Just installed ubuntu for 1st time (12.10) - all went well, but after reboot and log in, notification that compiz has crashed. after sending crash report as requested, all that's left is red colored background - no top of screen options - and mouse cursor.
this happens every time i reboot the dell dimension 2350.
i'm looking forward to actually learning and using ubuntu... but right now it's a "no go". any help would be appreciated. (i'm good at following instructions, but they need to be detailed as i have yet to actually use the operating system.)
