It sounds to me like you are having issues with CCSM itself and not Compiz. In that case, it would be preferable to instead file a bug report describing the crashes you are getting so developers can work on a fix. Thanks! – Christopher Kyle Horton Jun 4 '12 at 21:59

Don't play with ccsm in unity

Yeah, ccsm is still not stable in Unity. If it wrecked your desktop try Ctrl+Alt+T to launch the terminal and type unity --reset.

If that doesn't work try Alt+Ctrl+F1 to enter console mode. Enter your username and password, and type

unity --reset

Consider removing ccsm if you want a stable desktop.

Get into a terminal and run:

unity --reset

Of course IZX assume that when we accessing to menu, we don't have a shortcut to the terminal window. – Octávio Filipe Gonçalves Jun 4 '12 at 10:47
Tried that and it still keeps happening – Mick Jun 4 '12 at 10:59
@Subv3rsion: your comment makes no sense, but I rolled back the edit since you seem to have taken offense. – izx Jun 4 '12 at 11:25
