I have to disable "Visual Effects" (system -> preferences-> appearance -> visual effects -> none) because I get a terrible flicker/blinking when it is enabled, but I'd really like to use compiz window grid shortcuts. They only work w/ visual effects set to "extra".

Is there any way to specifically enable compiz grid functionality without turning on everything else that seems to bog down the grapics?

Compiz isn't used with the visual effects set to none, another window manager, Metacity, is on, which means, you can't enable anything Compiz related. –  mikewhatever Mar 6 '13 at 20:26
