LMDE Cinnamon 64-bit tearing problem, slugish screen respons

Postby Dutchie on Tue Feb 25, 2014 3:47 pm

Hi everybody,

Somehow, I can't find my other post so I'm making a new one, this time following the guideline a bit more closely. I've used LMDE MATE (64-bit) in the past and for UP8 I've decided to try and use Cinnamon. I'm using the 64-bit version and the new install ISO from a couple of days ago. It's very nice, works good, but for some reason, when I watch youtube video's using Firefox or using Totem, there is some tearing and stutter. Also when I try to move a window, the screen responds slugish: i.e. when I move my mouse the window follows when my pointer is already somewhere else giving a kind of stalkerish experience. It doesn't respond on-the-fly. I don't know how else to explain.

I used Google to try and find some similar situation but couldn't find any.

I'd like to ask the community for help in order to solve this problem. Is this general behaviour? I would like to avoid going back to MATE since I want to expand my knowledge and get some experience using Cinnamon. The screen tearing/stutter/slugish behavour is the only thing at this point which bothers me. Everything else "just works". :D

So,
- how would you guys go about solving this??
- I've noticed that screen tearing issues might need a bit more inside knowledge, know a solution or anyone who you could ask to help?

Thanks for the time and help. If anything needed, such as specific info, just ask and I'll deliver.

Greetings,

I decided to use LMDE cinnamon too, and have came across the same issue "kinda"
this is the method that might help you:

run command on terminal "sudo gedit /etc/environment"

Add these two lines to bottom, save and reboot:
CLUTTER_PAINT=disable-clipped-redraws:disable-culling
CLUTTER_VBLANK=True
