I would like to use Gnome-Do's Docky but it requires me to enable either
- visual effects in the Appearances preferences (change from None to Normal) which I think enables compiz OR
- metacity's compositing_manager option in gconf-editor
The problem is that when I change my visual effects from None to Normal, I can no longer drag and drop a window to another workspace using the workspace switcher applet. From what I've read, this is a compiz bug that hasn't been fixed for years.
On the other hand, the problem with using metacity's compositing_manager is that my Alt+Tab becomes noticeably slower than the usual.
Is there a way to make things work? Since it seems that the compiz problem is not going to be fixed, I wonder if there's a way to fix my alt+tab with metacity's compositing enabled.
