Thanks!  This worked on my HP 6550p, which is Intel and had horrible screen tearing.  I had been meaning to fix it.  It was nice and easy.

Great stuff, glad it worked for you Steve :)

I always show this method in my videos, well the latest Intel ones. Really clever script it just works, no matter what Linux OS you're running.
Loving Peppermint 10, with all the new features you've added Mark, I really don't know how you can better this OS, but then I said that about 8 and 9, yet you still find something else really cool to add, like the change of icons without changing the icon theme all together, no other OS at least I don't think so does that?  ;D
Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)

Thank you so much for this fix. I'm quite new to linux and hadn't encountered screen tearing until now.

I was pleased that it was fixed so easily thanks to your help.

I really like peppermint 10 and it runs really well on my old lenovo x220. It's definitely a keeper!

Keep up the good work  ;D

I experienced the same thing when I came from Windows to Linux when using Peppermint 8. Never any screen tearing on Windows.

Wellcome to the wonderfull word of Peppermint  Jintymac ;)
