I am really new to Ubuntu Mate and have noticed that when I refresh a page, or scroll in my browser I see horizontal, flickering lines and scrolling is not smooth. Can someone please help me to troubleshoot and fix this? I am using Chrome browser. Firefox seems fine. My laptop is a Lenovo ThinkPad T450. Thank you.
Please see below. It sound like you have compositing switched off.
Hello thank you for the reply. I did as you suggested and all appears to be OK now. Before you replied, I researched the issue and found some users had removed the Intel video driver to resolve the issue by issuing the following command:
sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg-video-intel
I tried this also, but it did not work for me and the issue remained. Do I now need to reinstall this driver? If so how?
Thank you again
