Screen tearing since update 3.4.8


Since it shows the Nvidia card instead of the Intel, the screen is tearing and not only the videos. I think it is due to an option in the Nvidia driver where vsynch is turned off. Sadly i cannot manually turn it on. Could you please add a feature to Endless where I can choose the preferred card in the options, or an app to change the driver’s settings?

Thanks for reporting this. Sorry that there is no UI available, but you can manually disable the nvidia driver by:

  1. Open Terminal
  2. Run sudo -i to become root
  3. Run echo blacklist nvidia > /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf
  4. Reboot

If you want to re-enable it in future, replace step 3 with: rm /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf

Regarding the tearing, we had not noticed it in testing, but having checked “tearing test” videos in youtube, we can confirm this too. We’ll explore turning on Nvidia PRIME Sync in future Endless releases (
