After installing compiz-config on Ubuntu 12.04, my whole desktop settings got disturbed. No window control buttons(min, max & close) and no window wobbling as earlier. So i executed the command unity-reset. Now there is no panel and no launcher either. I have tried to change settings in ccsm, but nothing works. please suggest.

    How did you reset unity? – Mitch Aug 20 '12 at 17:23

Don't play with ccsm. Its very advanced tool.

Execute following,

gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz-1 this will reset compiz.

Reset unity unity --reset

Now reboot.

If things stays same, open ccsm make sure you have checked Unity plugin in ccsm.

ccsm unity
