I had problem on my laptop using Zorin 16.3 PRO, my laptop have graphical card NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050, i try reinstall os few times with NVIDIA "modern" installation and normal but problem in both places is same. In general, the graphics card does not work as it should, cuts the screen when scrolling, cuts videos when playing online, I tried reinstalling the original drivers from the site, the problem continues!
At the moment I am very disappointed with this OS and I regret paying for a PRO version to support!
Please if anyone has had an improved problem let me know how they solved it!
Well, we have looked at the Nvidia driver...
But Nvidia driver does not always get used. It generally is used for more intense applications.
You also have an Intel built in graphics card. Watching Youtube, on my computer, does not kick in the Nvidia card. That's the Onboard Intel at work.
What is your terminal output for
glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version"
Yes, this will show your Nvidia 525, as well. Just want to see your Mesa build version.
If you need to upgrade mesa; the Mesa ppa is
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kisak/kisak-mesa
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
Intel may need the Tear-Free option set. You would need to create the file:
sudo touch /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
Open the file in text editor elevated to root or use nano and ctrl+shift+v to paste the below in:
Complete nonsense, one after another no works! How do other OS configure things themselves, I mean Ubuntu, Popos and others, only this stupid Zorin doesn't want to! I SORRY I ORDERED IT ABOUT THE VERSION! FULL OF BUGS!
I am running Zorin OS on Nvidia RTX3060 without any trouble. Everything installed and worked right out of the box.
In the meantime, on other distros, users make the same complaint you just did. Not because those distros are inferior, but because in computing, sometimes things go wrong. It paints our perceptions.
Ubuntu and PoP_OS have the same configuration and base files as Zorin OS. They all use the same drivers.
It can be very frustrating, I know your pain for sure. Took me about a year to fully commit to installing in the beginning ('04-ish).. Didn't quite grasp the driver installs or trying to diagnose HW stuff.. Ran Ubuntu and Knoppix off live CD for a looong time.
I was watching your YT screen capture; I couldn't hep but think 'is HW acceleration enabled?'. For my new-ish 11th gen i7 with an MX450, I still can't enable HW acceleration; it stutters, a lot. Especially with higher definition videos. Drivers - would highly recommend using one of the offered versions through 'Additional Drivers' though; not the open kernel ones. I've not ever had any good interactions with those, new or old..
Hey i`m backend developer and building high performence apps via docker based on microservices, one project have more than 40+ docker containers, in every restart i wait a few minutes to start working.
Thanks for the responses, but to play by trial and error, I can't spend that much time. I installed Ubuntu and no have issues.
