Marcin, seems to be a bug with Unity/Compiz. I have to restart Unity until it reports:

compiz (core) - Info: Unity is fully supported by your hardware.
compiz (core) - Info: Unity is fully supported by your hardware.

Rather than:

compiz (core) - Info: Unity is not supported by your hardware. Enabling software rendering instead (slow).

However none of the Desktop effects seem to work anyway, seems to always be in software rendering mode.

I can't use Compiz Settings Manager, as it doesn't work under Chrubuntu 12.10. So I can only make a few changes from the Command line, but none of the effects that use 3D hardware seem to work, even when:

 compiz (core) - Info: Unity is fully supported by your hardware.
compiz (core) - Info: Unity is fully supported by your hardware.

On a side note, the screen artifacts seen when running OpenGL ES Apps go away if no window manager is running, tho I'm not sure what help that is. The Screen Artifacts also effect the performance, I get a score of 35 in glmark2-es2 with artifacts and a score of 135 without artifacts.
