Current Operating System: Linux EdenII 2.6.32-25-generic-pae #45-Ubuntu SMP Sat Oct 16 21:01:33 UTC 2010 i686
Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-25-generic-pae root=UUID=e3e8a10f-948e-4973-b428-38c2cb5b2794 ro splash

Graphics card info:
ATI Radeon HD 2600 pro
2D driver version: 8.78.6
driver packaging version: 8.762-100803a-103698C-ATI
open GL version: 3.3.10243

compiz version 0.9.2 (compiled from git)

I'm unsure if this bug is reproducable with other hardware or versions of compiz, but in 0.9.2 if you attach a second mouse and xinput create-master new then reattach the slave pointer to the master, the new master is unable to move windows at all or perform various other functions. With metacity it can so I think this bug directly affects compiz 0.9.2

There is no MPX support in compiz yet, this will come in due time.

I see, I was under the impression it was working due to a few videos I found showing you using mpx on an old version of compiz I'll go ahead and mark this as invalid.

Changed in compiz (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid

Yeah. That was based on some patches I did in 2008 to get it to work,
although with compiz++ they don't apply anymore.

It should be simple to write a simple MPX system though.
