  • I'm using Ubuntu 21.10
  • I have an nVidia GPU (GTX 1060 6GB)
  • I am using the 470 NVidia drivers from within Ubuntu

I've tried the answer in:
https://askubuntu.com/questions/779682/screen-tearing-when-scrolling-and-in-games

but the config for me always fails to save (even when ran as sudo), seems permissions based.

The message is: Unable to open X config file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf for writing.

Does Ubuntu support hardware acceleration in web browsers like Brave and Firefox?

A helpful Linux user told me:

For Ubuntu 21.10 they switched to Wayland and Xorg does NOT exist, hence you can not write an Xorg (X11) file out. You need to switch to Xorg from Wayland, or just use a different distribution that uses Xorg.
