Nice find, I'll need to try this myself.  Did you see this

 

Checked with 2nd generation Intel HD3000 graphics and 5 generation HD5500 graphics, both worked without those options.

What graphics card are you using?

You need to use sudo:

sudo mkdir -p /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/

It's fixed guys! 

My custom resolution was gone after this but i've fixed that to!

This is a great idea to fix screen-tearing (for Xubuntu only)  :guitar:  :bananas:

To fix Screen-tearing (Only for intel HD Graphics) ** 

 

-> Open Terminal and type: " sudo mkdir -p /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ 

-> Typ your password to confirm!

-> After creating that Folder in X11, again open Terminal and add this line: " sudo mousepad /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf " and hit Enter..

-> Copy and paste there that Configuration:

 

Section "Device"

Identifier "Intel Graphics"

Driver "intel"

Option "TearFree" "true"

 

EndSection

 

-> Save that and exit your text editor, and restart your X11 session.

 

[WARNING!

 

Can lower performance and uses more RAM..

In linux mint 18.3, with Integrated graphics.....the solution for system wide screen tearing is the following. In a terminal type:

gksudo xed /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

in the empty file that opens, copy & paste the following:

Section    "Device"
Identifier "Intel Graphics"
Driver     "intel"
Option     "TearFree" "true"
Option     "AccelMethod" "sna" 
EndSection

Save the file, by clicking on 'File' and then click on 'Save'......and then Reboot.

 

This does work in a fully updated LM 18.3 Cinnamon

I didn't know that LM has (X11) to.. does every DE have these folders?

Can it lowers the Performance for LM? ..

Because in XFCE it has lowers my Performance a little bit ..  :mellow:
