I enabled Reflections in CCSM on my Laptop and Ubuntu froze. I restarted and could only manage to get into the login page but when I login it freezes. So I booted up recovery mode and got up the root prompt and typed in;

rm -r /home/username/.compiz

To remove compiz settings, obviously replacing username with my username and all I got was "no such file or directory."

Is there another way to remove compiz settings?

Thank you.

i can confirm mine is

/home/scott/.compiz/

Purge Compiz, it will remove the configuration files, then reinstall?


sudo aptitude purge compiz compizconfig-settings-manager

I must be doing something wrong with the above advice, I ran the sudo command, I turned the power off with the power button, I don't know if there is a command to restart in shell, started up Ubuntu, logged in and it froze.

I am a newbie too I don't know if this will help you but you can access shell with networking or just shell, in the repair boot option 2 (I am running 9.10 ubuntu)
