Resetting Compiz to Remove "no taskbar problem" in Ubuntu 11.04 Unity

1. If you don't have compiz configuration manager, then you can install it by going to the terminal  and typing -
   $ sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
If you have problem opening the terminal, press Ctrl+Alt+F2 or you can directly run commands in terminal by pressing Alt+F2.

2. Now if you want to change some specific settings in compiz, you can start gconf editor by -
  $ gconf-editor
  This should bring you the Gnome Configuration editor as shown below. From the left side choose:"apps" -> "compiz-1". Now under "compiz-1", go to "plugins". You'll see a lot of setting there which can be changed as required.
After making the changes, reset the unity using the terminal -
   $ unity --reset

3. So, if you successfully messed up Compiz then you can actually reset all those value to the default ones by issuing the below commands in your Terminal.
   $ gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz-1
   $ unity --reset
