i buy a new Asus laptop X555UB with intel core i7 6500 and had a clean installation of loki on it.
Everything is ok, but in chrome im experimenting some flickering/tearing as the screenshot
I had tried disabling hardware aceleration in chrome settings and disabling flash on chrome plugins but still getting this.
I had the same problem and i got to fix it by
*opening the terminal
*run ¨ sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg-video-intel
* run autoremove
and finally reboot
it fixed the flickering and now even the wallpaper changes all normal. no glitches anymore.
Finally with the help of the user 'I just look ilegal' do the purge of the xserver.
the steps where:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
sudo prime-select intel
sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg-video-intel
sudo apt-get autoremove
