep: (I didn’t do that because the Nvidia card wakes up after standby)

sudo kernelstub -a "mem_sleep_default=deep"

Accelerated video playback.

I failed to get va-api working with firefox (seems to be a known bug), but chrome is working fine following the arch wiki or

For some reason `vdpau-va-driver_0.7.4-7_amd64.deb` is missing from the ubuntu repos. You can simply install it from here (debian). It enables va-api with nvidia.

[not required after 22.04] I also installed with wireplumber.

WARNING: OPAL boot currently doesn’t work, as the SSD is power cycled on reboot.
