The preview is good, just not the right place.

on natty beta 1 i experience this

I add that in the second part of the video where we see that re open the browser window, you see that the browser window is not seen correctly, but this is not a real problem only video

Hi there,

I'm using Compiz on Ubuntu 12.04 and I too cannot see any preview of minimized windows, only of active ones, which is of course rather useless. I also tried to check the option "Keep previews of minimized windows" in Compiz>Workarounds, but to no avail. I still don't see previews of minimized windows.

I have the same problem.

This bug occurs in wily as well but not with every minimized window and sometimes with freshly open windows that are not minimized.

It is not working for me at all. Minimized nor maximized.
Tested in wily.
