Discussion in 'Linux' started by Deleted member 1019137, May 10, 2018.

    [For Xubuntu XFCE, or Ubuntu] (Not sure if this works for Ubuntu or other based Ubuntu-DE's.. you can try it)

    Open Terminal and type: " sudo mkdir -p /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ "

    -> Typ your password to confirm!

    -> After creating that Folder in X11, again open Terminal and add this line: " sudo mousepad /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf " and hit Enter..

    -> Copy and paste there that Configuration:

    Section "Device"

    Identifier "Intel Graphics"

    Driver "intel"

    Option "TearFree" "true"

    EndSection

    [WARNING!]
    Can lower the Performance and uses more RAM..

    -> Save that and exit your text editor, and restart your X11 session.

    [For Linux Mint - Cinammon and XFCE]

    -> Open Terminal and type: " gksudo xed /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf "

    -> Type or Copy and Paste the following line in the empty file that opens up:

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Intel Graphics"
    Driver "intel"
    Option "TearFree" "true"
    Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
    EndSection

    -> Save the file by clicking on 'File' and then click on 'Save' and then Reboot your system.

    [WARNING!] can maybe lower the Performance or uses more RAM! ..
