When logging in, edges are sometimes unresponsive, ie right click on the edge brings the usual right click menu instead of the Compiz command. And yes, compiz is running (wmctrl -m -> Compiz).

It can be fixed with a "compiz --replace" but it's a bit frustrating.

Any idea how to fix this ? or to check Compiz logs on startup ? Known bug ?

Also, unrelated, Compiz scale plugin "on a group of window" NEVER works...

Add Compiz to the startup applications

Name: Compiz
Command: bash -c "sleep 3; compiz --replace"

Well, for me, it doesnt happen every time, but thanks for that bug report – user50745 May 12 '12 at 0:06

Try to bind them with Ubuntu Tweak.
Ubuntu Tweak saves my edge binding settings, maybe you can try it.
