After browsing the forums of mint and ubuntu for a few days i still can't find a solution for my problem so i'm posting it here:
In July i changed from Wndows 10 a dual boot configuration of Mint and windows 10, with only switching to windows for casual photshop usage. The experience has been great so far. But nevertheless i'm experiencing some problems with my graphics drivers. I'm running linux mint 19 from an SSD on my Toshiba laptop with intel integrated graphics and a discrete AMD Radeon R7 m260 card.
Right now i'm having problems with black boxes forming around windows, especially while moving windows. Graphical performance was never great but the last month it has been extreme. Last week i resized my partitions as i didn't have enough space left on the root partition. Since then the problem with the black boxes around windows are present almost al the time, video playback became stuttering as wel. Boot times feel longer as well, but are okay for me. Anyone who can identify the cause and help solving the graphics issues?
Please regard that i'm still kind of new to linux Thank you!
