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


Hi guys, thought you might like to know we've developed a workaround and
hope to get it included in the beta release. If it doesn't make it in
time for the beta it'll be in the repos right after the beta release.

If you want to test it now you can go to
http://people.ubuntu.com/~amaranth/compiz/ then download and install the
two .deb files there. You'll still have to go into
System->Preferences->CompizConfig Settings Manager and uncheck
Unredirect Fullscreen Windows in General Options since the previous
'fix' enabled this option for you. Once you have it installed reload
compiz (run `compiz &` in a terminal) and try to go to the Guest Session
in the user switcher (should be up by your clock). If the patch is
working correctly you'll see your screensaver when you log out of the
guest session instead of a white screen.

If you test this please comment here to let me know how it worked for
