I installed Manjaro XFCE version but moved to Budgie desktop due to powermangement problems. after that i install CS:GO via steam and everything works fine except one thing, screen tearing. normally i should enable VSync(Vertical Sync) to solve the problem. but even with Tripple Bufferd VSync, theres still screen tearing. i searched a little and found that maybe disabling Composition will solve the problem. but i found that in budgie theres no way to disable Composition because mutter doesnt have this feature. How do i disable Composition or solve screentearing?
Not familiar with Budgie or which compositor it uses, but here’s something you can try on the Nvidia side of things.
sudo to launch
nvidia-settings with administrator privileges.
Then go to X Server Display Configuration and expand the Advanced options.
Under the Advanced settings, enable Force Full Composition Pipeline.
Then click Apply, and next click Save to X Configuration File.
Make sure to save it as
This assumes you’re not using a custom-made
.conf file. Either way, you can always redo or remove any errant files at a later time.
Finally, go to OpenGL Settings and enable Sync to VBlank.
Apply and exit, then reboot.
See if it makes a difference?
Where did you set this? In the game? In Budgie?
@winnie Hi i found the solution you posted here on internet, but unfortunately i don’t have any of this settings on my nvidia-settings. and forum doesnt let me upload a photo of it, i dont know why
I had those settings while i was on xfce, but after switching to budgie, they’re all gone
And yes, i enabled Tripple Bufferd VSync in the game.
Did you follow the part about using
Which version of the Nvidia proprietary drivers are you using?
Yes i used sudo and theres no change , i also tried
sudo , and no change.
i installed nvidia and intel drivers with mhwd , here are installed drivers: https: //file.io/PV95zHfwxiXN
heres a picture of my
nvidia-settings: https: //file.io/rXDuqXpxhCxb
So you’re using hybrid graphics. I have no experience using Nvidia dGPU + Intel iGPU on the same laptop.
What surprises me is how limited
nvidia-settings is for Nvidia Prime users.
Anyone else know if that’s normal?
i’m suprised too
thanks for your help !
yeah this is normal i have prime nvidia / amd and there is like hardly any options in there
i also experienced screen tearing in games like t1m3runn3r2359 , i am using KDE plasma instead though and i managed to resolve my issues by unchecking “allow applications to block compositing” in my settings
