Re: Compiz Settings wont save.
I came across this thread because I'm seeking a soln to this same problem. Although unity plugin is enabled, ccsm preferences do specify gconf backend and the box for desktop integration is ticked - I still experience the problem ( there has been no change ). When I make changes to settings in ccsm, in a number of places it will happen, they are not saved if I ( 1 ) hit the back button, or ( 2 ) close ccsm, or ( 3 ) restart the system. I have also tried using dconf to change some compiz settings that were problematic and they not only did not hold, but the available rows/setting that can be changed with dconf are dependent on settings specified in ccsm. For instance...
In dconf, I navigated to org > compiz > profiles > unity > plugins > core...
And the only options available to change for desktops were the ones that have something in the field at ccsm > general options > desktop size
Now, two of those fields in ccsm are empty by default; and, with ccsm not saving changes, are what is reverted to when any of ( 1 ), ( 2 ), or ( 3 ) above are carried out.
Please, does anyone have a soln? I'm finding this very frustrating at this point.
