Go to:-

Menu > Settings > Peppermint Control Center

Select the "Desktop Effects" tab.

Remove the tick from "Enable desktop effects".

Slightly different to fix screen tearing on Peppermint: https://static.afbeeldinguploaden.nl/1807/439104/U0AXQyWT.png

No need to tick off Enable desktop effects.

Sorry for the late reply. I tried PCNetSpec's method and it didn't work. Then I tried Johan's method only to get "Could not save file /usr/share/x11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf.".

Picture attached is exactly what I got from Johan's method (I dont know how to attach images so im using imgur for now.).

The directory you are trying to save the file to its owned by root.
You have to use sudo to be able to save it.

Hi Thriceby5,

I did once come across a weird instance when a file would not save because the directories did not exist. they normally get saved as part of the file save process.

Therefore navigate to the desired directory tree and see if the directory you are trying to save to actually exists.  If not, create it and try to save the file again.

I hope this helps

I think you need to force use of the "intel" driver instead of the "modesetting" driver.

It is a step-by-step process. It's all laid out in the first post of this thread.

Very strange, because I followed the steps described on the image yesterday. Are you sure you typed in exactly the same as displayed, because I got the same error message only to find out I typed hsare instead of share. After I corrected it, it saved without error message and no more screen tearing.

At the end of /usr/share/x11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf there is a . Remove the . after conf and try again. It has to be this: sudo gedit /usr/share/x11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf not this: sudo gedit  /usr/share/x11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf.

@Johan

I suspect your card is using the "intel" drivers, and not the "modesetting" drivers (?)

I guess so, I don't even know what modesetting drivers are ??? Mine is: Intel HD Graphics 620 But I hope he will try to  /usr/share/x11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf without the point after conf ;)

@Thriceby5

Try enabling "Synchronize drawing to the vertical blank" in:-

Menu > Settings > Peppermint Control Center > Desktop Effects (tab)

You may then need to reboot before testing.

This way it worked for me too to fix screen tearing on Pepp 10. And much quicker than the one I used before. So thanks Mark 8)
