Using Gnome I have terrible lag/stuttering when moving windows around the desktop. Scrolling and mouse pointer selection is also sometimes erratic.
I downloaded the Plasma desktop then enabled “force full composition pipeline” in Nvidia Settings, this resulted in a very smooth desktop experience.
The force composition pipeline does not work with Gnome, in fact it makes it worse.
AMD Phenom ii x4 965
Nvidia Geforce GTX 650ti
Nvidia driver 381.22-1
I have also downgraded to all the available Nvidia drivers with no improvement.
Can’t seem to figure out how to try Nouveau without encountering errors. Although I don’t think this is the best solution as I make use of OpenCL for photo editing.
Any ideas/help much appreciated as I prefer the Gnome environment.
