Description Sergio Pascual 2009-03-13 12:06:07 EDT
I have two monitors attached two a nVidia Quadro FX 570. On startup of the gnome session, compiz is active in the first screen, but in the second, windows haven't got decoration, gtk-window-decorator is dead. If I disable and enable the efects it returns and works well until I log out.

Still segfaults in the second monitor with compiz-0.7.8-19.fc11.x86_64
Comment 6 Matěj Cepl 2009-11-05 13:23:22 EST
Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages. For packages from updates-testing repository you can use command

yum upgrade --enablerepo='*-updates-testing'

Alternatively, you can also try to test whether this bug is reproducible with the upcoming Fedora 12 distribution by downloading LiveMedia of F12 Beta available at http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/ . By using that you get all the latest packages without need to install anything on your computer. For more information on using LiveMedia take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD .

Please, if you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.

If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

Fedora 11 fully updated plus packages from updates-testing. Compiz still crashes in the second monitor on startup. If I disable and enable desktop effects afterwards, it works flawlessly until logout.

Preupgraded to Fedora 12, compiz still crashes in the second display
Comment 9 Matěj Cepl 2009-11-17 07:01:58 EST
Switching incorrect assignees to the default one.

Hi Sergio.

Could you please check:

Adel, our maintainer, pushed in F12/Updates-testing a fix for this issue.

On a fully upgraded F12, could you run:

yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update compiz compiz-fusion-extras
compiz-fusion as root.

And report your feedback regarding this gtk-decoration to BZ#546172 and eventually at http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F12/FEDORA-2009-13732

And happy 2009 ending.
