Bug Description

I have two monitors: 1920*1080+1280*1024

I have upgraded from 20.04, using Compiz as default compositor.

When selecting any configuration involving Marco/picom in Tweak, after reboot the wallpaper on the secondary display is misaligned and there are some weird window outlines present. Can't adjust display position in Displays - displays are not draggable.

Only switching back to Compiz fixes the issue.
