I've been using the
12.10 since It was launched.
I have a
I7 with a
Geforce GT520 running
304.43 driver version.
12.04, using a lot of
Compiz animation, I could drag a window running
glxgears quickly through the desktop, but now, using
12.10, is almost impossible to do this. It hangs a lot. Actually, is almost impossible even try resizing another window if a instance of
glxgears is running. The cube performance is terrible too.
I'm not sure, but seems that this new
Compiz are worst than previous version. The conky also is abnormal, it often looses its transparency, showing a dark background instead. It's not a conky configuration, I have tried all possible configurations.
gnome-shell I have the same issues.
It only does not happen while using
gnome 2d (without effects).
Are you feeling the same poor speed and motion quality on
I had also tried to uninstall the
compiz, almost everything, but nothing returned the great desktop performance of Unity on
My boot time, using a SSD is around 18 seconds. I think that it could be better, too.
