Which version of Ubuntu are you using? Are you using XFCE? Then at a terminal, do:

the easiest way to get back to a working desktop if compiz is messing it up is just to login with safe-mode

there is a menu on the bottom left of the login screen, just choose safe mode

after logging in you can undo whatever you did to mess things up and restart in normal mode again
