Tearing when moving windows in Ubuntu 10.10

I just stumbled over the ability to set vsync in compiz settings manager. I had an increased screen tearing with my new Eizo 24” monitor for a while now and switching vsync on in compiz removes it! Yay!

Open compiz settings manager, then click “General Options”, go to the tab “Display Settings” and check “Sync with VBlank”. Move around a window and cheer ;-) .
