Hello Fedora users,

I'm a newbie to Fedora (coming from Ubuntu) and I decided I would try to custimize Fedora to my liking (which proved to be overwhelming). I installed Compiz-fusion and enabled "wobbly windows", which forced me to disable "snapping windows". After doing that, I rebooted to enable the effects and it starts up to a command line.

I pressed CTRL+ALT+F2, logged in and ran "rm -rf .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd .metacity" which I was told would reset my gnome shell, which it didn't. I know Compiz Fusion caused this crash, how can I revert back or at least get my GUI back.

(Fedora 15 i786 PAE)

Thanks.

I am new to Red Hat/Fedora and the yum installer and it's options. But when you reboot the machine and you get the login prompt, log in then su to root and uninstall compiz.

This is only a guess but once you su to root the command to uninstall compiz would be.

yum remove compiz

Once you remove compiz reboot by issuing the command:

reboot
