I've made some changes to my compiz with
compizConfig settings manager, like enable the cubic desktop and changing the unity icons size.
Today when I started my laptop, they all where gone back to default and I can't even change it back. I mean when I change them in compizConfig, they are not changed in reality, no effects.
I've restarted once, and no effect. Also updated and upgraded packages.
compiz --replace and
unity --reset didn't work.
And yesterday I installed cheese and gparted. Maybe it was because of that. And this is the first time in my life I'm seeing this.
My question is very similar to this . Had a look at the bugs in compiz launchpad, didn't find anything matching.
Some info about my laptop:
