How to solve Google Chrome Flickering on Ubuntu 16.04

Just do the following two steps:

  1. sudo nano /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop

  2. Scroll down to the “Exec” line
  3. Add two additional parameters, so that it looks like this:

    Exec=/usr/bin/google-chrome-stable –disable-gpu-driver-bug-workarounds –enable-native-gpu-memory-buffers %U

That’s it, now restart Chrome and it shall work perfectly!

I am using Google Chrome 54 64-bit on Linux Mint 18 64-bit with the Cinnamon Desktop
