Subject description: BionicDog Bug
 

I have BionicPup64 on my HDD, and I get this strange "screen tearing" issue.
It happens on a straight line near the top of my screen, and I don't know how to fix it. Any help/suggestions are appreciated.

Information that might help solve the problem:
Computer: Dell Latitude E7250
Screen Dimensions: 1366x768
Graphics: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 5500 (Broadwell GT2)

As I was writing this, I realized that when I use a screen recorder, the problem doesn't show up. So that's why I'm recording with a crummy phone camera.


here's a link to the GIF as well: https://imgur.com/JwO6Fyf

My guess --> The window manager isn't totally compatible with your driver ( which I presume is 'intel')

Check to see if there is an option to select another window manager (WM)

Also check if pFind and other gtkdialog script apps will pop up a menu properly.
That's a problem that some window managers have.

So, what is it BionicDog or Bionicpup64?
What specific version?
Example:
Bionicpup64 8.0?

Menu>System>Pup-sysinfo>Devices>Display>Summary

Post the info given.

hi Liver,

try creating the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
Code:
Section "Device"
  Identifier  "Card0"
  Driver      "intel"
  VendorName  "INTEL Corporation"
  Option "DRI" "3"
  Option "TripleBuffer" "true"
  Option "TearFree" "true"
EndSection

then restart x

if x doesn't start for some reason
Code:
rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
xwin

Thank you so much! That fixed my problem, so now I can watch cartoons without that annoying bug! Very Happy

(Sorry for not specifying my puppy, I use BionicPup64 8.0. I’ve been using FatDog64, so maybe I got the names mixed up...)
