Issue 375037: Chrome failing to repaint correctly when used with non-compositing window managers under Ubuntu 14.04

Reported by, May 20 2014 Project Member

Issue description

Several Googlers have reported that since upgrading to Goobuntu 14.04, if they use Chrome with a non-compositing window manager (e.g., XMonad, Awesome) that Chrome won't always repaint properly when switching between windows.  (See b/12995284.)

Current workaround is to run a standalone compositing manager like xcompmgr.

Suspicions are this is related to the new Aura UI stuff, but no concrete evidence for that currently.

That bug report mentions chrome 33? Is it still relevant? 33 was certainly not Aura.

I know I was able to reproduce the bug just last week when I installed Goobuntu 14.04, using the stock version of Chrome that was installed.  (I.e., the google-chrome-stable package, which I believe was 35 at the time.)

But yeah, the fact that people were seeing similar effects before 35 seems to make Aura a less likely suspect.

This has now also been reported as

The problem pre-dates Aura, and affects any non-compositing window environment.
