I have been playing around with compiz settings, and I apparently did something that is making compiz (and therefore unity) not start when I log in. Is there a compiz settings directory somewhere I can delete to restore default settings and get unity back?
This is not definitive, but I have had luck doing the following:
- Log into Ubuntu 2D.
~/.compiz-1folder (~ being your /home/userid directory. In Nautilus, show hidden folders that start with a "." by hitting "ctrl + h")
- in a terminal (or probably with "alt + F2"), type
unity --resetnever seems to fully complete at least for me, so I force close the terminal.
Now free to log into Ubuntu (default 3D). Everything seems back to normal in compiz and with Unity.
u can login through unity 2d . after that go to ccsm and click on the unity plugin checkbox it will tell u about conflicts, approve it and click on the middle option in all the conflict resolution dialogs, after that restart and login to unity(3d).
it may help.
