• Distorted/laggy text, distorted highlight of text


    Hi, I’m not sure if this belongs here, but basically I just installed antergos and everything is working fine so far, except for interface. Text would be distorted, or when I type it will lag and if I delete input it wouldn’t delete on screen it makes the system unusable. I’m thinking its a driver issue? I have a 1070 gpu I tried to install the nvidia drivers through the package, but it didn’t seem to do anything or I don’t know how to use it (sorry first linux distro and still learning how to use os)? Also this is my fist time using linux.

    Here are some pics to show what I mean.

    Also, when I highlight a text (if it’s distorted), if I press alt (maybe another key will do the same) it will repair it. I’m thinking it has something to to with it’s refresh?

    Thank You 🙂
