on my Linux desktop the frame tearing was removed by activating VSYNC as such:
nvidia-settings -a SyncToVBlank=1 export __GL_SYNC_TO_VBLANK=1
Om my Jetson TK1 however, there is no “nvidia-settings” application, and I have been unable to activate VSYNC.
I tried modifying /etc/X11/xorg.conf and adding:
Option "RegistryDwords" "SyncToVBlank=1" Option "RegistryDwords" "XVideoTextureSyncToVBlank=1"
But did not see any effect.
I Believe that both X and OpenGL need to have VSYNC activated. Would be greatful for any hints.
