Compositor uses high CPU to drag windows when mpv or a game is open

Thu Nov 23, 2017 7:43 am

Hello,

I'm using Solus 3 on a decent computer;
7.7 GiB RAM
Intel® Core™ i5-7400 CPU @ 3.00GHz × 4
GeForce GTX 1060 3GB

Using the nvidia proprietary driver which I installed using the "Hardware Drivers" tool in Solus.

Dragging windows is very smooth and uses low CPU, unless the video player mpv is open (just open, not even playing a video) or a game is running, in which case dragging windows becomes choppy and uses high CPU.

Is there way to prevent this from happening?

In case anyone is having the same problem - a solution is to replace Solus 3 with Ubuntu 16.04.3
