on Arch Linux on my desktop and t420s too

tried Blender from official pacman repo and Steam version

There is a similar bug report (that I’m too lazy to go look for) which suggests problems with the video driver. You didn’t mention driver & card but updating your video driver might be a good thing.

If you do file a bug report, try using official Blender from blender.org first.

problems with the video driver

On both machines??


on Arch Linux — everything is up to date!

Official pacman repo - having enough amount of trust, so no needs to recompile Blender by myself, I guess
