What compositor is everyone using? (I'm trying xcompmgr)

@HexDSL
Mutter! I'm on GNOME Shell most of the time for now.

@rghvdberg @HexDSL compton is decent, though I notice a considerable amount of output latency when using it

@boilingsteam @HexDSL That's the badger. I wonder if anyone has done any direct comparisons of FPS between various compositors, recently?

@popey
yes Phoronix did at least in terms of performance impact in games but there is about none. as for other features I dont know.

@HexDSL

@hund @HexDSL it's not just for bling. It's for vsync. To me, that's what really matters, and the only reason I use one (Compton).

@dnkl @HexDSL Right. I always forget that.

What's the issue(s)? Screen tearing? If so, is it all the time or just in videos and games? Or what?

@hund @HexDSL yes, screen tearing. For me it's all the time, but in particular when scrolling (in text editors, browsers etc), or when switching workspace in i3.

@hund @dnkl I have no 'issues' mostly i like the transparency in my screen shot tool. ive been on Compton for ages, trying xcompmgr now... wondered what everyone else was using was all :)

@HexDSL @dnkl Oh, the transparency is cool. :D I used to have transparent terminals before my desktop turned into what it is today. :)

@HexDSL I tried Compton on Lubuntu yesterday. Sadly, I think it crashed the computer.

@HexDSL sway uses its own very nice compositor :D

@HexDSL Compton I use for transparrency, though I'd be up for seeing others if there's something more light-weight.

@HexDSL xcompmgr, (or Compton)
They are basically the name thing, but Compton has a edge color glitch on Nvidia cards for me.
