I am really liking Bodhi Linux. The minimalism and desktop environment suit me. Thanks to Jeff and everyone else who is involved.
I am having a problem with screen tearing. I have an Intel Atom processor (the newer one, not the old netbook one) It has Intel HD graphics. In the past with other distros, enabling "Tear Free" via an X11 config file has solved the problem. But this time with Bodhi it has a side-effect of bad lag when watching local videos. I have done some research and believe that using a suitable window manager/compositer could help. Do you believe that Hoogland's ecomp and ecomorph are worth a try? In anticipation I have installed the packages listed in the ecomorph readme and have downloaded ecomp-master from github. I have found installation instructions in the forum from 2013 but am hesitant to use them since they are so old. Another forum post mentioned instructions in quick start but I don't see them there. How do I install ecomp and ecomorph?
If ecomp and ecomorph aren't good solutions, I noticed another forum suggestion to use compton. Would that be a good idea?
Are there any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

I haven't had time to try and update ecomorph / ecomp to compile with the latest EFL release Bodhi 4 ships with - that is why we do not have packages in the repository for them.
If you install the package compton from the repos it should provide simple compositing for you.

For completeness I would like to add the following:
A good method for adding commands to be executed when moksha starts is using this file
Below an example that is active on my computer.
conky -p 1 -d | \ compton -b
Explanation for those without much experience with commands:
-p (seconds) makes conky pause before it actually starts
-d makes conky work as a daemon
| (the pipe symbol) is needed between two different commands in this file.
\ (backslash) causes the next character to be interpreted differently, in this case needed to have the ENTER key function as "New Line"
-b makes compton work in the background
