I setup the compizconfig, but I find I don't like it.

and my terminal cant use Ctrl + Shift + c or Ctrl + Shift + v since I setup the compizconfig?

So how to uninstall it?

Can't you just do -

sudo apt-get remove compizconfig-settings-manager

This command should indeed get rid of it, assuming compizconfig is the package name. – Thomas Ward Mar 31 '11 at 13:37

This is what i used when i had a problem with it.

Or you could use:

sudo apt-get remove compiz-fusion-plugins-extra
sudo apt-get remove compiz-plugins-extra
sudo apt-get purge compiz*

Then to Re-install use:

sudo apt-get install unity-2d
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop-2d
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
sudo apt-get install xserver-xgl
sudo apt-get install emerald
sudo apt-get install compiz-fusion-plugins-extra
sudo apt-get install git compiz-plugins-extra
sudo apt-get install compiz-plugins-extra
sudo apt-get install unity
