I fixed tearing for my tv and something went wrong.

Im using multiple screens. I turned of opengl and composite in compiz config. Now all my windows do not work, i can se programs in the bottom navbar but just firefox is displayed.

I cant see terminals and "CompizConfig settings" etc..

I tried to fix the problem by resetting compiz(i think its what this does):

gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz

It did not have any effect. What am i doing wrong here? can i somehow reinstall/reset this?
