[Bug 709709] [NEW] compiz not working proporly


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

using the oldfassioned gnome desktop on natty i have severel problems with compiz.
first of all i cant move windows around on the screen. grabbing the window at the top bar does nothing.
second normally you can disable compiz by selecting no visual effects adn then use metacitty, but that option is no longer available.
i am running an updated natty, and i have an ati grafixcard 
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS780M/RS780MN [Radeon HD 3200 Graphics]
using the free driver. i cant install the proporitarry driver because jockey closes unexpected, and i cant report that error cause of problems with libdrm-nouveau1a that cant be updated eather.

my only solution is starting the terminal and running nohup metacity
--replace manually in order to get a working desktop
