After trying Gnome, Kde, Cinnamon and Mate I settled with XFCE. It’s the only desktop enviroment that’s not forcing me to reboot several times a day. However, its use of xrender produces stuttering / tearing when playing youtube videos (my laptop uses Intel graphics).
I’ve heard this issue can be solved by using another compositor, e.g. compton or cairo-compmgr. I’ve found instructions for Ubuntu but was wondering if any of you has actually tried it on Arch? Any help would be very appreciated.
