[SOLVED] Possible screen tearing

Hi could this be screen tearing? I've noticed screen tearing before but more with video games and scenes not being aligned where this seems slightly different.

Yeah that's screen tearing and pretty harsh too. You might try disabling compositing before you attempt to watch a video on the web or whatever and see if that helps.

Re: [SOLVED] Possible screen tearing

It was when scrolling down fast on a webpage. I can't remember if i had this before with #!, and if it was a graphical package i needed to down load.

Re: [SOLVED] Possible screen tearing

Try this:

sudo -i
cat > /etc/X11/xorg.conf << "EOF"
Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
   Driver      "intel"
   Option      "AccelMethod"  "uxa"
EndSection
EOF
exit

Then reboot.

If there is no improvement, delete the file at /etc/X11/xorg.conf
