I'm using Gnome.
I've discovered suddenly that I can't resize most windows. I hover over an edge or the lower right corner and the drag bar appears, but I'm not able to engage it. I tried turning off a lot of things I wasn't using in Compiz (which turned on ages ago, so why that would work I can't say) and now I can't even move windows around. The cursor behaves the way I'd expect but clicking and holding doesn't allow any movement.
It is obviously a little exasperating, and I'm wondering how to go about troubleshooting this.
Update: Compiz is definitely the issue. If I do
metacity --replace I get a functional, no frills, X Window Manager. If I try to restore Compiz (
compiz --replace) the problems come right back with it.
