This bug/feature is one of the longest in a linux history. Shortly – Compiz and other managers are providing you great desktop effects. On the other hand you can’t see any movie without screen tearing. Another pathetic moments in a life of linux users 🙂
First of all – google your problem. I bet there are not dozens of users using manjaro with KDE or at least KDE. Ok, my config =
[j@N53SVmanjaro ~]$ uname -a
Linux N53SVmanjaro 220.127.116.11-1-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Dec 19 18:34:00 UTC 2014 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[j@N53SVmanjaro ~]$ konsole -version
KDE Development Platform: 4.14.3
Now just check you „System Settings“ – „Desktop Effects“:
3 tabs after all action can look similar:
As this is a monkey business from my point of view – im simply unchecking all in first two tabs + choosing OpenGL + automatic tearing prevention in 3rd tab.
SMplayer can be set on xv or any other Video driver, playing smoothly…. similar to Windows out-of-box. Yup, this is really lame.
