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


> or more likely you are forced to update because these packages are
unmaintained and eventually it breaks the apt-get dependency chain, undo
the hold with these commands...

It happened.  I did a dist-upgrade, Unity updated, Compiz didn't.  I
ended up with a Desktop with no Unity.  Compiz errors showed...

compiz (core) - Error: Couldn't load plugin '/usr/lib/compiz/libunityshell.so' : /usr/lib/compiz/libunityshell.so: undefined symbol: _ZN10CompOption7setNameEPKcNS_4TypeE
compiz (core) - Error: Couldn't load plugin 'unityshell'

until I...

echo compiz install | sudo dpkg --set-selections
echo compiz-core install | sudo dpkg --set-selections
sudo apt-get upgrade

No more Cube again...  It's only being a year now, look at the first
post.  At this point the options for a user are, no-dist upgrade, or set
unity on dpkg hold, or no cube.  I'm surprised things worked this long
with the unmaintained repo.  For the impatient, well, be patient,
eventually we will all move on to something else and not care anymore.
