This is an effort to try and provide assistance.

For example You decide to jazz up your peppermint installation with say a 3D dock such as Avant, Cairo or Docky.

You may encounter issues with your video / graphic card - drivers / setup.

This will put you in a situation whereas your screen and general response including video and audio might start getting jerky and playing up.

Get some tools and suss out your Windows Manager

Compiz should be ok with your system,
correctly configured with compositing enabled and initiated is probably the best 3d manager (openGL).

So, How did I get rid of that lag?

Synaptic Manager
> search > compiz
install:
compiz
all relative data
Fusion Icon

then:
synaptic > search > xcompmgr
install xcompmgr

after the download and installation of required software.
(using synaptic or software manager)
Full set:
> compiz
> xcompmgr
> ccsm (compiz cofiguration settings manager)
> Fusion Icon
> compiz-plugins
> compiz-plugins-extra
> compiz-plugins-main
> relative dependancies and additions.

reboot.

Then using `Fusion Icon'

Choose compiz as `windows manager'

This on my system has `got rid of the lags'

I now have listed in `Fusion Icon'
- MetaCity
- Dropbox
- Compiz

You can choose which manager and determine that only one manager is running.

note: these are not terminal commands, they are procedures.

You may need to initiate windows compositing after your system has loaded.
choosing compiz as windows manager by running `Fusion Icon' will iniate compiz compositing.
(or `reload window manager')
executing xcompmgr in a terminal will initiate compositing in other modes.

Put `fusion icon' in your startup programs.

this is afterwards.
No lags or response-loss.
