Observation: if I hit Alt+F2 and enter
compiz --replace, then the shorcut key Alt+F4 for closing windows stops working. I am using the latest version of gnome-ubuntu (14.04).
Question: Is there a way to restore the hotkey functionality? Or is there another way to restart
compiz without losing the hotkey functionality? Also tell me, if this is a bug, then I'll try to report it! Also sometimes Ctrl+Ctrl/C/V stop working, but it seems to happen for a different reason which I have not found out yet. Therefore it would be nice to know how to restore/relaunch the keyboard functionality in general.
Unfortunately I have to restart
compiz this way sometimes, because occasionally my mouse clicks will stop working (for whatever reason, but this is a different story), and the solution other people with the same problem have found is to restart
