Solution to Unity Desktop Fullscreen Graphical Glitch

You may find that your out of the box installation of Unity Desktop has the following glitch:

  1. Connect a second screen
  2. Fullscreen a window on one of those screens
  3. Do something on the other screen e.g. focusing or maximising a window
The exact actions that cause an issue aren't very consistent.


  1. Install CompizConfig
  2. Utility → Workarounds
  3. Set "Force full screen redraws (buffer swap) on repaint" to true.
