So I wanted to remove the annoying screen tearing when watching videos and i found the solution where you put 20-intel.conf in your xorg.conf.d dir so I did that. Then after I reboot my device my my desktop settings, xfce panel and other stuff wont work. I tried to launch xfce panel but it says “There is already a running instance” and if I delete the config file and reboot everything goes back to normal.
Well – I know you marked the above as “solution” but I’m sure that it’s going to take a bit for that to make it down to what you’re in fact running. Another try that could work now could be to do instead of the xorg.conf fragment
Here’s someone who had the tearing issue on kernel 5.15 and fixed it by upgrading the kernel. https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=384869
You are likely also on 5.15 (uname -r says) and upgrading seems worth a try. It’s easily done from Manjaro Settings Manager → Kernel. I’d at the moment try 6.0.8-1
I tried upgrading to 6.0.8-1 and it didn’t work. I also found hardware config on Manjaro settings manager where i found the display controller things for my graphics card and tried to install them one at a time and all at once still no results.
Moderator edit: Removed useless, tiny, hard to see screenshot
So I tried what you said there, I also tried to change the Driver to intel and modesetting still nothing, also i panicked when i got stuck on the boot screen but i found out I can still login there by pressing F2. Thanks for your time!!
Seems fairly clear I’m not making anything any better so I’ll leave it at that then
FWIW one of the major things with Wayland as compared to X.org is “definitive” tearfree-ness; can’t say I personally on old AMD experience the problem (but I did some time ago on old Intel and with XFCE indeed) but you’re in any case then not alone. Seems that you could try switching to a Wayland edition of Manjaro (but the XFCE one isn’t) or wait for that modesetting/tearfree one as linked to above to land in Manjaro’s X server.
Yes, all fine; didn’t think you we’re mad or anything. Was just noting that I was really not making anything any better. While a longtime Linux user I’m a new Manjaro user myself and have been none too effective up to now with fix-suggestions. Make sense I guess – you start to recognize issues and solutions by seeing the same problems many times, i.e., only after a good while…
But never mind all that; hope you find a good solution.
