The only screen tearing I get is from viewing content in Chrome (Nvidia on Manjaro) but I am guessing that is because chrome STILL does not support hardware acceleration on Linux.

After trying the method in the video and saving the nvidia.conf, I could not get into my desktop so I had to restore the backup I made of it prior to overwriting it with the new settings.... ALWAYS make sure you backup your original settings or you could end up in "POOP Creek" without a paddle!

Sad part is that Chrome will NEVER have HW acceleration on Linux.

It is not necessary to run nvidia-settings as root.


You can do the Pipeline thing as described in the video and save the settings in your .home directory for your user and that not only fixed screen tearing in chrome, it also fixed visual artifacts problems I was having in compiz so the nvidia-settings can be used on a USER basis rather than system-wide.

Honestly, no big loss. There are other browsers on Linux that do this just fine and even allow DRM content to play for sites like Netflix. Thanks Firefox! Opera seems pretty decent as well being built on Chromium. Don't notice half the issues that I used to experience with Chrome. I know I don't speak for everyone and honestly, I can't imagine that it would be that much more intensive on the development side of things. In my perception, it is just Google's way of politely saying that they aren't going to support mainstream Linux.  >:(

Even denying HW support in Chrome on Chrome OS (based on Gentoo)? Google, the Microsoft of Linux!
