This happened after I reinstalled the fglrx graphic drivers. Is this a problem with Unity or Compiz?

Try to run unity --replace & in your terminal, and see if anything happens. (AND - did you mess around with the CCSM ? ) – denNorske Nov 30 '12 at 19:22

It's a problem with Unity.

There's a bug tracker going on here

I got back by right clicking the desktop -> change wallpaper then clicking "All Settings" in the top left, then "Software sources" bottom center, Additional drivers, the far right tab, then reset it to the default open source drivers.
