Windows decorations disappear after few minutes
Last modified: 2014-06-18 05:09:32 EDT
Description of problem:
While using compiz/nvidia windows decorations disappear after minutes or hours -
sometimes it's just a few minutes, sometimes they disappear after a few hours -
I don't know what's related to it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
hard to reproduce, but after minutes / hours it happens, usually it happens 2-3
times per day, but today it happened 5 times within 2 hours.
I use latest nvidia drivers from freshrpms.net (don't bite, I just want to have
eye candy desktop ;-)) with fedora/updated packages, windows decoration is
Clearlooks - default one. My everyday work includes browser (Firefox 184.108.40.206
from ftp.mozilla.org as that one shipped with Fedora renders fonts incorrectly),
Zend Studio 5.5.0, Evolution, OpenOffice. Sometimes I use virtual machine
Hardware: Dell Latitude D620 with T7200 Core 2 Duo 2GHz, 2GB RAM, nvidia on
board, display resolution is 1440x900.
What I have noticed - usually windows decorations disappear when I am trying to
close an application (ie. vmware, open office, or even nautilus windows) - but
it happens randomly - sometimes I can work for 5 hours and everything is all
right, sometimes it happens every 5-10 minutes. Looks like there is no rule -
just happens :)
if you need any more information - you're more then welcome.
I've noticed, that it only happens while compiz is running. If I don't "Desktop
Effects", windows decorations are fine and they don't disappear.
it is fixed in current release, so I am closing this bug.
