Compiz Freeze evreything

Hello, i am using Arch Linux 64bit with XFCE4 as DE.
I have installed the following:

pacman -S compiz
pacman -S compiz-fusion
pacman -S compiz-fusion-plugins-main compiz-fusion-plugins-extra

After I tried to run it (fusion-icon), but everything is frozen only the mouse cursor is movable.

I have read and the Compiz Troubleshooting, i try some solutions without result at all.

Re: Compiz Freeze evreything

Same issue here with nvidia. I was able yesterday to downgrade the driver and fix the problem, but today's kernel update shot that down. I guess I will wait until a new driver comes out.

Re: Compiz Freeze evreything

It seems to be the same bug we´re talking about at:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=116569
So, it´s not Gnome, but most probably GTK, if XFCE suffers from the same problem.
Sad to hear downgrading nvidia driver is not longer possible, too bad.

Re: Compiz Freeze evreything

You can downgrade and add the following to /etc/pacman.conf, which will tell pacman to ignore kernel+nvidia drivers updates (you can still upgrade everything else). Not a permanent solution of course, but you can remove it when there are even newer versions and see if the issue is fixed or when you find another solution to your problem.

# Pacman won't upgrade packages listed in IgnorePkg and members of IgnoreGroup
IgnorePkg   = kernel26 kernel26-headers nvidia nvidia-utils

Re: Compiz Freeze evreything

You can also use Nouveau driver... That's the solution i've chosen for using the new kernel with Gnome3 (and other composite wm) and a NVidia card. It lags quite a bit when moving windows on Gnome3 but i don't remember it was slow with Compiz
