I tried various fixes such as using forcecompositionpipeline = on (edited /etc/x11/xorg.conf, there was no option for it in the nvidia x settings) but still the issue persists. Switching to intel graphics with the option "TearFree" "true" fixes it, but is there a way to fix it without switching? I need to work with nvidia graphics.
Yes, I have updated to the latest drivers (390.12) and I have a gt 940m. Thanks!
