My installed system is Kubuntu 14.04 amd64. Applications used in benchmarks are from Ubuntu repository and phoronix test suite. Exception is cairo-compmgr compiled from source. Source is from https://github.com/gandalfn/Cairo-Co...er/tree/master.
Every benchmark was done after restart. Then I don't logged via lightdm but via ctrl-alt-f1 ctrl-alt-f2 to accordingly root and normal account. Then from root I stopped lightdm service and started X via: "DISPLAY=:0; export DISPLAY=:0; /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc &" and on normal account started window manager example: "DISPLAY=:0 ; export DISPLAY=:0 ; awesome &"
Configuration for Compton in tests: "Openbox with tint2 and compton", "Fluxbox with compton and tint2", "Fvwm2 with compton and tint2" was copy-pasted form duncanlock.net. In test "Openbox with compton" configuration was removed and compton was starded via command: "compton -c --backend glx --vsync opengl-swc --paint-on-overlay --glx-no-stencil --glx-no-rebind-pixmap &".
