[Bug 197820] Re: No window decorations


Compiz crashed badly after normal update run.

After meddling with nvidia drivers, realized that the provided xorg-
nouveau drivers will not work on my nvidia geforce 7600.

Have Ubuntu 11.10, tried proprietary drivers and all possible

The "bug" in my case was: /etc/X11/xorg.conf
 default color depth 16 instead of 24

Lost 3 days of searching for the cause. Found solution by visiting "
Duplicate of bug #197820 "

Would it be inconvenient to display a BIG FAT Warning to users running
16bit depth: "Please set your screen resolution to 24bit, otherwise
compiz will crash" ???

What package would be a good candidate for this, i.e. whom should I bug?

Thank you.
