I had the same problem and i got to fix it by *opening the terminal *run upgrade *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.

  • I was so skeptical about to purge the xserver, but finally give it a try and works perfectly, thanks very much! Commented Jan 17, 2017 at 17:31

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

sudo reboot
