Fedora 23 and screen tearing- 1 min
As I mentioned in my Fedora 23 review, I am very happy with this new release. So, I was a bit disappointed when I notice the issue with screen tearing. Now this is probably an issue with my particular set up and a lot of people may not run into this issue.
I have an Acer Aspire V5 with an integrated Intel HD 4400 and nVidia GT 750M and I use bumblebee for dynamic switching. So, by default the system runs on the Intel card. I noticed that when I move any window there is some tear. Naturally, I went on google looking for a fix for the issue. And I found this post on Ask Fedora. Basically the fix is to create the file
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf and have the below content in it:
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics" Driver "intel" Option "AccelMethod" "sna" Option "TearFree" "true" EndSection
And then reboot! The issue should be fixed.
