Linux Mint Intel Screen Tearing Horizontal Line Solution Fix

sudo mkdir -p /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/

sudo vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
 

Type "i" and enter the following:

Section "Device"
  Identifier      "Intel Graphics"
  Driver          "intel"
  Option          "TearFree"          "true"
EndSection

Be sure to use this guide with the correct quotes " (if they have a nice curve to them they are wrong and will cause your graphics/Xorg to not work).

You don't even need to restart your whole computer but you could just hit "Control + Alt + Backspace"

If you have an error when restarting you probably have the wrong curved quotes from somewhere else.

 

[1010978.161] (==) Using system config directory "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d"
[1010978.161] Parse error on line 1 of section InputClass in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
    The Section keyword requires a quoted string to follow it.

[1010978.161] (EE) Problem parsing the config file
[1010978.161] (EE) Error parsing the config file
[1010978.161] (EE)
Fatal server error:
[1010978.162] (EE) no screens found(EE)
[1010978.162] (EE)

The above is happening once again due to wrong quotes coming from some bulletin boards and Wordpress blogs.  Make sure your quotes are straight like this " and not curved.  If they are just delete manually and requote and restart.

sudo service mdm restart
