Nvidia Linux Mint/Ubuntu screentearing horizontal line solution

Finally after ages I found the solution which is on many pages on the net but not obvious and should have been standard or more common info!

Instant Solution:

Type this into the terminal (unfortunately the driver config menu doesn't have the option as itis hidden):

nvidia-settings --assign CurrentMetaMode="nvidia-auto-select +0+0 { ForceCompositionPipeline = On }"

Make permanent

 

Click "Save to X configuration File", choose your name and you can then edit your xorg.conf file.

 

Edit vi /etx/X11/xorg.conf

Change the metamodes option like so:


    Option "metamodes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0 { ForceCompositionPipeline = On }"


    Option "metamodes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0 { ForceCompositionPipeline = On }"
