    compiz segfault error on Dell Laptop with Gnome Desktop

    I run Ubuntu 16.04 with the gnome desktop and it has run fine for months until yesterday.

    On booting, my computer started complaining about a compiz error. The result was that the desktop kept icons disappeared and reappeared in a cycle about every 10 seconds or so. I was able to open a terminal during one of the cycles and downloaded the XFCE desktop which I am now running.

    The first mention of the problem from the syslog looks like this:
