Complex compiz question
Ok here is the deal. When i first installed ubuntu 8.10, I had issues after i typed in the user name and password. After i typed in the user name and password, all i received was the default ubuntu wallpaper and the mouse cursor.
I did some searching and found a fix for it.
The fix i used were these commands
sudo apt-get remove compiz
sudo apt-get remove compiz-core
So after i used this fix, i was able to boot up into ubuntu. Everything was fine and dandy until i started to play around with it and read forums. Oh yeah, i am a big newbie to linux.
So i tried the compiz command and i got this
