GNOME, Mutter, Unity -> GNOME, Compiz, Shell



I removed some unity packages after I installed GNOME shell, and I used my Ubuntu 11.10 for a few months.

A few days ago I removed every unity package from Synaptic, installed Compiz, went through update and restarted. Now it gets halted after Ubuntu logo with dots below get passed.

Does anybody know how can I fix it? And of course, get to my main goal, Shell + Compiz, instead of Unity + Mutter?

thanks :-)
