High refresh rate on Zorin OS


I have a 144hz monitor and came from Windows 10, and can see a clear difference between the refresh rate of apps on Windows and Zorin. I changed the refresh rate to 144hz in settings, and I noticed that the mouse cursor is definitely smoother than when I had it at 60hz, however scrolling in Firefox or any other app still seems to be at 60 fps/hz.

Is this supposed to be happening? Is there anything I can do to fix?


Hi, akulakovsky.
Please see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution#Dynamically_testing_different_resolutions on how to change your refresh rate. You will use the terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and enter: xrandr to first determine what your configuration is capable of and then change refresh rate (see last part of section " Dynamically testing different resolutions").

I tried it out and it looks like it’s set to 144hz, as I thought it was.
