    Angry ubuntu 11.10 froze after 1 hour of installation

    after a fresh install of 11.10 & installing all updates and drivers, i wanted to make some tweaks to unity so i installed compiz , once i opened it the system freezed for 2 seconds then compiz crashed , lost unity and the top panel , i tried to show them using keyboard shortcuts but failed ,reset my pc but after login, same problem exists, tried unity 2d, gnome shell with no use, all of them have no panels and no keyboard shortcuts are working ,the screen makes weird flicks it seems to be a conflict in display drivers [i have frglx installed] , any solutions guys???

    I had this problem too...
    What worked for me - not saying you should do this, but I got things working well this way...

    Ctrl - Alt - T for a terminal

    unity --reset

    reboot computer

    I then opened Software Sources and enabled "Pre-release updates" and "unsupported updates" in the Updates panel. Then ran update manager - new versions of compiz were installed which seem to have solved the problem.
