[Bug 1055936] Re: Unity is unusuably slow with fallback software rendering (LLVMpipe)


Based on comment #15, I'm going to close this Fix Released since it's no
long unusable.  I agree that running Compiz/Unity on llvmpipe is not fun
and miss Unity 2d for these types of systems.

  Unity is unusuably slow with fallback software rendering (LLVMpipe)

Bug description:
  I have Quantal Beta 1 installed in a Virtual Box VM, since unity-2d is
  no longer available it should be doing 3D rendering in software as a
  fallback since Virtual Box doesn't expose 3D hardware acceleration
  properly.  Any form of 3D animation takes, roughly, five to ten times
  as long as it should.  Opening the dash by clicking the Dash Home
  button takes about twenty seconds and you can watch the little spinner
  in the corner step through its animation in discreet chunks.  Opening
  a new window of any application it's also possible to watch the window
  opening animation in stages.  Operations within an application,
  scrolling, etc. aren't noticeably slower than on Precise, so I'm
  inclined to call this a unity bug but it's entirely possible it's not.

  I'm keeping the Quantal VM around for testing, so if you need further
  information or debugging output, let me know and I'll be happy to
  provide it.
