Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 492198
metacity (+compositing) terminates gnome session when suspending
Last modified: 2014-06-18 05:11:10 EDT
Description of problem:
If compositing is turned on, metacity causes the GNOME session to be aborted on suspend. On resume, the user is presented with the GDM login screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on compositing (apps->metacity->general->compositing_manager)
On resume, user presented with GDM screen
On resume, the user's desktop is presented. This still works if compositing is disabled
This used to work in F-10 (and perhaps F-11 alpha)
Sorry, we can't support the metacity compositor (it's only available in gconf for a reason). Until gnome shell arrives, compiz is the recommended compositing solution.
Feel free to file a bug upstream.
