[XORG] i915 Video Tearing

view full story

http://www.kubuntuforums.net – 'm using FOSS intel graphics drivers with Kernel 3.8.0-29 and Kubuntu 13.04. There seems to be video tear at the top of my screen. It's apparent when I'm dragging windows around or playing video back in full screen. I've been googling and apparently there's a tear free option that I can put into an xorg.conf file? However, I do not have an xorg.conf file and I am not familiar with the syntax to set one up. So this is really a 2 part question. 1) I'd like to try to xorg.conf option, so what would I need to put into the file to set it up? 2) If that's not the way to fix this, has anyone found (HowTos)
