View Full Version : [ubuntu] 11.04 'Classic' desktop speedup for dragging windows

For what its worth: Probably mentioned someplace but I did not find it.

I am using 11.04 64 with the Classic desktop. I found that dragging windows was terrible rough. Consumed CPU when dragged.

I loaded CompizConfig Settings Manager.
Go to the bottom where the 'Work Arounds' are.
Enable 'Don't wait for video sync'.

Made a huge difference for me. Able to make it look and work like 10.10 for the most part. But I like a clean old Gnome look and feel.

Q9450, Nvidia 9800GT 512k.

Just wanted to add, you may also need to tick Sync to VBlank in OpenGL aswell if not already ticked. These combined improved mine dramatically. Nvidia 9600GT.
