    How do I restart compiz from command?

    Hello.
    A steam bug makes the mouse really small if you have compiz enabled.
    So how do you restart compiz in one command?
    I want to have this as a shortcut, so it can't be two commands such as killall compiz followed by compiz.

    I don't understand you very well.
    Anyway, try

    Code:
    compiz --replace

    you can separate commands with semicolon like:
    Code:
    echo hello; echo world
    but
    Code:
    compiz --replace
    should work fine.

    Thanks. But what do you mean you don't understand me?
    I'm running xubuntu, and yesterday I installed Steam (new linux version).
    It has an annoying bug.
    When I close steam, the mouse becomes microscopic.
    This does not happen if I start steam without having compiz enabled.
    Or more specifically, it happens when you zoom. The mouse is normal when the zoom is on 0 or off.

    But your command solved it. Thanks.
