View Full Version : [kde] nvidia and screen tearing

January 26th, 2013, 11:12 PM
I've been struggling with screen tearing for as long as I can remember. At one point I heard that this was supposedly an nvidia problem, so I bought a Radeon card. Even then I had the very same problem. The driver support (catalyst) is so bad, so I bought a new nvidia card.
I'm currently using a KDE 4 desktop (kubuntu 12.10). I've enabled opengl v2 shaders + vsync (enabled as default). Also, in the nvidia x server settings, I've enabled sync to vblank + flipping.
