[Bug 446440] [NEW] black screen after enabling extra visual effects


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

I have made a fresh install from the <ubuntustudio-9.10-beta-alternate-amd64.iso>.
At first everything worked OK (screenwise, I've had some trouble with grub and pulseaudio).
I then installed the restricted nvidia drivers and rebooted, still everything worked.
Enabled the "Extra" visual effects and those worked too but after the next reboot the screen was all black when changed to graphics mode. Tried rebooting several times with the same result.
Searched the web using another computer and got the tips to uninstall compiz and compiz-core using recovery mode terminal, after this the display started to work again. (all windows were initially stuck in upper-left corner but after changing the visual effects back and forth they started to behave also)

Please tell me if I could provide any additional info
