Bug Report Screen tearing on Nvidia proprietary drivers.


New Member
Basically the issue is that on Nvidia proprietary drivers the usage of XHSM screen capture is atrociously bad. There is tearing, black flickers all over the screen, applications windows disappearing and a whole manner of other bad stuff.

I'm not sure if it's DE dependent, but I doubt it since I tried it out in Plasma, Unity and Pantheon and in each the issue is the same. It seems to work okay on Nouveau, but that has its own problems.

I haven't seen this happening with other software, like SimpleScreenRecorder.


And someting like that ?

I just disable "Allow Flipping" in the NVIDIA X Server Settings and now everything is fine.
