I thought that was obvious from the code block in my last post. Read that again and see if you can figure it out ;)

mmmm... hard to guess but from the command below it seems present in the source and not in the package. And you said the package not its source.

Code: Select all
sudo apt-file show xserver-xorg-video-intel | cut -d ":" -f 2 | xargs grep intel | grep 20


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get source xserver-xorg-video-intel


the grep does not find the code that you quoted...
grep -r | grep intel

Try
Code: Select all
find /usr/share/doc -name xorg.conf

Or
Code: Select all
dpkg -L xserver-xorg-video-intel | grep xorg.conf

The example conf file has nothing about TearFree, but there is a readme and reference to the man intel.
ANyways thanks now it is solved.

Code: Select all
/usr/share/doc/xserver-xorg-video-intel/xorg.conf

Section "Device"
   Identifier "Intel"
   Driver "intel"
#   Option "AccelMethod" "uxa"
EndSection

It ain't solved until you edit the title of your first post in the thread and add [SOLVED]. Is this the first time you've been asked to do this?
