[INFO] related to all desktops that use compton

Post by erikdubois » Sat Jan 05, 2019 5:32 pm

If you get screentearing or general instabilty on ssd or on virtualbox

Try to change the settings in the compton.conf of your desktop

See if changing xrender to glx helps you.
# Backend to use: "xrender" or "glx".
# GLX backend is typically much faster but depends on a sane driver.
backend = "xrender";
Change it in the following file

on i3

Code: Select all

~/.config/i3/compton.conf
on openbox

Code: Select all

~/.config/compton.conf
on awesome

Code: Select all

~/.config/awesome/compton.conf
on bspwm

Code: Select all

~/.config/bspwm/compton.conf
on xmonad

Code: Select all

~/.xmonad/scripts/compton.conf
