    Re: dialog boxes dont work with desktop effects

    I'm having the exact same issue running 8.10 on an HP G60-125NR. At first I thought the problem was only occuring with programs that connect to the internet, because I first noticed it trying to download/upload files to emails. Seems it's true with OpenOffice and text editor files as well.

    I'll continue to scour the web for solutions, and post here if I find anything.

    So I discovered (at least for me) that if you maximize the save dialogue window, the problem is resolved. I was also having the "frozen window" issue with Thunderbird, and maximizing the window also resolves that issue. Just something to make 8.10 more usable until we figure out a real fix.

    Seems to work on my G60-125NR running Compiz Fusion and Ubuntu Ultimate Edition 2.0 64 bit. Pic below.

    It works!!!!! I have been trying to figure this out for weeks. I have been on the compiz-fusion forum and this forum and have had no luck. Thank you so much for the workaround.

    Something I noticed was that I typed a name in the dialog box while in Compiz. I then remembered the dialog boxes dont work in Compiz. I switched to Metacity and the name I had typed was there. This makes me think that maybe the dialog boxes arent "frozen" they are just not redrawing.
