I have a Toshiba Satellite A100 (part No PSAAKC-VA104) with onboard ATI RADEON® XPRESS 200M Graphics card which currently dual boots Vista and PCLOS2009.
Under PCLOS Compiz works fine and I can display and rotate the desktop cube with no problems. However, under Mint 8 (and previously Mint 7) although Compiz effects are activated (wobbly windows etc) the Cube functionality is severely flawed.
Pressing "<CTRL><ALT>Mouse Drag" simply highlights an area of the desktop, the cube does not rotate. Pressing "<CTRL><ALT>Down Arrow" displays the cube faces in filmstrip mode - but pressing <LEFT> or <RIGHT> Arrow has no effect.
It works fine on a Lenovo T40 and as I said Compiz under PCLOS works fine on the Tosh. Does anyone have any idea what the issue might be. I'd love to install Mint and is is SO easy and intuative to use - but not if it means losing the cool Compiz desktop
I've tried searching various combinations of Toshiba and Compis but no one seems to have reported anything like this issue anywhere
