thank you, this helped a lot. Yet the switching feedback is horrible - large-hazy icons. Any suggestions for having the plain window thumbnail? Thanks, Rami

On my xubuntu I have "Task Manager", I had a quick look and it doesn't appear to call indicator-multiload, and it's never caused a problem for me. Maybe give that a whirl? I assume you've also uninstalled, purged, and reinstalled indicator-multiload, just in case successive overlay upgrades are the reason behind it being strange? Best of luck!

Even after some quite extensive googling, I couldn't find anything like this, so I threw together my own solution: Spatial Window Switcher. It is very simple and probably has bugs, but so far fulfills my needs.

I am having the same problem. I have 1GB VRAM and unity consumes usually around 850MB - this makes most of the games unable to even run and if they do, they are choppy as ***. Although not a solution, I found a small "workaround" to enable some basic gaming: Just before running the game/program I jump to text-only terminal with Ctrl+Alt+F1 and then ...

Through compiz there is problem: Enabling the Window decoration disable the Unity.

If you want to use Unity then there is workaround or you can say ...

I do that setup from the CompizConfig Settings Manager (ccsm) because the default Ubuntu preferences does not include such super advance settings. sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager Then start it with (from a command line or create a launcher icon): ccsm That opens settings, click on General » General Options then on the Focus & ...

I had similar problems with an Acer D270. The graphics were laggy and unacceptable. My solution was to switch to a lighter weight distro without 3d effects. Both Lubuntu and Xubuntu will work well with your system.

After reviewing your ccsm settings I think what you are missing is: [cubeaddon] s0_deformation=0 Open Compiz Config Settings manager. You will be warned to use caution. Click OK. Enter deform in the filter box then click the button shown below: Set Deformation to none. My settings are shown below. I'm not positive the other Cube Reflection and ...

Christopher Townsend said: What I think is happening here is that most fullscreen windows are unredirected meaning they basically get access to the GPU for performance. In these cases, no other window can be drawn which is what you are seeing. The good news is that we have a way to whitelist fullscreen windows to not unredirect or turn it off ...

This is a problem with your graphics cards and tearing. It is hard (if even possible) to fix this. There are workarounds, though. First off, disable your Skydome. That should repair this bug. At the very least, disable the animation feature. Secondly, make sure your graphics drivers are up-to-date. This doesn't apply to you, as you have an Intel card. It ...

Compiz has a limit on the amount of viewports: Increasing the Number of 'ViewPorts' Under apps>compiz>general>screen0>options, change the value of the size key. The minimal (and default) value is 4, the maximal value is 32. If so, can this ...

I found a work around that allows me to go to the last 2 desktops. And that is to use the wmctrl command and map them using general -> commands -> command line 1 and 2. Desktop 11: wmctrl -o 7680,2400 Desktop 12: wmctrl -o 11520,2400 I have a screen resolution of 3840x1200 (since i use 2 monitors with 1920x1200 resolution)

This is one of those catch 22 situations where you need to fix a problem but you can't get the screens that would fix the problem to display. On my machine everything worked in the guest account, but there was nothing I could do there that would allow changes to be permanent. I could not get to much of anything on the user screen (after all, that was the ...

I had a similar problem running on a virtual machine and it turned out that VMWare Workstation was capturing / to switch between active virtual machines. In WMWare Workstation > Virtual Machine > Preferences > Hot Keys, I changed the hot key combination to CTRL+ALT+Windows Key
