How to reduce screen tearing with my intel integrated graphic?

Post by hunghung » Tue Sep 24, 2019 1:47 pm

I'm a new immigrant from Linux. I don't know how to get hardware information on this OS but I remember I'm using a 4th gen i5 processor. Screen tearing is bad when watching youtube video with HD quality on Iridium. Please help. Linux is somewhat better but the only OS with to tearing at all is Windows.

The 20-intel.conf file I took from MX Linux and put in /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d doesn't work like on MX Linux, video is still tearing. Please help.

The file content is here:
Section "Device"
Identifier "Intel Graphics"
Driver "intel"
# Option "AccelMethod" "uxa" #could also use the default "sna"
Option "TearFree" "true"
EndSection

How old is your intel device? You might need to use modesetting instead of intel drivers also look at /etc/X11/xorg.conf that is the default setting of GhostBSD.

Did you try modesetting instead of intel drivers?
