I just did a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04 for my intel/nvidia combo because I could not get rid of waves/slight tearing when scrolling in chrome.
I was convinced that my nvidia chip is the issue here, but I am not sure anymore. I have created a thread for my issue here:
And the one difference that I can see between a user that manages to get graphics working properly and my setup is that it seems my intel card is configured wrong.
Here is my output:
artur@pandaadb:~$ lspci -knn | grep -EA2 'VGA|3D' 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation Skylake Integrated Graphics [8086:191b] (rev 06) DeviceName: Onboard IGD Subsystem: Dell Skylake Integrated Graphics [1028:06e5] -- 01:00.0 3D controller : NVIDIA Corporation GM107GLM [Quadro M1000M] [10de:13b1] (rev a2) Subsystem: Dell GM107GLM [Quadro M1000M] [1028:06e5] Kernel driver in use: nvidia
I wonder if my issue is that the intel card is not using any kernel driver, since with other users the output usually says:
Kernel driver in use: i915
After my install, i am now using the nvidia 361 proprietary driver.
So the question I guess is, do i need to have the i915 driver installed? Is it already installed? How do i get my system to use this driver?
In my additional drivers settings, the intel card is also set to "unknown".
From googling I found that 16.04 has the latest intel drivers already, which is why there is no installer. I am not sure however how to get my system to actually use those drivers.
Currently I also have the device disabled (in additional drivers), to see if that would fix my issue.
EDIT: Might this be unfixable and have something to do with the vsync issue for laptops?
