if you used nvidia gpu, it can be helpful this extension gnome-shell-extension-disable-unredirect. https://github.com/kazysmaster/gnome-...

Just add gnome version of meatadata.jason.

And intel gpu is add the tear free by xorg.conf.

Hello there, I had the same issue even when I try to maximize windows. I fixed it doing the next:

  • Open the file: /etc/default/grub
  • Find the variable: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX
  • Add into the value: i915.enable_ips=0

This is for example mine:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="i915.enable_ips=0 rd.lvm.lv=fedora/swap rd.lvm.lv=fedora/root rhgb quiet"
  • Re-config Grub:

Choose depending your system

For EFI: sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg

No EFI: sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
  • Restart your computer and try it.

I'm not and expert and I'm not sure if it works for everybody but hope It helps as much people as possible.
