I'm having screen tearing. I'm using Fedora 25 with the i3 window manager on a laptop with Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller. I tried

compton --backend glx --vsync opengl-swc

It fixed the tearing but now the windows glitch when I resize them or switch to another workspace. What's the problem? I tried --paint-on-overlay too but it didn't work.

I fixed it by adding editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf like this

Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
   Driver      "intel"
Option "TearFree" "true"
Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
