[Bug 772271] [NEW] on login, no matter gnome or unity, compiz freezes the screen and I have to replace compiz with metacity to be able to work.


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

I upgraded to ubuntu natty beta yesterday ( 27th April). (The upgrade
aborted near the end becaus of VirtualBox package, so I restarted the
computer by myself.)  on login to unity or gnome I noticed the screen
freezes so I guessed it may be compiz. I replaced compiz with metacity
and gnome works as usually. unity needed compiz, so unity didn't work -
no panels, just icons. the freeze occurs every time I start compiz. if I
start compiz with --indirect-rendering, compiz works fine and still 3d
accelerated which I can't understand. I use the nvidia current version
driver for my graphic card. If I disable the opengl and composite
plugins via ccsm, compiz runs OK, without 3D effects of course.
