I know this question has been answered many times. But nothing works for me!!! I created a new user "moe" and low and behold everything is working in moe's window, but not in my original window. Since things are working properly in moe's window how do I transfer the functionality to the original window. Hopefully this will click with someone and a working answer will appear in my e-mail, keeping fingers crossed! VERY Frustrated user!!!!


I've found an answer:

cd .cache
mv compizconfig-1 compizconfig-1_renamed

and reboot. You lose your Desktop settings, but you get back your Desktop.

  • Had the same problem today after running an upgrade. Many thanks, that was the only solution to my issue after trying many other fixes ! Should be accepted as answer – simo Sep 17 '16 at 18:54
