GTX 770M - 367.57 - Ubuntu Screen Tearing

I am using a 64-bit machine with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and I am experiencing consistent screen tearing while using any application (Firefox, Nautilus, LibreOffice, and many others). I have tried enabling TripleBuffer in my xorg.conf file but it has little or no effect. I have also attempted changing Compiz settings to disable vsync and set a hard refresh rate, but that made no change in terms of tearing so I returned it back to default (vsync on, automatic refresh rate). I have seen information on another nvidia forum topic which has staled,, that says this issue might be associated with Optimus on Linux and has not been fixed yet. Has a fix for this issue been released?

Have you tried an incrementally newer nVidia driver version?

  • Install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau

  • Reboot

  • Then install the desired version of the nVidia binary driver

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt-get update

Sorry for the very late response, I’ve tried getting the latest binary drivers but the screen tearing persists. It actually caused my screen resolution to reset to 640x480, but I was able to edit the x config file to get full resolution back. Each of the things I have tried have been done before and after restarting the computer multiple times.

You need to set up prime sync on an optimus enabled laptop to get rid of tearing:
