    Compiz Fusion killed my Ubuntu box

    While playing around with CompizConfig Settings Manager and its effects options I managed to set up a set of effects that meant all of drop down menus where blacked out, shortly followed by the whole screen.
    I managed to recover by following the advice at HowTo : Completely Remove Compiz Fusion Including config files for a clean re-install - Ubuntu Forums (essentially uninstall compiz fusion) but this is a rather long winded way of fixing the problem. Is there not an easy way to revert to my previous settings that worked.

    I was going to suggest replacing your xorg.conf with a default one, but Ive got a feeling I read somewhere the xorg.conf has been depreciated in the latest versions.. Im not sure off hand, but I will have a look around today for you if no-one else has managed to sort it for you.

    dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
    dpkg-reconfigure compiz

    etc etc. Reconfigure packages to an original state. May have to thrown in a dpkg-reconfigure --force xserver-xorg etc.
