Using Cairo 2.2.0-4 on Ubuntu 10.10 with Compiz.

Hi there,

Recently i experience some issues with the Show Desktop Applet.
After using showing desktop, some windows do not maximize back. Clicking showing desktop again does not bring back windows, clicking on the application's icon either.
The windows application seems to disappear also form the application switcher as if the application had been closed. Cairo Dock still indicates the application is active however. A right-click on the launcher and "show" brings the window back to the screen. There seems however then to be an offset, i.e. the window as it appears and the response to the cursor are not aligned. I need to close the application and re-start it in order to solve the problem.

Any idea? Is this a Cairo vs. Compiz issue?

Cheers!
Benjamin

No easy to say :-/
Do you have this bug with any windows? Also with metacity?
metacity --replace

Typically: the bug is not occurring since i posted this message
I can tell you more if/when it occurs again.

What will the metacity --replace do?

It uses another wm (metacity) instead of compiz.

If you want to re-use compiz => Alt+F2 and launch "compiz --replace"

probably a bug in Compiz, Matttbe's suggestion could make things clear
