Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

It's getting me crazy!
compiz or unity refresh screen (like I run compiz --replace or unity --replace) by every movement I do (e.g ctrl+tab, super+w) and somehow unexpectedly! sometimes it failed to reload title bar and keyboard functions like ctrl+tab and alt+F2 stop working, and I had no chance but reboot!

Sometimes it work without any problem. I couldn't found any reason why this happen.

I wanted to report a bug but I don't have enough information about it.

Sounds to me like compiz is crashing, and it's quite likely a bug or simply that you have incomplete upgrades, or a bad configuration. Did you change any settings in compiz of note? –  RolandiXor Jun 11 '11 at 15:55
I changed decorate windows parametere from any to (any) && !(class=covergloobus.py) because it windowed covergloobus (problem start when I changed it). I thought problem is caused by that, but I restart setting and having same problem –  Behzadsh Jun 11 '11 at 16:20
