[i945GME] Kwin compositing fail on maverick

Bug Description

Binary package hint: xserver-xorg-video-intel

Kubuntu 10.10 Beta

Compositing is off at start. Enabling it (and even removing blur from the list of effects) resulted in compositing being enabled, but no affects that I tried in the short time before the screen locked up (mouse would move, but that was it) worked. This is a regression from 10.04.

Using the mesa from the sarvatt/mesa PPA is signifcantly better. Still effects disabled by default (I guess blacklisted), but once manually enabled, all I tried work just fine, including blur.

Seeing something similar with a GMA 3100 chipset (I think: lspci says: VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 10) ). Compositing in Google Earth works fine, however. Is it worth my testing the ppa version of mesa? If I sit it out, will mesa be updated in the main repositories soon?

The release team is currently evaluating the freeze exception. The more positive feedback the get the more likely it is to get in.

Alright, I've installed the PPA version, and I think it improves matters, although after a while, I still hit a situation where applications weren't accepting mouse input (I could still move and resize the top window with the mouse). I don't know if that's part of the same issue, or something different. Is there a more systematic way to test than wildly clicking around a load of applications?

Based on your previous comment, I'd guess that this is now fixed in Maverick.

The lack of mouse input is going to be a separate issue. If the windows are being repainted - and given that you can resize them, it seems that they are - then mesa's job is finished :).

Please feel free to file another bug about the mouse input issue - particularly if you can find a way to make it happen regularly.
