Zorin 16 Lite screen tearing

I see some screen tearing when i open an Opera browser, for example. Do you know how i fix that problem?
Kernel version is 5.13.0-30-generic
Dell Latitude E7440 laptop which has Intel i5-4300U cpu.

And this problem exists too

Please relay what graphics you are using

sudo apt install inxi && inxi -G


sudo lshw -c video

Device-1: Intel Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics driver: i915 v: kernel
Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.13 driver: modesetting
unloaded: fbdev,vesa tty: N/A
OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 4400 (HSW GT2)
v: 4.5 Mesa 21.2.6

Can you please try this guide: (Note that you are using i915)

To the above, you might also try Driver "modesetting".

What i should put to "Device"
Should i put my computer name or integrated graphics name?

I tried

Section "Device"
    Identifier "Intel Graphics"
    Driver "i915"
    Option "TearFree"    "true"

but it didn't do anything

I also tried:

Section "Device"
    Identifier "Intel Graphics"
    Driver "i915"
    Option "TearFree"    "true"
    Option "AccelMod"    "uxa"
    Option "DRI"         "3"

But that didn't work either

You answered your own question. :wink:

Can you try

    Driver "modesetting"

If that does not work, remove the files you created above.

xrandr --output HDMI3 --transform 1,0,-1,0,1,-1,0,0,1


That worked! Thanks for help :grin:
