All games using the Unity3d Engine are affected regardless of their configuration. I also get tearing on the desktop when playing videos in VLC or scrolling Website in Firefox. The problem pressist when anonther DE or Windowmanager (Openbox) is used.

have you tried this?


Avoid screen tearing in KDE (KWin)

/etc/profile.d/kwin.sh

export __GL_YIELD=“USLEEP”

Also if the above doesn’t help, then try this:

/etc/profile.d/kwin.sh

export KWIN_TRIPLE_BUFFER=1

Do not have both of the above enabled at the same time. Also if you enable triple buffering make sure to enable TripleBuffering for the driver itself
