[Bug 316214] Re: compiz.real chrashed with segfault


Don't be so quick to dismiss this as a problem with compiz. It's certainly not the most efficient way to manage a desktop, but the code has come a long way and isn't the resource hogging, bug-ridden monster it once may have been.
This but is probably related to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers-180/+bug/392850 and https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/502625 and https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/216204 and https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/473126.

For most people having this problem, compiz itself does seem to be
working ("compiz --replace" seems to work in most cases, after log in).
Honestly I think it has more to do with gdm or gnome and how compiz is
loaded.  It looks like a problem of permissions (compiz may not be
allowed some resource) or the order in which compiz is loaded (perhaps a
service it depends on is not running yet) or both.
