Summary0003809: Screen tearing on XORG with intel driver.
DescriptionThere is screen tearing on any kali linux live version.
Steps To ReproduceTo completely remove tearing you need to add new file:


which contain text:

Or just use wayland instead of X.org (it will be much better than xorg).

We have no plans to enable non-default options. If this is really better, it should be the default upstream or in Debian.
