Issue: compiz impact on Steam (closed)
I use LinuxMint 14, with the Cinnamon desktop.

In Steam I only got a very minimal window when opening game properties, and only after a blink of a white rectangle top left of my screen. I traced it back to the "smart" setting of Placement mode in Enable Window Placement.

Setting it to "centered" in Compiz Config Settings Manager solved it.

Since when Cinnamon is using Compiz? Oo
Cinnamon is Gnome Shell fork which is using muffin, mutter fork. So if you installed Compiz on top of Cinnamon, well... that's why you got problems :)
Remove Compiz, problem fixed.

Well, I didn't exactly install Compiz, some of it's parts got installed, automatically.

Oh, why on earth Cinammon would use Compiz? Oo Mint is odd.

Well, I did an uninstall, lost Ubuntu-Tweak, but hey. After reboot it does want to install compiz-core, 2 more. Why? Dunno, different forum. Gonna check my other system too, if the error is still there without compiz-stuff.

oh... Ubuntu Tweak has Unity and Compiz as dependency... thats why you had it I guess.

Pretty stupid dependency if you ask me. Nevermind, mark this as closed.
