Know that this solution is for.... Intel i915 onboard chip


The OP suggests creating a file named 20-intel.conf  in the directory /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d


If you were to do this from the terminal; you could vi a new file, most likely needing sudo to do so...

--- Code: ---sudo vi /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
--- End code ---


then insert (press i ) and paste (right click) the following into that screen...

--- Code: ---Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
   Driver      "intel"
   Option      "AccelMethod"  "sna"
   Option      "TearFree"    "true"
   Option      "DRI"    "3"
EndSection
--- End code ---


then press... ESC followed by :wq  the :wq will write the file -- the :wq will display at the lower left corner - if in line with the text you need to delete the :wq and ESC prior..


then as instructed ... reboot..


Again, this is for the i915 chip - the instruction may not work for you if not the same, though it may or it may not display all..
* I would create a backup as a safety line...
And know how to access the TTY if you boot to blank screen then it'll be command lines to undo...

Thank you for your reply, firenice03!

Unfortunatey, I don't have the same chip. According to the program "Lite System Report" I have:

Explanation: VGA compatible controller
Product: Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller   
Company: Intel Corporation

and

Explanation: 3D controller
Product: GF117M [GeForce 610M/710M/810M/820M / GT 620M/625M/630M/720M]   
Company: NVIDIA Corporation

What can I do? That line is very annoying. I also have it when scrolling in a pdf file not just in my browser window.
