I have an entry because I have that PPA and askwara does not.

Good catch, oldtechaa. I missed that.

Back to the original problem after that diversion...
Here is something you can try - enable "Copy to texture" in the Compiz Config Settings.

Another possibility is here

Thank you,TxLonghorn!
I did enable Copy to texture, will check after few times boot..
In general, if problems happens after boot I command "compiz" in terminal, then it loads all kind of plugins and things start to work. But, sometimes there is just completely black screen except main panel or cairo dock (witch I like) is not loading. Sometimes terminal is frozen, with no possibility to type at all, so I can only reboot...
The "another possibility" link you posted is not active, could you check and send again?

Hello again,
after few days of use I can say that no, when I enabled "copy to texture" in Compiz settings - the computer boots correctly maybe 80 or 90 % of times. So, there IS a progress but doesn't seem that all is perfectly all right!
Any thoughts about that?
Also, after recent update and upgrade, at the beginning of the session I get a message saying: "VBoxClient: the VirtualBox kernel service is not running. Exiting." I don't know if it something serious to consider....

Many thanks for the tips!
