    Re: the Compiz crash

    If you restart your computer and log back in, is everything still frozen? Sometimes a restart will get you back into a working system and you can troubleshoot from there.

    Compiz can really mess things up if you don't know what you're doing so I suggest you read a manual

    And that's why you have 8440 beans.

    You might be the right person to ask this question, but do you know a fix for that annoying screen flicker in compiz when you rotate the cube?

    That's an old bug. Don't think you will see a fix for that.
