[Bug 1242115] Re: Black window borders, black terminal


I'm using 13.10 and a HP Pavilion dv6 with an Intel/NVIDIA GeForce
GT630M hybrid, where bumblebee is needed to make the proprietary driver

With this configuration I get the black window border / black terminal
symptom in Compiz consistently. I am not sure what the trigger was, but

It wasn't triggered when I upgraded from 13.04 to 13.10, but it happened
some time after.

(because I definitely tried to do this).
