The i3 window manager always has a lot of tearing, especially when scrolling browser pages, PDFs or watching videos. I tried following the ArchWiki tutorial on how to enable TearFree, adding to
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf the following content:
Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics" Driver "intel" Option "TearFree" "true" EndSection
However, after adding this configuration file, Xorg fails to start when logging in, on both i3 and GNOME.
Did someone else have the same problem? How can I fix the tearing?
Thank you, and happy Independence Day for those in the US!
