In 14.04, running nohup compiz --replace & in a terminal solves my problem, but I still have to type it every time after a reboot. I tried manually ordering the plugins as the majority of answers here tell you to do, but it just crashes compiz.

Yes, Compiz Extra are indeed extra plugings. There is a fundamental difference between the 2 sets though: Compiz plugins are the core plugins (these are installed by default and are considered must haves for a well working Compiz) and Compiz Extra hold the fun extra's so these are seen as not necessary but might be useful to a more than average audience. ...

The older way of dragging a window outside the screen was sending it partly to another workspace because the "window snapping" feature was absent (the one that you experienced: "if I drag a window to the side of the workspace, the window is maximized to half of the screen"). Now, it is enabled by default. Do disable it, install Unity Tweaks Tool: Window ...

I know this is an old post, but Gus's answer helped me and I'd like to add to it. This is what I did (on Ubuntu 12.04): Alt+F2 (run application) Scheduled Tasks New recurrent task killall compiz -HUP Every day at 00:00 Now compiz will be restarted automatically every night, without having to know the process id. My problem was that if I left my screen ...
