When you log back in as that user you should be back to a regular gnome setup. Then you can rename 1 dir back at a time until you're hosed again then you know what directory houses the compiz settings. I've done this before and tanked it just like you. I just dont remember which dir houses the preferences.
Well, I tried renaming the 4 directories you listed above, but they had
no effect. However, I went on a hunt for anything that mentioned
"compiz" and it looks like I found it. In / home / <username> /
.config / compiz , I used your method of renaming the 2 files
(compiz-manager and enable-compiz) and 1 directory (compizconfig) to
effectively disable those settings, and boom -- I'm good to go again.
Thanks for the ideas & suggestions.
