      Description

      There are serious graphical issues with OpenGL-accellerated QtQuick applications in KDE Plasma on Intel HD Graphics 4000.

      Menu and tooltip backgrounds are transparent, looking crazy and making the text very hard to read. I have seen this bug in least the following applications:

      • Elisa
      • Discover
      • Several system settings modules (e. g. kcm_style)
      • Plasma start menu

      Each time when triggering an affected action (e. g. the hamburger menu of Elisa), there is huge console output about failed shader compilation; lots of source code gets dumped.

      More applications are affected with problems that seem related:

      • systemsettings / users kcm: avatar selector does not show the images
      • plasma-systemmonitor: graphs are not visible, the application is extremely slow and already froze the whole system once
      • overview effect shows empty fields instead of desktop previews

      These issues disappear when setting the environment variable LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1.

      I have already contacted KDE developers, who think this is most likely an issue with Qt.

      Screenshots and passages of console output are attached.
