Compiz-fusion problems with 7.10 “Gutsy Gibbon” related to update from 7.04

Okay, I’m still not sure, I did not found in the Web many pages refering to this problem, but it seems there is a problem with Compiz…

The problem applies to Ubuntu 7.10 “Gutsy Gibbon” if you have upgraded from 7.04 “Feisty Fawn” with Compiz-Fusion already installed using the wizard procedure, this issue can lead to:

Compiz NOT WORKING

The Compiz Configuration Settings Manager (ccsm) can stop working: can’t start.

HOW TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM:

The solution is very easy, just download and run this .deb package from Gutsy Official Repository to update (or re-install)

Gutsy Official Repository Link

Then, reboot.

Now use Compiz as usual, should be working now…

If something goes wrong, just REMOVE Compiz (sudo apt-get remove compiz*) the INSTALL it again using this simple guide.

Please, take care of this link too:

There is is a guide to update your system from Feisty to Gutsy with Compiz already installed.

As usual hope it is useful to somebody…
