I installed Ubuntu Natty (11.04) a while ago and also CompizConfig Settings Manager (ccsm) for better display effects.
This was working fine till now but since a few days ago due to some unknown reason
1) The minimize,maximize,close buttons get disappeared at start-up. 2) even the show desktop button when clicked shows "your window manager does not support the show desktop button, or you are not running a window manager" and the window switcher also doesnt work.
They were only restored when I ran the command "compiz --replace" or "metacity --replace" in the terminal everytime after the system booted up which not only restored all my windows back to normal as they were after I had installed Natty but also led to the terminal hanging up as if it was closed then it called for a reboot as I virtually couldnt access anything simultaneously.
Now I uninstalled CompizConfig Settings Manager (ccsm) as well as Unity and kept only the Metacity but I still face the problem which gets resolved only after I run "screen metacity --replace" on every reboot
Please help me with a solution that will restore my windows back to normal permanently and which doesnt involve typing or running anything everytime in the terminal after boot.
Thanks a million
