Kudos to you all friends of MX and thanks for hanging in there with me! ;)

Was able to create that file with FeatherPad, save it as root and then paste it into the folder.
Rebooted and no more screen-tearing!! yay!

Don't know if it's my imagination, but fonts seem much darker, sharper and thus easier to read too.

Don't save it as a .txt file, just as "20-radeon.conf". Then you need to be root or sudo to copy it into that system folder.

Code: Select all

sudo cp 20-radeon.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d
We already have an Intel tweaker in MX Tweak, and radeon and amdgpu support the Tearfree option--maybe we can add that to Tweaker.

Here's the file already created for you and zipped up:
20-radeon.conf.zip

@Stevo - yup, do think it would help in my case.

Being a non-geek (other than always a hassle to find this post with your helpful tip), i never seem to remember where and how to install that file.
Of course, XFCE 4.14 should resolve that issue but who knows when MX will come out with it (when it is ready i know).
