I had a similar problem. There is apparently a bug in the 4.4.0 kernel. The problem can be solved when you install the new kernel 4.4.8. You can find instructions to do it here: http://linuxdaddy.com/blog/install-kernel-4-4-on-ubuntu/

QUICK AND DIRTY WORK AROUND Disclaimer: I've found this "solution" by trials and errors, therefore I can't guarantee it's safe. Use it at your own risk. Background: when Parallels Tools is installed it copies under /usr/lib/compiz/ a bunch of files with this pattern libprlcompiz_*_*_*_*.so (with digits instead of *). Those are unity plugins and, as it ...

In my case original nvidia driers was the cause and switching back to open source nounveau helped. First, I removed all stuff from nvidia: 1. sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-* 2. sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop 3. sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf 4. echo 'nouveau' | sudo tee -a /etc/modules``` (source: How can I uninstall a nvidia driver completely ?) ...

Usually the answer to this is by resetting dconf entries for unity: dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ setsid compiz This seems to be due to bug #1569357 on launchpad. Usually they also give a few remediations for the bug in the launchpad entry, and it only seems to happen with sddm (the simple desktop display manager) - it does not happen with lightdm. Using ...

I suffered the similar problem today when I upgraded a Lenove V460 laptop to 16.04 from 15.10. The problem is due to the bugs in kernel 4.4.0-21, and is solved in kernel 4.5.2. You can try the newer kernel from here.

I solved the problem following these steps: Activated the proprietary Nvidia graphics driver instead of the nouveau open-source one. Unfortunately this made my Ubuntu fail to boot, so I had to follow these steps to get it to work: http://askubuntu.com/a/391608/281857 At this point Ubuntu was booting but there was still no launcher, top bar, etc. However I ...

Okay, apparently my problem has been magically solved. I apt-get'ted plasma-desktop and tried that, just to see if that would allow me to maximize windows on both monitors. Nope. I could not even drag windows to my left monitor. It would split-screen maximize the window on the right monitor instead. Not feeling like fiddling with an unfamiliar desktop ...

This worked fine for me on Ubuntu 15.10 (command in terminal:) dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/wm/preferences/mouse-button-modifier '"<SUPER>"' This changes Mouse+TAB combination to Mouse+SUPER

I believe this is a bug. Going into CCSM and toggling the Close Window key binding under General Options fixed it for me, but this is obviously not an ideal solution.
