Hey, guys. I'm a Windows user, but trying to change to Linux for a lot of reasons. First, I installed Deepin Linux, but I had some problems (non-video related like now). Then, I searched for a more mature and more used distro, so I found Manjaro.
I installed Manjaro KDE on last friday and I'm enjoying so much, but I have a problem: poor perfomance with Nvidia. I have a GTX 950 2GB and I have the following problems:
1 - Screen tearing,
2 - When I'm in heavy websites, the page get laggy for example:
If I go to Twitch.TV and try to chat in the stream, it's not smooth, it's not normal, it's like the letters has a delay to show up or if I try to change the volume, it changes but it's not smooth, it's laggy.
If I change the stream's resolution to 1080p, it freezes and only sound keeps running;
I've already try everything that I found on internet and I'm trying to solve this since friday. I have tried this:
(I'm already using property nvidia driver since installation)
1 - Create a file called kwin.sh and put it in /etc/profile.d with the following lines:
2 - Go to "sudo nvidia-settings" and check "Force Composition Pipeline" and save to X Configuration File in /etc/X11/mhwd.d/nvidia.conf
3 - Go to "sudo nvidia-settings" and check "Force Full Composition Pipeline" and save to X Configuration File in /etc/X11/mhwd.d/nvidia.conf
4 - Uncheck "Sync to VBlank" under OpenGL Settings
5 - Uncheck "Allow Flipping" under OpenGL Settings
6 - In Compositor change "Tearing prevention ("vsync")" to Full screen repaints
7 - In Compositor change "Tearing prevention ("vsync")" to Re-use screen content
8 - In compositor change "Rendering backend" to OpenGL 3.1
I tried all this separately and all together and nothing solved my problems. I don't know what else to do. I really don't want go back to Windows. Can anyone help me?
