I've been getting screen tearing that is only present in Ubuntu (MATE 16.04).
Often when scrolling on pages, I get a horizontal line that tears through, and the same goes for games, particularly Minecraft (whenever I look around there is a horizontal tear)
It is extremely frustrating because the issue is not present in Windows.
I am using an i5-3570k with a NVIDIA GTX 670. Currently using the NVIDIA 361.42 proprietary drivers available through the driver options.
I tried the solution here by putting a configuration file in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d as well as this solution to no avail.
