X-plane slow down to 1FPS


Description elpresidento 2010-07-12 16:02:17 CEST
Sorry I dont know what category is it. Please move this to right category.

Some seconds after I'm running (after sim is loaded) X-Plane (http://www.x-plane.com/index_desktop.html) is slows down from normal to about 1 FPS. It slows down all PC (mouse, other running application...). It is sudden jump from normal to very slow.
I have played X-Plane long time in KDE without any problem. but I would like to use XFCE. Experimentally I try to install GNOME and I tested it and this one is OK as well.

Do you have compositor enabled?
Comment 3 elpresidento 2010-07-22 19:25:01 CEST
Yes I do. I have tested game without compositor now and it is OK. I have made quick test. I have started compositor with state on after slowing game I switch off compositor (game speed up) and I immediately switch on compositor and game didnt slow down.
