Having scanned the various sources to check out the issue with compiz memory leak, I have not found any solution to reduce it. It keeps growing and beyond a point, I have to restart the PC.
My config: AMD FX 4100 Quad core, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB SSD, Ubuntu 14.04, 64 bit, fully patched Display card - GE FORCE 8400 GS - connected two monitors
Any help is appreciated. This card works fine in Ubuntu 12.04 with compiz memory utilization hovering around 65 MB. There is no default display on the motherboard and I have to use this external display card.
Thanks for your help !
