How to improve graphics performance on X11

There are many factors that could be affecting the rendering of widgets under Qt.

A few things you can try in order of importance:-

1. Update your video/graphics driver to the latest. This usually involves downloading a binary installer from your graphics card vendor – e.g. Nvidia and installing this on your Linux box.

2. Run the application using the raster engine. This renders everything in software if you experiencing problems. You can use -graphicssystem raster to do this

3. Make sure your xrender libraries are up to date/installed.
