(solved) Screen tearing?

PostPosted by FunkyMonkey » Tue May 23, 2017 5:03 am

Hi everyone,

I am new to Linux world. My first distro was Manjaro KDE - I've been running it for the past month without any major problems and loving it.

But I've stumble upon some YT about Archlabs and I loved what I've seen and because I am curious I decided to give it a try.

Trying to make my way through all the tutorials but have problem with "screen tearing" - actually I am not sure what it is cos I never experienced it before.. I've noticed that something is off in the browser (few of them) - during scrolling the middle of the screen (all the way across) is "flickering" it looks like this part of the screen is with some liquid effect.. maybe its refreshing problem, I am really not too sure..

If you could help me out it would be great!

Take a look in ~/.config/compton.conf

and try changing

# Other
#backend = "glx";
backend = "xrender";

use glx rather than xrender
