[Bug 153204] Re: [MASTER] Applications are flickering/flashing in full screen mode


OK, like I said performance is bad with disabled unredirect fullscreen windows.
Thats bad for:
- 3D Games,
- even Video performance (Mythtv) is worse (Video Playback speed feels "wavy")
- other visual applications that are used to display "smooth" movements

set Unredirect Fullscreen windows to "false" makes following better:
- firefox
- inkscape
- image viewer
- audio player

I am personally in the first group. But I think most ubuntuusers are in
the last group.

I tested enabling/disabling the option while playing fullscreen video (via script):
It does not work. The settings will be assumed not until your move the mouse: "flickering in any case"

It would be nice to have a program, detecting what type of fullscreen
application is going to be started and then enable/disable Unredirect
Fullscreen windows.
