I have Ubuntu 16.04 installed in my laptop. I use the default graphic driver. I have 2 graphic cards: integrated and Nvidia.

I saw some questions about this and I did update system kernel to last stable: 4.6.2.

The problem that I have is that in some applications like Vivaldi the screen flickers from time to time.

What can I do to fix this?

Thank you.

[EDIT] Graphics: 1. Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller 2. Nvidia Geforce 740m

PC: Toshiba Satellite L50-A-103

  • I'm not sure how to go about fixing this but could you please list your laptop model and both your integrated and Nvidia graphics card models? I believe that would be helpful. – larouxn Jun 14 '16 at 14:13

  • I did a little research into flickering on 16.04. Some people seem to have solved their flickering by turning Bluetooth on. Idk how that fixed it but it's worth a try if your laptop has Bluetooth. Source – larouxn Jun 16 '16 at 18:52
  • I have it disabled but I'm gonna try turn it on. Any other solutions? – nervousDev Jun 17 '16 at 13:05
