[Bug 944981] Re: Hot corner in Compiz does not work after reboot in 12.04


Here is a workaround that worked for me:
1. Install gconf-editor (sudo apt-get install gconf-editor)

2. Assuming that you have previously set up the corner action with the Compiz Config Settings Manager, we first find out the correct value string (if you know the config strings by heart, you can skip that):
start the gconf-editor, and navigate to /apps/compiz-1/plugins/expo/screen0/options
find the Key that is named "expo_edge" and write down the value, for example "<BottomRightEdge>". 

3. Navigate now to /apps/compizconfig-1/profiles/Default/plugins/expo
Find again the key with the name "expo_edge", and fill in the previously found string, for example "<BottomRightEdge>" (without " quotes)

4. Be happy on the next reboot because it is working

I assume that the compiz config setting manager writes to the wrong part
of the gconf file (I thought gconf would be obsolete anyway and would be
replaced by dconf). So may be the bug is more related to CCSM instead of
compiz itself. Perhaps this bug is related to Bug #943824
