    I seem to recall this is not uncommon, it rings a bell with me in days gone - trying compiz in kde3. I seem to recall logout and back in restores.

    Compiz in kde4.2 however is much better, but that's using kwin/compiz

    If you are using 11.1, then I can say that I have been suffering that for a while too or at least something similar, in that the window borders disappeared too.

    The final cure, after having updated Compiz many times was to uninstall Compiz (and fusion) completely, reboot (purely to ensure that it was gone), re-install Compiz and fusion, taking care to get it soley from the X11/XGL repo, and reboot.

    Personnally I dont like all the rebooting, but it was an attempt to make sure the changes I was making were commited.

    Now I am a mostly happy bunny.

    Good luck

    Hi sexyed123. Can't promise anything, but see if the following works for you (if using compiz):

    Launch Compiz config Settings Manager from

    Application Launcher > Utilities > Desktop menu

    Then navigate to

    Utility > Workarounds (click on Workarounds) > disable Legacy Fullscreen Support
