    I suppose that you made some changes in Compizconfig setting manager so that you lost control over unity.
    I suggest that you remove compizconfig setting manager and re-install unity and desktop to make sure everything went back the way it should.
    to remove compizconfig setting manager use the following commands:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove compizconfig-settings-manager 
    sudo apt-get remove compiz-plugins-extra 
    sudo apt-get purge compiz*
    to re-install unity and desktop and compizconfig again:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    sudo apt-get install unity-2d
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop-2d
    sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
    sudo apt-get install compiz-plugins-extra
    sudo apt-get install unity
    Reboot and I hope it works
    Report here any messages you get during the operation.

    Re: I dont have plugin unity in compizconfig setting manager

    And which version are you guys talking about? I'm in the process of using these instructions after having messed something up with compiz in 12.04, and I'm told that apt-get is "unable to locate package ubuntu-desktop-2d"...(?) Thanks.

    I've never seen that package exist, for any version.

    If your missing the unity plugin, then simply reinstall unity(the package).

    In your case you may only need to reset unity and compiz.

    Unity 2D was a fallback mode in the original release of 12.04 for use on machines that did not have 3D acceleration. Unity 2D was left out of later versions of Ubuntu and it seems that it is not available in the latest images of 12.04, which is at version 12.04.3. The fallback mode is now a subset of the Nouveau video driver called llvmpipe. This is why the Unity 2D packages are not in the repositories.

    By the way, to restore Unity we do not actually need to remove Compiz Configuration Settings Manager (CCSM). Early versions of CCSM allowed us to disable the Unity plugin but doing that broke the desktop. so, the latest version of CCSM do not allow us to disble the Unity plugin.

    We can get in a similar mess if we remove ubuntu-desktop without installing a replacement desktop before hand.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Re: I dont have plugin unity in compizconfig setting manager

    Hi guys, thanks for the prompt responses. My problem has actually turned out to be minor: I must have magically reset the desktop properties and disabled moving and resizing windows, and managed to remove their frames, too. But, by a combination of asus-user's hints and clicking around inside compiz (disabling plugin ordering and checks also helped), I got it all running smoothly with nvidia drivers from 304 thru 319 to 331 now, which is such a relief after 3 nights lost on meddling with Saucy's setup (and giving up in despair).
