[Bug 1454651] Re: Ubuntu Mate with Window Manager Marco fails to properly resume from Suspend on DELL XPS13


Ohh, Jeez, what have I gotten into with this laptop - my advice: if you
want it for something else than tinkering with kernels and drivers, look
elsewhere! And I thought, when it comes with a DELL installed system, it
will work. Slapping myself ...

As so many things I so far have taken for granted don't work, I thought
it is not a problem to ruin the laptop with untested kernels. So here we
go, with Ubuntu-Mate still being my desktop:

Kernel 4.1.0-040100rc3-generic : 
Marco and Compiz do both work correctly after a resume from suspend
(but even after some - not all - cold boots, I had no cursor on the desktop. happened with both Marco and Compiz)

With this kernel, there is no wireless at all! With the original kernel
3.13.0-52 I had at least 5GHz, but now there is neither 2.4 nor 5,
Though the proprietary Broadcom STA driver is still installed and marked
as active! Bluetooth does not recognize any devices, and even the
laptop, with its BT adapter name set to "always visible", is not seen by
other computers.

Kernel 3.16.0-37-generic:
Marco does NOT work after resume from suspend, Compiz does. Same behaviour as with original kernel. At least wireless is working on 5GHz (but not on 2.4GHz). Bluetooth not working at all and there is no driver under Additional Driver  and non is offered to install.

Kernel 3.13.0-52-generic (the one I started with)
Wireless still only on 5GHz, BT not connecting to anything - though it is behaving as if it does work. On some boots even the keyboard and the touchpad isn't working, though an external usb-mouse is.

What a mess!

  Ubuntu Mate with Window Manager Marco fails to properly resume from
  Suspend on DELL XPS13

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have the DELL XPS13 laptop which came factory pre-installed with
  Ubuntu 14.04. I changed the desktop to Ubuntu Mate. This had the
  Window Manager "Marco (Simple desktop effects)" activated.

  Whenever I went into Suspend, the laptop did resume, but the desktop
  was not redrawn, no panels, no menus and submenus, no buttons. When I
  moved the mouse pointer over the places where I assumed the elements
  to be, some of them did show up, and were clickable. After a reboot,
  all was normal.

  WORKAROUND: System > Control Center > MATE Tweak > Windows > Window
  Manager from Marco to Compiz.
