I have openSUSE 11.1, I can run vlc and compiz just fine but everytime I close vlc my screen blinks a little and compiz is disabled. So I always have to manually enable compiz again. I searched around but I can’t find a solution.
Close QT4 app will all crash compiz, please install compiz from Index of /repositories/X11:/XGL/openSUSE_11.1. But I find emeral can not run.
VLC in Gnome also crashes compiz… as does VirtualBox. This is getting annoying.
…as does closing Skype (which is also QT4 application).
Reinstalling compiz from abovementioned repository helped in my case.
