I have to say I solved KDE 5.5 and Plasma shell with kwin tearing have nice VLC playing on youtube.com videos on latest WHQL LTS branch, but with these fix described on these great guys site:
the most saddest thing is that fix has nothing to do with OpenGL applications like sauerbraten or teeworlds ;D
and I have no such problems under Ubuntu Linux cause it’s using compiz as composting manager and lightdm as windows manager I thought it is a root of why Ubuntu running flawlessly with any nvidia binary drivers.
but the opensuse and manjaro linux kde redaction are affected cause of using kwin ;( for that purposes.
fix me if I wrong in stating something.
please guys can you give a tip what I can do? I can’t install unity here on suse or manjaro cause it breaks dependencies, but I have to try gnome or other DE with something different in terms of composing and window manager? I already installed gnome, mate, cinnamon, deepin, i3 and few of them from repositories without conflicting dep’s
I have only one gtx580 and one display. When I disable VSYNC in game (sauerbraten, teeworlds) I have stable +150-200 fps and no screen tearing at all.
And I really wont to switch from KDE to other ugly desktop environment, I really like and want to stick myself to KDE ^_^
Thanks NV dev team.
