Re: How to fix screen tearing in LXQt?

Just an update on what I did. I gave up trying to make LXQt tear free, and instead moved to the newest 64-bit MATE version of Porteus, and I must say it's great! Looks really nice with the custom theme, it's faster then the old one and the browsers more up to date. Compton also works great. So I am ...

Re: How to fix screen tearing in LXQt?

Can you specify if tearing appears only on videos or 3D apps or all apps? Also, please consider moving to Porteus 3.2.1 as version 3.1 is 2 years old. I've made a LXQt module for this current version, and with Nvidia driver I've managed to avoid tearing on all fullscreen apps -- there's just a litt...

Re: How to fix screen tearing in LXQt?

What is the nvidia card model that you have? Its an Nvidia 9300 GE. I am using Linux on an older machine, so the components are pretty outdated, but I tried it on my newer one with a GTX 750 TI and it's the same problem. I have to say though that I managed to fix tearing on XFCE, and MATE, so the g...

Re: How to fix screen tearing in LXQt?

I asume that you are on the 64 bit architecture. Did you tried one of these two drivers built for porteus: https://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/dl.porteus.org/x86_64/current/drivers/ I'm actually on 32 bit. I will try the drivers from the i486 directory and see if it works. I will let you know how it goes!

How to fix screen tearing in LXQt?

I can't find a way to fix the screen tearing while using this GUI. On Xfce4 it's easy, I just use compton, but on LXQt, downloading compton and setting it to autostart doesnt do anything. I used the same autostart command like on XFCE, is that the problem? So what should I do, can anyone help? I lik...
