I'm doing something with Ogre3D, but as i see when i run it in Window mode it's choppy, but with high fps( cca 150 ). When i run it in fullscreen mode everything works fine. I saw this behaviour only in Ubuntu. I've moved back to Ubuntu few days ago.

How can be this fixed?

Have you tried disabling Compiz? (is that the right spelling? haven't used ubuntu for a long time)

Here is how you do it.

  1. Press ALT + F2
  2. Type this command: gconftool-2 --type=string --set \ /desktop/gnome/applications/window_manager/current /usr/bin/metacity
  3. When you are done, type this command: compiz --replace

Yes, it's because of compiz. But lines above won't work. – kravemir Aug 12 '11 at 16:28
my information is probably out-of-date. – Joe the Person Aug 16 '11 at 3:08
