compiz 64bit - maximizing.

Asked by Charlieb000 on 2011-03-15

I am using 10.04 64bit.

running 32bit live cd does not present the problem:
there is a momentary hang when maximizing windows
i also describe this bug in Bug #588982

entering the CLI text found here for disabling compiz causes problem to go away:
/usr/bin/metacity --replace &

assuming problem is only in 64bit, and maximizing is the only one i have found a problem with.

looking for more permanent method of disabling.

Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at if you are uncertain if they are bugs. For help on reporting bugs, see

with metacity --replace, you temporarily substitute compiz with metacity, if you want a definitive solution remove compiz using synaptiuc package manager

i reinstalled the operating system (for other reasons) and this appears to have solved it, i do not know the cause of the problem (only suspect is a conflicting package) so leaving the "bug" open for now. the permanent method of disabling was removing the compiz package entirely.

other text which i think you removed when converting to a question was that during the hang i could click on the applications at the top and it would open after the hang was complete. and cannot move windows around during the hang.

Can you help with this problem?
