    I though I'd post this here as well as the sticky for discussion.

    I have been using Unity 6.8, but have proposed updates enabled and don't know if all 12.10 users have it yet. The feature allowing or blocking internet content in privacy is nice. The Amazon and Ubuntu store search seem to work fine.
    Infinite diversity in infinite combination.

    I have yet to see this System Settings-->Privacy option show up.

    Aha! Figured it out...

    Had to install "activity-log-manager-control" to get the "Privacy" option.

    I can't use "metacity --replace" script anymore with this Unity version. What is changed that prevents this?

    It is a .desktop file with this content:

    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/env xdg-open
    
    [Desktop Entry]
    Version=1.0
    Type=Application
    Terminal=false
    Icon[en_US]=gnome-panel-launcher
    Name[en_US]=metacity
    Exec=metacity --replace
    Name=metacity
    Icon=gnome-panel-launcher
    I realy need this, becouse I can't play games with Compiz enabled.

    You'd probably be better off to just log into a Classic (no effects) session to play games or whatever.

    If you want metacity --replace to give you control of your windows (wm) from an ubuntu session then you'll need to enable compositing for metacity - in dconf
    org.gnome.metacity compositing-manager true

    Edit: - just to note - it may not just good enough to run metacity --replace (kill compiz), after that if need be then start metacity (/usr/share/applications/metacity or like in screen
