Since Unity was used on Ubuntu 11.04 Beta, this problem has been distubbing me for a long time. Yesterday I found the bug report and try to get it well, but still there's one problem. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/771448?comments=all I did as the post told in #6, edge fliping works well at first. Later I found every time I reboot, the edge flipging at Top will not work. After I ran "compiz --replace", it worked in the right way. I checked that report again, without seeing a better solution. So how can I deal with that problem?

Add compiz --replace to the startup applications maybe? (Until a real solution comes along) –  nitstorm Oct 12 '11 at 5:35
    
According to the FAQ this question is not valid, beta is beta, there is a reason its called beta, its not finished! You just will have to wait for the bug to be solved or add compiz --replace as suggested to your start up (make a script for it) ;) Gl and hope this can be fixed for you soon. –  Bruno Pereira Oct 12 '11 at 8:33

According to the FAQ this question is not valid, beta is beta, there is a reason its called beta, its not finished! You just will have to wait for the bug to be solved or add unity --replace as suggested to your start up (or add it to any startup script you might have) ;)

If you want to add it to a script on your start up programs search for the program Startup Applications.

Save this (or add it to your startup script) on your home folder or somewhere you have permitions:

#! /bin/bash
unity --replace

you will need to use chmod 755 <nameofthescript.sh> to make it executable. Add the scrip to the Startup Applications list and that should be able to fix it until a new package comes.

If you dont have a startup script just add unity --replace to your start up applications list.

Why not just put compiz --replace in startup applications? Why write a script for it? –  Oli Oct 12 '11 at 11:51
    
@oli because we love Rube Goldberg machines! –  jrg Oct 12 '11 at 11:55
    
Side note: brunopereira81, it's unity --replace not compiz --replace. You always replace unity, not compiz - at least when you're dealing with something like this. –  jrg Oct 12 '11 at 11:57
    
I like scripts? –  Bruno Pereira Oct 12 '11 at 11:57
    
Scripts break/get overwritten/lost/etc - if you lose a login command, you've got other problems. :) –  jrg Oct 12 '11 at 12:03
