This question already has an answer here:
I have a problem with compiz since a recent update, it uses 160 to 170% of cpu according to
top, the laptop's fan is going full speed. And it goes up with time, after 30 minutes it's over 270%.
Here's the apt log from when it started: https://pastebin.com/giJsZsDj
About my laptop, it has 16GB RAM, Intel® Core™ i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz × 8 processor, a Quadro M1000M graphic card and running 64-bits ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS.
I can see with
nvidia-smi that compiz is using the graphic cards (another member here had issues with their drivers).
Changing options from CCSM did not solve the issue.
Any idea how to fix this?
metacity --replace to temporarily use something else than compiz, but compiz keeps on running anyway even if I try to kill it before.
None of the answers marked as duplicate help me in any way, it seems to be a completely different issue (no more related to those 3 or 5 years old you mentioned).
