[Bug 1095445] Re: multiple dell comp. compiz will not run on them.


*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1066764 ***

Thanks, that attachment suggests the problem with compiz is:

X Error of failed request: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for
operation) Major opcode of failed request: 153 (GLX) Minor opcode of
failed request: 3 (X_GLXCreateContext) Serial number of failed request:
32 Current serial number in output stream: 33

That makes it a duplicate of bug 1066764. There you will find a
workaround however that workaround will make graphics quite slow. And
even if this bug did not occur, you would find the experience very slow
because your integrated Intel graphics are not advanced enough to handle
Unity natively.

For the best Unity experience therefore you will need to install a
graphics card. Or just stick to XFCE if it's working for you already.
