Been using this fix for about a week now. The whole GUI is a lot more responsive. It seems to solve a lot of the lag / hangs in accessing menus and especially when working in LO Calc (mainly when changing cell formats in pretty large worksheets with a lot of formulas).
I do still get some hangs within Calc when switching from one sheet to another; either through the menu or through the bar.
Those hangs are always accompanier by intensive disc access. When I check the system monitor there is no or hardly any swap file.

Running 12.04.02 amd64, LO 403ubuntu1-precise on a Dell 131L (AMD cpu and chipset, ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 gpu)

cheers

Hi,

 After use compiz with this patch, I found the password dialog won't show in gnome-screensaver after the screen turn off when inactive for sometimes.

The bug #1207639 is caused by this one.

Daniel van Vugt (vanvugt) wrote :

Bin,

Ubuntu (millions of users) have been using the fix for this bug for almost 9 months without an issue. Whatever you think is causing bug 1207639, it is probably not the fix for this bug.

Daniel van Vugt (vanvugt) wrote :

Oh. Unless you mean bug 1207639 is caused by the absence of the fix for this bug....

Bin Li (binli) wrote :

Daniel,

 What I mean is that after I upgrade from 1:0.9.7.12-0ubuntu1 to 1:0.9.7.12-0ubuntu2, I met the issue which password dialog can't show up, you can also input the password, then it will login into the desktop.

 I also find the #1053895 in 0.9.9 might be a fix for our issue.

Daniel,

 I find the the reason, the blacklist_precise_mesa80_intel_nouveau.patch allow 9.0.x Mesa, if I edit the /usr/share/compiz/opengl.xml, and remove the '$', the issue disappeared.
