I using fluxbox as my window manager and I'm experiencing tearing when viewing videos. Tearing does not happen under Gnome or Unity. I primarily use VLC to play videos in full-screen (1920x1080). Tearing happens regardless of the player I use, as long as I'm in fluxbox and full-screen.
I have an Intel on-board video card.
I've tried following the instructions at Screen tearing in 11.10 with intel graphics but it has no effect.
My questions are:
- What is different about how fluxbox handles tearing? It seems like compiz isn't having any effect -- what setting should I tweak?
- What can I do to reduce/remove tearing when viewing videos under fluxbox?
