What is it you're trying to do, are you trying to use Compiz as a standalone wm? How did you install Compiz and did it work before? Just need some details :)

If you're just trying to alter settings then you want the compiz config settings manager. I'm not sure what you're trying to do but I think it's just the wrong package. Looks like compiz is trying to become the wm but I don't think that's what you want.

Here, this sticky does a way better job of explaining it than I possible could: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=809695. I'm fairly sure it isn't installed by default but if it is you'll find it under the system tab on the top menu.
