Description

Hi,
When I start the QGIS desktop 2.8.1 on my Linux Ubuntu 12.04 LTS laptop (32 bits), a trembling empty window frame appears on my screen, and dances through all the four desktops.
QGIS is not usable at all because the frame is empty and is always dancing through the four desktops. QGIS causes no crash neither core dump.
I just can quit QGIS with the help of the left bar on Unity.
This bug is always reproductible.

But this bug does not occur just after installing QGIS with ppa, and starting it for the first time.
Then the second and following starts make this bug to appear.

Very strange bug...

#1 Updated by Damien foggy67 about 5 years ago

I have some fresh news about this bug.
When I delete the 2 configuration directories ~/.config/QGIS and ~/.qgis2, I can start QGIS Desktop again without any trouble and can work with it.
The only strange thing is that QGIS starts in another desktop, than the one I work on.

It looks like that QGIS would save some corrupted informations in these 2 configuration directories, who make QGIS unusable for the next starts.
Hereby I join 2 files.

I hope this may help...

after deleting the configuration files, can you replicate the issue?

#3 Updated by Damien foggy67 about 5 years ago

Yes I can replicate the same issue, if I resize the main window on my screen.
As long as I don't resize it, I can fully work with QGIS.

There seems to be an interference between the window resizing of QGIS and the desktop managment of Unity (compiz) in Ubuntu

Hi

I join the .xsession-errors file, that shows a repetitive message when the empty frame of the QGIS window trembles.
I hope that this will help.
