[Bug 764330] Re: Move window annoying slow with compiz


This whole mouse-polling thing might be onto something.

I have a Phenom II X4, with an ATI Radeon HD 5870. Moving windows and
icons was jerkier than Kathryn Hepburn on bad acid. My mouse is a Razer
DeathAdder Respawn (the 3500 dpi version) which I normally have set to
900 dpi, and running a pollrate at 1000hz.

This mouse remembers the settings between boots, so I dualbooted into
Windows, lowered the polling rate to the default 125hz and rebooted into
Ubuntu. Lo and behold, dragging windows and icons was SUBSTANTIALLY
smoother. Still not as smooth as before I upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04
but now it's actually tolerable.
