    Nvidia white/black window bug still persists.

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...iz/+bug/729979

    It says that fix has been released in compiz - 1:0.9.9~daily13.02.19-0ubuntu1 (post 162) But it is still the same here with Nvidia driver 313.

    (Upgrade Compiz with https://launchpad.net/~smspillaz/+ar...z-experimental, it is still the same with regard to black windows, but fixes http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2128354)

    Two days and not a single comment. Does no one experiencing this problem any more or everyone has stopped buying Nvidia?

    Saw this a couple of days ago and was waiting to check wherether I still see this bug this too. I do still have this bug on a completely updated raring installarion with an nvidia GeForce GT630 graphics card. I am using the version 313 proprietary driver installed via the additional drviers tab of the software sources set up.

    Have you reported this as a bug?

    Yes have restarted compiz with compiz --replace ccp & . This surely happens anyway with every restart (?). The problem still persists as of newly updated on 26 March.

    There is already a bug report, I have provided the link in my first post. Here it is again
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...iz/+bug/729979

    Problem is that it says a fix has been released and the raring daily build actually has a higher version of compiz. I have added another comment but so far no one has responded. I am also using the Nvidia 313 driver, I will try another one later and see if the problem still persists (but I am needing to reinstall because I have repartitioned my hard drive)

    Hmm... may be because I am dense, I am not sure how your bug has to do with the bug in this thread.

    yes, this sucks, the problem very much so still exist, I get a black window almost every time I restore a minimized window.

    Re: Nvidia white/black window bug still persists.

    Odd that there are so few replies to this thread. Do other people using Nvidia and Unity experience this problem??

    After repartitioning my hard drive I have done a reinstall using a newer image two days ago and so far I have not been able to install any Nvidia driver so I can't test it now.

    There is still no response on the launchpad thread regarding the status of this bug (the bug was assigned to Sam Spilsbury but he is no longer working for Canonical, I emailed him and only got an "I don't know".) May need to open a new bug if the issue persists.
