    "Compositing too slow"... what? o.0

    Hey, I've been having a little trouble recently with my logon. It works fine, but it's taking longer than usual. I'm running Kubuntu Jaunty with KDE4, and whenever I log in, after an initial pause of upwards of 10 seconds, it'll give me the message "Compositing was too slow and has been cancelled. If this is only a temporary problem, you can resume compositing by pressing 'shift+ctrl+F2'." I have no idea what could be causing this or how to fix it. It works fine after it gives the message, but I'd like to get back to the lightning-fast logon I'm used to. Thanks!

    Compositing should be related to the window manager. Do you use Compiz?

    You can turn off compositing (desktop effects) permanently by right clicking on a window title and going to configure window behavior, uncheck the "enable desktop effects" box. Then it won't try to enable them every time. See if that helps the logon speed.

    Thanks for the help. It turns out I had some conflicting desktop effects that my system had to resolve before getting everything started. Thanks for the help and the pointers!
