After having upgraded to Natty I got some serious issues with Compiz:

Using a filter for the Decoration-Plugin like I did before upgrading without any problems, leads Compiz to crash.

This is how my filter look like: (title=terminalOnDesktop) instead of the standard value any. That must be a bug. Any ideas how to work around?

This seems to be a Compiz bug and maybe comes along with the other problems like this: moving windows lags after update to Natty

There is a bug report for this problem, please vote! Compiz effects slow and laggy on Natty with ATI card

I'd probably suggest you reset all your compiz options if you're having problems. Something like this should get you back to a blank slate and from there you can layer on what you need:

gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz
compiz --replace

I did exactly that and I found out that after that it works better as long as I don't add some filter or exceptions to the »decoration« plugin. I would be very thankful if someone who knows would tell me if the same problem occurs on his natty installation. – user5950 Apr 30 '11 at 16:36
