[Bug 2043805] [NEW] Missing dependency for package compiz-core: libcompizconfig0


Public bug reported:

If one installs only packages `compiz-core` and `compiz-plugins` then
executing `compiz --replace` will result in following error:

compiz (core) - Info: Loading plugin: core
compiz (core) - Info: Starting plugin: core
compiz (core) - Info: Loading plugin: ccp
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to load plugin: ccp

and you end up without a working window manager.

This seems to be caused by missing dependency for package
`libcompizconfig0`. It seems that the `compiz-core` package cannot work
correctly without also installing `compiz-gnome` (which takes package
`compiz` as dependency which then depends on package

It also seems that gtk-window-decorator distributed with Ubuntu 22.04
LTS is very crash-happy with my GPU (Nvidia GTX 1060) but that might be
caused by proprietary Nvidia drivers so that should be considered out of
scope for this bug report. I got compiz to run correctly with Emerald
decorations instead after installing `compiz-gnome` package manually.
