After tried all methods in
Intel graphics - ArchWiki, I’m exhausted, but the display tearing/flickering issues still on:

For that you need to remove
xf86-video-intel if is installed.
Not quite sure about that config file. You should only need AFAIK to add
as kernel boot parameters in /etc/default/grub and then run
So you use wayland. Xorg is just a backend here. Therefore I guess your xorg config file will be just ignored.
Try add this to the kernel parameter:
i915.enable_dc=0 i915.enable_fbc=0 i915.enable_psr=0
That will disable power saving methods. Maybe one of these are problematic here.
there are a lot of hardware-news (gamers-nexus etc…) reporting that there are still a lot of issues of the intel-drivers even with ms-windows. in my opinion intel-iris is still in beta and it will take more time until this is a commercial product and to double the problem wayland is used that is imho also still in beta.
Tried, but still not working.
The wired things is when running ubuntu 22.04 (livecd), it works fine. By comparing the grub.cfg, no extra i915 configs found, so what diffs can be ?
More details: The flickering problem not exists all the time, it comes up when I move the cursor to some positions on screen, see this:
Same issue under X11, or only under Wayland?
Wayland. haven’t tested on x11.
Had same problems with irisXe,
here is how I solved the issue:
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
or kate sudoedit /etc/default/grub
Comment out this line:
Add this line instead:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=“quiet splash i915.enable_psr=0”
Save and close your editor
Found the solution here:
[ubuntu] Screen Flickering
No problems since then in any distro I tried!
