Nvidia tearing in Ubuntu 11.04 & Linux Mint 11

I hate tearing, i really hate tearing… and Compiz…

The only way to eliminate tearing on my Dell XPS with a 8400m graphics chip is to run the following as a Startup Application:

  • bash -c 'compiz --replace'

To test if the compiz –replace command works, press ALT-F2 and write: compiz --replace
