Screen glitch when scrolling in portrait mode

Hi everyone! I have some experience using Linux and decided to install Budgie on a Lenovo Yoga 720-12ikb laptop touchpad hand me down that came from my wife. Looks pretty nice, but getting a few bugs so far, one of which is that when I try using it as a tablet in portrait mode and start scrolling I see a verticle bar of distortion running down the screen on the right hand side of the display. Not a horrible issue, but I’m a bit of a perfectionist and would like to know of any fixes for this if they exist. Thanks for any help here!

Quick google says that you have intel 620 graphics.

Try this Q&A to see if it helps you Screen Tearing on Ubuntu Xorg 20.04 with Intel Graphics - Ask Ubuntu

From reading that Q&A, it looks like there is no 20-intel.conf file on my machine, so I created one in the /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d directory. I then added the following lines to the file I created:

Section “Device”
Identifier “Intel Graphics”
Driver “intel”
Option “TearFree” “true”

I don’t really know what I’m doing, but tried this and seems to have worked! :smile:
