I have Google Chrome on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. The screen will occasionally be flickering weirdly. Almost like when I take a screen shot the screen goes white really quickly is what Google Chrome does. How can I make this not happen?
I've had similar screen flickering issues in Chrome while running Ubuntu 16.04 and with an Intel-based integrated video chipset (i915).
Here's the solution thread that worked for me: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=606152#c72
Note comments #72 and #73. I followed ONLY Step 1 of comment #72 and it appears to have worked. Here's that solution:
sudo nano /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics"
Option "AccelMethod" "sna" Option "TearFree" "true" Option "DRI" "3" EndSection
You can try to remove xorg video driver. It can be reinstalled
sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg-video* sudo reboot
