[Bug 1075792] Re: Slow Unity 3D performance in 12.10 Quantal Quetzal


Sorry folks, as part of the bug clean up effort before 16.04 I'm marking
this as invalid again as the bug title concerns 12.10 which is out of
support.  If you can still reproduce this on a supported release please
open a new bug.

  Slow Unity 3D performance in 12.10 Quantal Quetzal

Bug description:
  My ThinkPad T43 works quite well with Ubuntu 12.04, but with a clean
  install of 12.10, Unity is slow (I can type in the Unity Dash Home and
  then count the seconds as my letters slowly appear in sequence),
  sometimes freezes (when I close an application, the icon becomes faded
  in the Dash but doesn't disappear, and the application window just
  stays on the screen but I can't interact with it), and text develops
  little lines through it after suspend and resume (this was also
  present in 12.04 and can be fixed with a modification to the
  xorg.conf... something about debug-wait... but it would be nice if I
  didn't have to make that change on the whole batch of T43's I'm going
  to sell).

  Help appreciated :-)
