    Cube with Compiz has issues on Ubuntu 12.04

    Hello
    I own a HP envy 17 and recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 in a small partition just for testing. My main OS so far is Ubuntu 11.04.
    Ubuntu 12.04 is fine and I quickly solved a small wifi problem that was very slow.
    Still Cube with compiz has one annoying issue: When I use gnome the fallback mode and I switch desktop by clicking one of the desktops cube basically the rotation happens ok BUT in the new desktop there is an annoying quick flash of the applications opened on the previous desktop and if you click back you have another flash of the backaground image on the other desktop. if no programs are opened and desktops are empty switching desktops is smooth but whenever there is something on screen we have the annoying quick flash of the images of other desktops and disappearing very quickly. I hope you guy understand. It's just an annoying graphic problem that I do not have on Ubuntu 11.04.

    I'm interested in this too, as i have the same issue. I recently upgraded to 12.04 from 11.10, and i think i recall it also happening in 11.10.

    Yes it also happened with 11.10 , that's why I was still using 11.04.

    There is a patch for that bug released a few days ago, but you have to apply to the source and recompile. Or else you can wait for 12.10 which is what I'm doing. I can't seem to find any of the links I had for it but google will get you there.

    Happening for me as well with a fresh install of 12.04 LTS. Looking forward to the fix in the next update.

    This bug started in 11.10 when they implemented the compiz Unity plugin and
    I don't think this will be fixed 'til 12.10.
    There is a testing ppa for compiz
    https://launchpad.net/~vanvugt/+archive/compiz-preproposed
    I wouldn't recommend it though.
    It fixes the flicker but brings in other bugs.
    Unfocused windows turn white and the windows become jerky when moving like in 11.10.
    See this BUG

    Those bugs with the compiz-proposed ppa only happen for Nvidia cards. For Intel and AMD it's working great. If someone doesn't have an Nvidia GPU there's no problem in using it.

    I'm running a Radeon HD5450 graphics card - will that fix work okay with this card?

    Have to admit, i'm a bit torn; try to fix something that isn't really a major issue and run the risk of messing something else up? Or wait for it to be fixed in 12.10?

    Hmmmmmm.

    I got an Intel GM965, and everything's great. No one has reported any issue with Radeon cards until this moment, so I think it's worth trying. You can always downgrade if something goes bad.
