Compiz Wobbly Windows (side) effect

Here is an interesting side effect to watch out for if you have enabled the Compiz-fusion wobbly windows visual effect. When a window is placed on a certain corner of the desktop, almost overlapping the next desktop, it develops this nervous twitch. (See the video)

Please do check if you can reproduce this issue on your desktop and post a comment.


  1. I've disabled window snapping, and this side effect is gone

  2. Good job ley, guess you have zeroed in on the problem! Perhaps the compiz plugin writers would fix the issue soon.

    I posed this question about the
    Compiz Wobbly effect to the developers didn't get any response till date.
