Unexpected results with Shelf plugin when using the Desktop Cube

Bug #212788 reported by Oleg Vaskevich on 2008-04-06
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
compiz (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

Hello, I have upgraded to Ubuntu Hardy 8.10, and using the ccsm configuration tool enabled the plugin "shelf".

When scaling a window down and enabling the cube, ie moving it, the "thumbnail" becomes black and the border is shown. This becomes worse if 3d Windows is enabled. I am using an ATI Radeon 7200 card. Attached are the outputs of lspci -v and my xorg.conf file.

Hi Oleg
do you still experience this with the latest update in Hardy Heron?, could you please include a screenshot demonstrating this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, I have installed all updates, compiz is 1:0.7.2-0ubuntu2. Here is a screenshot of how the shelf plugin looks regulary.

And here it is with the cube, notice the black frame and window. I have 3d windows plugin on, but the same thing happens even without it. Perhaps it's because of my Ati Radeon 7200 card? Check xorg.conf for more.


We were wondering if this is still an issue for you. Can you try with the latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.

I can give info on this bug: it's still there.

My graphics card is an Intel X4500HD (reported by lspci as an "Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)").

I'm using the X-Updates PPA. Attached is a screenshot.

My xorg.conf.

Confirmed, when activating shelf and cube and making a window small with shelf doing a free rotate with cube makes the entire screen go crazy. Making the window full size again fixes the problem.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to look at all reported bugs in a timely manner. There have been many changes in Ubuntu since that time you reported the bug and your problem may have been fixed with some of the updates. It would help us a lot if you could test it on a currently supported Ubuntu version. When you test it and it is still an issue, kindly upload the updated logs by running apport-collect <bug #> and any other logs that are relevant for this particular issue.
