View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem with "lingering" previews in Compiz Windows Preview

May 1st, 2009, 08:50 AM

I have enabled Window Previews in Compiz. If I move my mouse left to right along the taskbar, all the previews pop up and down as expected, but if I move my mouse up, over the preview then down to the next, all the previews stay visible, overlapping open windows and each other.

Difficult to explain, but not very pretty! I've attached a screenshot. Oh, and I have left all the Window Previews settings at their defaults.

Output from compiz-check script:

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
