Intel screen tearing

I had always had screen tearing issues on Linux with Intel graphics.
Surely easily resolved with a X11 configuration, but maybe will it be possible to get some pre-configuration done on Mabox for users ?

A conf file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ with the following content :

#Section “Device”
#Identifier “Intel Graphics”
#Driver “intel”
#Option “TearFree” “true”

Users with intel screen tearing problems would only have to uncomment and reboot to solve their problems… (at least i hope so) :slightly_smiling_face:


Looks like good idea :slight_smile:
Do we have more Intel users here for whom this method works?

It’s not a 100% solving, I mean I’ve read about this issue for more than 10 years including when I supported Manjaro Forum… For a few this worked for others was a partial solution and some changed DE or linux distro which patched this issue for specific Intel laptop models. I have had 5 different Intel graphics laptop systems and this config file worked just for 2 systems. Maybe I am missing some other extra information.

According to some testers there were mixed issues, not just graphics driver issues but also compositor ones…and here we are using Compton.conf (Picom) and this is also conflicting some graphics systems and supporting perfectly other systems.
