[Bug 430002] [NEW] compiz partially uninstalled in upgrade from 9.04


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

I upgraded to the latest alpha version of 9.10 , the upgrade process
uninstalled several packages including compiz.

I expected compiz to be working after the upgrade, it wasn't.

When the upgrade was completed, I had lost the 3d effects and I didn't
have  a window manager.   My windows had no outer border.

After updating my system by checking for new updates, the problem hadn't
been resolved.

I went into synaptic manager and could see that several compiz
components were installed e.g compiz-core, but compiz itself wasn't

I manually installed compiz , then switched on 3d effects and everything
was back to normal.

I suspect that there is a glitch somewhere in the update process as far
as compiz is concerned.
