The Arch wiki page on Intel graphics
notes: "Some (Debian & Ubuntu, Fedora, KDE) recommend not installing the xf86-video-intel driver, and instead falling back on the modesetting driver for fourth generation and newer GPUs."
It also notes: "For Vulkan support (Ivy Bridge and newer), install the vulkan-intel package."
I have the following questions for those with Intel GPUs:
- Do you run the Intel driver or the modesetting driver?
- In case your GPU is a recent one, have you installed vulkan-intel?
My problem with the Intel graphics in screen tearing in screencasts. The
TearFree option does not make things better here and I don't want to rever back to
UXA. Then, my fourth question is:
- Have you been able to eliminate screen tearing when recording your desktop using the Intel driver? The follow up question is: If so, how?
