    Default KDE 4.5 composite and games

    Since I have upgraded to KDE 4.5 I can't play games (native or wine) without disabling composite before start playing.
    When I start a game its window begins to shiver (to tremble or to shake... not sure) and so I have to disable composite first and then relaunch the game.
    I never had to do this in KDE 4.4.

    What may be the reason?

    I am not sure actually - but I do recommend disabling composite before starting a (3D) game since it seems to alter the performance quite a lot. There's a simple Plasmoid which will let you toggle composite easily ('kde4-plasmoid-toggle_compositing').

    That's exactly the way I'm doing with 3D games. I recommend it too.
