Graphical distortions make some menus unreadable

Hamburger menu is unusable in some Libadwaita (Flatpak) applications on a fresh install of Z16 Core.
This install is on an AMD Ryzen 3 3200g with integrated graphics.


I am up to date with updates. So far, only these two applications have this issue. Haven't observed this in any other application. Unsure how I can fix this.

Why are you using Libadwaita, it's for the updated Gnome not the one installed in Zorin. Not really sure how using that through Flatpak is a good idea either.

I need the applications. Is there an option to install them without Libadwaita?
Flatpak comes preconfigured in Zorin. Are users not supposed to use it?

Has nothing to do with using or not using Flatpak

Libadwaita is for the new version of Gnome, of which you don't have on your system yet. You're missing libraries that it needs to function properly. And no you can not just add the new version of Gnome to your system.

If the apps are Flatpaks, then they will bring libadwaita and other gnome 4+ elements with them.

This looks very similar to an issue with Graphics drivers that @seanhinkley recently helped us to examine.

@greyhound , are you using Nvidia Graphics?

I think it's Intel integrated

No, integrated GPU in Ryzen CPU.

It is amazing how often I miss the obvious in an O.P.

Can you try:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/updates

sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade

Reboot and test...

Tried that. No difference.

And Oibaf has dropped support for Focal Fossa.

Except, instead of using .bash_profile, use your home .profile file.
