Screen tearing on laptop with GTX 1060

I just installed Ubuntu Budgie 19.04 on my laptop with a GTX 1060, and I’m encountering a lot of screen tearing. What can I do to remedy this?

Hi and welcome!

Have you installed the recommended nvidia drivers in Menu - Hardware Drivers ?

I have the latest proprietary driver installed. Should I install 390 instead?

Try having a look at the nvidia settings and choosing force pipeline.

If that is the recommended driver then you should stick with that.

This is all I have there

The instructions here for Ubuntu 18.04 seem to work, haven’t noticed any adverse effects yet.
