Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

Logging into a gnome session and running ubuntu-bug compiz I was told that "you seem to have unity running" although I don't. Looking at the package hook for compiz it seems to just check the my gconf settings to see if I have unity running rather than seeing if there is a unity process.

From /usr/share/apport/package-hooks/

    # ok, add maximum interesting info without too much spam
    report['CompizPlugins'] = command_output(['gconftool-2',
        '--get', '/apps/compiz-1/general/screen0/options/active_plugins'])
    # User configuration
    report['GconfCompiz'] = command_output(['gconftool-2', '-R', '/apps/compiz-1'])

    unity_bug = False
    if ui and "unity" in report['CompizPlugins'] and report['SourcePackage'] != "unity":
        if ui.yesno("Thanks for reporting this bug. It seems you have unity running. Is the issue you are reporting is related to unity itself rather than compiz?"):
            unity_bug = True
