I've been using Ubuntu (and Mint) for almost two years (since Ubuntu 11.04 to be exact), and yesterday I decided to try some Compiz effects for a first time, never actually bothered about that. Everything is fine now, I have enabled 3D cube, left click on bottom edge activates it. Also, I've enabled wobbly windows and water effect. But, here is my problem: Since I enabled cube, my Unity launcher just hides back again one second after it's activated. Basically, as always i push cursor to the left edge of my screen, and if I keep on holding it on the edge it just hides back again. If i after it's revealed move cursor to the right over the icons it stays until I click. Sometimes this is very annoying because I have ~30 icons in launcher and when i start scrolling down they just hide...

I really hope you know what I'm talking about, maybe there is a obvious way to solve this but I didn't see it haha.

Hi, just add the 12.10 "tag" to your question in addition to unirt, compiz and launcher. – user25656 Jan 20 '13 at 11:28
