Hey! I was watching anime yesterday and I noticed the screen tears a bit when there is a bit of motion in the anime, and it also happens while scrolling through a webpage. Is there any reason for that, and preferably a solution? It isn’t a deal breaker, but I’d really rather not have that.
are you using a compositor? I believe the default one is picom in endeavour
sudo pacman -Qs picom
I think so; this is the output of the command:
X compositor that may fix tearing
and if you just try to execute it from the terminal with
picom does it say its already running? like this?
[user@Host ~]$ picom [ 2023-02-06 13:04:59.085 session_init FATAL ERROR ] Another composite manager is already running

lspci -k | grep -A 2 -E "(VGA|3D)" to make sure your system is using the right video card drivers.

I think so!
/etc/xdg/picom.conf on lines
219,220 if VSync is enabled or disabled try fillping the option to see if that helps.
as it will overwrite the default config.
Using nvidia I had to enable FullCompositingPipeline option on i3 setups to remove tearing completely.
It’s enabled; I’ll try to disable it to see if it’ll help
Thank you! I’ll try to disable it to see if it’ll help
4. Enhancement avoid screen tearing
so not in the i3 setup for it …on xorg or by the commandline but best in this case is to use the xorg config… /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf
Thanks!! I’ll try that
