[Bug 1293384] Re: Compiz CPU usage dramatically increased in Ubuntu 14.04


Hi Thomas,

Ok, thanks for the additional info.  The comment about "modesetting"
confused me as this definitely enables llvmpipe and software rendering
and no GPU acceleration on both 12.04 & 14.04.  I didn't realize the
issue is when using the virtualized GPU driver in ESX.

We could probably add the VMWare 3D driver to our list of drivers that
should use low graphics mode.  This will disable the blur effect along
with some other effects.  If you can get the output from
/usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p when using the VMWare 3D driver, then
I could probably put together a test Unity package for you to try.
