I installed CCSM a little while back. Then I enabled "blur windows" and the desktop got all messed up, Unity 2D still works fine.

I have tried every fix I've found here on Askubuntu but still can't get Unity 3D to work normally. Is there something I'm missing?

I activated "blur windows", by now I already uninstalled it, wiped all config files to it I was able to find and tried unity --reset , unity --replace and gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/compiz-1 no success.

  • I forgot to mention I did that as well. hmmm... :( May 24, 2012 at 3:46
  • It seems like disabling that plugin by unchecking the "enable" checkbox should undo anything it would be doing. Perhaps it's something else that got changed? May 24, 2012 at 4:25
  • @MartyFried When I enabled it, the desktop immediately got messed up, and upon disabling it all windows became unclickable for a little while, after that no window borders or title bars appeared and it remains like that. also CTRL-ALT-T for calling the terminal stopped working as well. the 2D option really saved me.

  • Remove .compiz and .gconf/apps/compiz folder from your home directory. Press CTRL+H to see hidden files. logout and login again.
    or
  • If you have CCSM, go to the preference window by clicking the button in the left-bottom. In the profile page, Click on the Reset to defaults. Logout and Login again.

  • I'm sorry but none of these solutions ever worked, I'm right now commenting from a clean Ubuntu install. In any case, thanks a LOT for the comments and answers :) Jun 8, 2012 at 23:13
