From one day to another (probably after an automatic update), when I log in to my profile, I do not see window decoration or the start menu. If I use another user, everything works fine. I had this problem before, so I know it is unity and compiz related. Back then, I solved it by moving away the compizconfig directory, but this does not do the trick this time, although it seems to be a profile-related issue.

The error message reads:

Sorry, Ubuntu 16.04 has experienced an internal error.

If you notice further problems, try restarting the computer.

ExecutablePath /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/unity/compiz-config-profile-setter

Package unity 7.4.5+16.04.20190312-0ubuntu1

ProblemType: Crash

Title: compiz-config-profile-setter crashed with SIGSEGV in cssObjectGetInterface_()


ApportVersion: 2.20.1-ubuntu2.21

CompizPlugins: No value set for '/apps/compiz-1/general/screen0/options/active_plugins'


This error message appears only sometimes, the launchpad is never around though.

How do I fix my broken profile with minimal effort?
