Screen Tearing


New Member
everytime i screen record I face screen tearing issue. And somtimes I face this issue when my laptop i ideal. I use Arch Linux KDE with Intel i5 8th Gen CPU and AMD R5 M330 2GB GPU. Need help


Have you installed AMD's open source graphics driver.
I have two solutions that might work. The first one is a bit harder but shouldn't produce a performance hit. Using a text editor of your choosing, open /etc/profile.d/ then proceed to add the line: export KWIN_TRIPLE_BUFFER=1. Check to see if that doesn't solve your issue. If not then try disabling vsync on your driver by using the commands listed on this article on the ArchWiki.
The other method is easier to do but might have a performance hit when doing graphical tasks like gaming. First go to System Settings on KDE, locate Display and Monitor then click on Compositor. Once there go to the Tearing prevention ("vysnc") option in the menu and set it to Full screen repaints.

If all goes well it should eliminate your screen tearing, either method should solve the problem.
