Specs:

Ubuntu 12.04 - 64 bit intel 4000 HD 8GB RAM

I've installed the latest intel drivers from ppa packages: ubuntu-x-swat The problem is that when I play a game in full screen mode, the screen flickers (the flickering isn't with a white and black background, but rather a previous image). Also when I press ALT, it still opens dash. Even worse, when I close the game, my entire GUI is ruined. It overlaps the old images from the image with the current GUI and it flickers between these two and I have to reboot.

I've scanned many pages on this site as well as others but I can't find any solution :/

my xorg.conf.d has no errors in the log. I think the problem has something to do with the intel opengl support or the compiz that is installed with ubuntu.
