Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I installed CCSM a little while back. Then I enabled "blur windows" and the desktop got all messed up, Unity 2D still works fine.

I have tried every fix I've found here on Askubuntu but still can't get Unity 3D to work normally. Is there something I'm missing?

I activated "blur windows", by now I already uninstalled it, wiped all config files to it I was able to find and tried unity --reset , unity --replace and gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/compiz-1 no success.

what you changed in ccsm would be most helpful for anyone having a desire to help you –  hbdgaf May 24 '12 at 3:24

I forgot to mention I did that as well. hmmm... :( –  Jonathan Acosta May 24 '12 at 3:46
    
It seems like disabling that plugin by unchecking the "enable" checkbox should undo anything it would be doing. Perhaps it's something else that got changed? –  Marty Fried May 24 '12 at 4:25
    
@MartyFried When I enabled it, the desktop immediately got messed up, and upon disabling it all windows became unclickable for a little while, after that no window borders or title bars appeared and it remains like that. also CTRL-ALT-T for calling the terminal stopped working as well. the 2D option really saved me. –  Jonathan Acosta May 24 '12 at 4:43

  • Remove .compiz and .gconf/apps/compiz folder from your home directory. Press CTRL+H to see hidden files. logout and login again.
    or
  • If you have CCSM, go to the preference window by clicking the button in the left-bottom. In the profile page, Click on the Reset to defaults. Logout and Login again.

I'm sorry but none of these solutions ever worked, I'm right now commenting from a clean Ubuntu install. In any case, thanks a LOT for the comments and answers :) –  Jonathan Acosta Jun 8 '12 at 23:13
