View Full Version : [ubuntu] Compiz has messed up my desktop. (no launcher bar)

Can anyone help? I have natty 11.4 and love it but last night I played with some of the Compiz window settings and its messed things up. Now when I log into that account the icon launcher bar at the side is missing and the resolution seems to be missed up or at least the bookmars/system etc options at top left are missing. So I can't access terminal, systerm options, monitors or my files or web browser.

Is there a way to get into applications without having the side bar or any desktop icons? Also how can I disable/cahnge compiz or recover my desktop so to speak. It all works apart from that, can open anything on my desktop.

Was thinking of making a new account and deleting that one but I haven't backed up my bookmarks or files on that one. Thanks.
