[Bug 862430] Re: window flicker for a short time after switching workspaces


OK, i broke it again - mmm then fixed it.  So now i know how i rebroke
it before.

I was wanting the dodgy behavior back in unity so i used this dudes
repo:  sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ikarosdev/unity-revamped  (which
makes dodgy work great) BUT it re-introduces the flashy / flicker bug in
compiz rotate cube.

Steps to fix (again)
1.)  Purge out repo that caused issue if you happen to know
2.)  Install Synaptic if you havent already
3.)  In Synaptic use the 'force to version' for compiz and compiz-core forcing them to compiz=1:
4.)  If you purged then you lost unity, compiz + plugins, etc.  otherwise remove them
5.)  Apply the commands below (provided by sogerc1 and mfwhite5 

 sudo apt-get install compiz=1: compiz-
core=1: compiz-
gnome=1: compiz-
plugins=1: compiz-
plugins=1: compiz-plugins-

While this bug is annoying to some, i cannot use ubuntu when this is
happening because it makes me want to puke and have a seizure.  AGAIN -
thanks to all who has helped in identifying and resolving this issue!!!!
