I can't speak for your particular GPU, but I recently installed the Peppermint 8 Respin on a computer with Intel graphics and the tearing fix still worked on that system.

Nice, glad to hear it's still helping people :)

I really should get round to posting the fix for screen tearing for nvidia prime (nvidia/intel) setups .. where the screen tears badly when the nvidia profile is selected.

I only have a question.. why appears the screen tearing? i think the enterprises like intel or nvidia are sufficient smart to make an solution with a driver update or similar, but, hey, we need 'external' solution like this tutorial or other method to fix it.. I think, that to the intel or nvidia don't care about this problem and doesn't make nothing to fix it..

Thanks PCNetSpec!

I've been trying to ignore the constant screen tearing for so long it seems strange to be without it.  Worked great on my old HP desktop.
Whenever mom would call about computer problems I would find a hammer laying beside the CPU.  She insisted it was for putting jigsaw puzzle pieces together when they didn't seem to fit right.  I think dad buried the computer in the back yard.

New user here, Im having similar issues with screen tearing. Cant scroll down anything without it happening. It would fix itself occasionally but would imminently break again. I was wondering if this process would work on a newer computer (seeing how the post was made back in 2015).

When I typed in "inxi -G" I'd get-

Code: [Select]
 
Graphics:  Card: Intel Device 3185
           Display Server: x11 (X.Org 1.19.6 )
           drivers: modesetting (unloaded: fbdev,vesa)
           Resolution: 1366x768@60.00hz
           OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel UHD Graphics 600 (Geminilake 2x6)
           version: 4.5 Mesa 18.0.5

Have you tried disabling desktop effects ?

And would you know how to TEMPORARILY (for a single boot) test the  i915.alpha_support=1 kernel boot parameter ?
