Ubuntu – Nvidia drivers – Unable to check “Force full composition pipeline”


I read that in order to avoid screen tearing I should enable the option "Force full composition pipeline" on nvidia settings[¹]. However that option doesn't seem to be available in my system.

I thought nvidia-settings might have been held back but according to the blog post below, that option should be available in this version:

Am I missing something?

The solutions above do not work with Ubuntu 20.04 but the problem seems to persist. But the working solution is quite simple:

sudo nano /lib/modprobe.d/nvidia-kms.conf
sudo update-initramfs -u

The original content of nvidia-kms.conf is:

# This file was generated by nvidia-prime
# Set value to 1 to enable modesetting
options nvidia-drm modeset=0

As it says, modeset=0 has to be changed to modeset=1.

I wonder why this is not enabled from the beginning.
