Screen tearing is something like a repeating benchmark in various window managers. I can´t imagine something more annoying in a software field, really! Recently I found extremely valuable distribution ArchLabs – so let´s review screen tearing resolving within Openbox WM.
First of all, two facts:
A) I have just Intel Haskell built-in graphic „card“, so no need to worry about nVidia drivers at all.
ArchLabs is brought configured to some point, making any experience near-working out-of-the-box. Don´t ask me why setup few variables in one file is such a problem.
Target file =
backend = "glx";
paint-on-overlay = true;
glx-no-stencil = true;
glx-no-rebind-pixmap = true;
vsync = "opengl-swc";
Just check if there is no different value, in my case I just needed to uncomment and make very tiny changes.
Reboot and voila….
