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
