[Bug 755841]


Since I saw fbcompose mentioned above as a lightweight standalone
compositor that can produce tear-free output working around this issue,
I'd like to mention I've found another similar compositor that seems to
be under more active development:

Compton: https://github.com/chjj/compton

Its a nice lightweight compositor that doesn't need to replace your
window manager or anything, so it can easily be used to work around this
issue and get tear-free output. In my testing its been very stable too.

Using it with: compton --backend glx --paint-on-overlay --glx-no-stencil
--vsync opengl-swc successfully completely removes tearing for me on
both my intel machines (including in fullscreen video and with multiple
displays), and performs better than using the TearFree xorg option :)
