The compizconfig setting manager doesn't work on my
11.10 installation of Ubuntu. I've tried setting the launcher panel visibility to "never" and changing the number of workspaces in the virtual box, but it doesn't affect the actual system, not even after rebooting.
I have the same setup on a desktop PC and there everything is just working - this problem only appears on the laptop.
unity --reset and
compiz --replace to no avail. I would be very thankful for any suggestions on how to get it working
Ok, so I've dug a bit more and it seems that I'm running Unity 2D. It stays that way regardless of what I select at the login screen
