place move my thread if it isnt in the right place. thanks
Ive been experiencing tearing (whole screen not only xv) when composite is enabled and the nvidia drivers installed, even if i have vsync turned on (and some other problems like the window title gets messy if using aurorae).

also i have to say that if i enable the snow effect the tearing completely disappears and the fps plugin says kwin is running exactly at 61 fps (which is the right value) but if i turn of the snow effect the tearing eventually comes back.
that makes me think that only opengl apps are getting the vsync. (and the snow effect makes the whole desktop to be opengl drawn i guess)
BTW anyone knows if they are planing to implement the QT --graphicssystem opengl option? that'd be awesome to have a complete gpu-rendered desktop, and that would fix my problem i believe.
Thanks in advance.
btw do you know if ~/.xinitrc gets sourced in kubuntu?
same behavior in my macbook pro and my hp 311 (same GPU)
