[Bug 1458327] Re: Compiz on Ubuntu Mate 15.04 fails on DELL XPS 13 (9343) with external monitor


#Jason:  strange that you say the issue persists, because it seems
solved in my case!

When reporting the bug I had on my DELL XPS13(9343) installed UbuntuMATE
15.04. I have now upgrade to UbuntuMATE 15.10 (kernel 4.2.0-16-generic
#19-Ubuntu x86_64) and both the external monitor issue and the suspend
issue are gone:

Using the MiniDisplayport-to-VGA/HDMI adapter (see orig. post) I tested
both an external VGA and a HDMI monitor (the latter actually a DVI
monitor DELL U2412M connected via a HDMI-to-DVI converter). I tested all
3 Window Managers (Marco, Metacity and Compiz). And every time I also
tried suspend.

In all 6 combinations both internal + external monitor and suspend

There was one glitch, though. Sometimes, when using MATE Tweak to switch
from compiz to metacity the screen freezes. Mouse pointer is visible,
but nothing can be clicked. I can do CTRL-ALT-F2 and login, and e.g.
kill Xorg, and it continues.

However, this is not reproducible at will, but I have observed it
several times when playing around with the window managers.
