[Bug 1232299] Re: gnome-session-flashback with Compiz launches Unity if you create a user and log in for the first time directly with gnome-flashback
Got it. The bug is in Compiz.
When Compiz starts up it looks for upgrade scripts in
/usr/share/compizconfig/upgrades and runs each of them. For each
(compizconfig/libcompizconfig/src/main.c:4737) sets the Compiz profile
to the one mentioned in the filename ("unity" for all the scripts
shipped in compiz-gnome); I guess that is so that the affected plugins
are made active. But, it doesn't set the profile back afterwards!
So, the workaround for a new user account is:
mkdir -p ~/.config/compiz-1/compizconfig
for file in /usr/share/compizconfig/upgrades/*.upgrade; do basename $f; done > ~/.config/compiz-1/compizconfig/done_upgrades
Then Compiz won't run the upgrade scripts (since we told it they've
already been done), and we avoid setting the profile to unity.
Compiz devs, would you please consider trying to fix this bug? If I have
time I'll try to submit a patch, but it won't be soon...
