See similar stuff.

Try disabling and then reenabling desktop-effects. That 'fixed it' for
me (at least, up to the current state of 'working').


[The desktop-effects prefs app doesn't change the label of the button
to 'disable', but it seems to do that.]

Unfortunately this didn't help. I still lose window management and can't switch between apps, can't switch focus nor workspaces. When I "Enable Desktop Effects", is there a log somewhere that might explain why it's failing ?

When I try it I do end up with the "desktop-effects" process but no compiz processes, anything I should be checking for there?
