Prevent Horizontal Tearing for NVidia GPUs on KDE Plasma

This is one quick trick that helped me eliminate all the horizontal tearing in my steam games. You might have to play with settings such as V-Sync, but here is the way to suspend KWin compositor for full screen windows.

1. Open KDE System Settings

2. Click Display And Monitor

 3. Click Compositor Icon on the left pane.

 4. Click Suspend compositor for full screen windows and then Apply.

Enjoy your tear-free (horizontal at least) gaming on Steam!
