[Bug 729979] Re: [nvidia] Windows appear blank white


Hi there...

Finally I got a solution: I installed emerald-0.9.5 from source this
morning and the blank white windows are gone, focus-animation "dodge" is
working fine, awesome!

The further hard- & software-configuration is like described in my post
#152 as "Configuration #3".

To compile emerald-0.9.5 for ubuntu 12.04.1 I followed the description
at "http://handytutorial.com/install-emerald-in-ubuntu-12-04-12-10/";.

The first attempt failed with make complaining missing dependencies. I
found the fix at
"https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/emerald/+bug/968112"; in post
#7, there is a further environment-variable to set before: 'export
"LIBS=-ldl -lm"'. Great thanks to user "MC Return"!

After that, the package built successfully (I used "checkinstall"
instead of "make install" to get a installable package).

I'm very happy to have emerald back in 12.04 and that the blank white
windows are gone ;-) Thank you all out there for your great work and
wish you a nice weekend...
