• [Solved] Screen tearing after installation ( KDE 5.7 / Nvidia )


    hello, I’ve selected nvidia drivers on the installation. I’m on kde and there is screen tearing.

    I played with parameters in the compositor but nothing changed .

  • this

    nvidia-settings --assign CurrentMetaMode="nvidia-auto-select +0+0 { ForceFullCompositionPipeline = On }"
    

    solve the problem temporary

  • sorry about that, with my graphic card, opengl 3.1 and EGL seems to solve the problem

  • again it’s me :cat:

    I follow this guide http://www.thelinuxrain.com/articles/got-tearing-with-proprietary-nvidia-try-this

    but the option in xorg.conf don’t allow me to access display I did tty2 to remove the option in xorg.conf

  • what to do FIRST

    Option “TripleBuffer” “True”

    in screen section.

  • Create a file in /etc/profile.d called kwin.sh
    Inside that file put the following:
    export __GL_YIELD=“USLEEP”

    Make the file executable and reboot. That should fix the tearing issue and does not have the overhead that triple buffering does. This is typically the first solution to try. If this does not work then try triple buffering.

    hi,

    I add this line and now it’s gone completely. Thank you.

  • You are very welcome!

  • @bmeister I need to try this too thanky you! I have tearing as well and apparently nVidia is just blaming it on an Xorg limitation… So I guess if they’re going to fix it then it will be in Wayland, however they are battling over what approach to take since they want to use EGL streams
