the problem with compiz is that you always had a segfault ready to pop in (or known as SSEGV_FAULT)and I see no changes when you switch from compiz to metacity just be careful not to break anything when you do the switch.

Adding shortcut keybindings from the command line in 12.04 To prevent the accepted answer to become too extensive, posting a separate solution for 12.04. Until (and including) 12.04, custom keybindings are not stored in the dconf database, but in ~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/keybindings (in an xml file, in subfolders like custom0 etc).

I've you've come here (like me) for the title alone (Ctrl+Alt+Arrow key doesn't switch workspaces) then additionally to other answers here, try increasing the SIZE of your desktop: Compiz > General settings > "Desktop size" tab > if it's 1x1, increase it Credit to Uchiha Madara's comment in another question.

I used the Fading Windows section in Compwiz to adjust the fading speed. The options there are similar to gconf-editor which was suggested by @nicolas. However, for some reason, gconf-editor adjustment doesn't work for me.

still wonder what exactly the name of that openGL plugin is... while one can revert to the default settings (which should commonly work): gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz compiz --replace

Adding shortcut keybindings in two steps from the command line (14.04+) Adding custom shortcuts from the command line can be done, but is a bit complicated; it needs to be done in a few steps per keybinding. On the other hand, it is pretty straightforward and can very well be scripted if you somehow want to do it from the command line (that was the ...
