What should I do to Downgrade to COMPIZ 0.8.6 in Linux Mint 11?
  

You've perhaps observed that not all Compiz plugins work as they utilized to in Linuxmint 10 and modifying some of the default Compiz settings outcomes in a considerable few bugs. This might be explained by minimizing Compiz to form 0.8.6. But the setback is that how can I downgrade it to COMPIZ 0.8.6? Please help!

Below are for the classic Ubuntu desktop but it finishes have an association with linuxmint. Moreover, this is exploratory (returning the changes is a bit confounded and would not be able to work precisely as portrayed in this post) so utilize it at your particular risk!
-In the terminal run the following commands to purge Compiz:
Code:
sudo apt-get purge compiz compiz-plugins-extra compiz-plugins-main
-Purge the CompizConfig Settings Manager too:
Code:
sudo apt-get purge compizconfig-settings-manager
- Add Giodic's PPA and install Compiz
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:guido-iodice/compiz-0.8.6-natty
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install compiz compiz-core compiz-fusion-plugins-main compiz-f

In the event that you need to return the changes and utilize Compiz 0.9.4 again, run the charges below in a terminal:
Code:
sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
sudo ppa-purge ppa:guido-iodice/compiz-0.8.6-natty
sudo apt-get install -f
sudo apt-get purge compiz-plugins-extra compiz-plugins-main compiz-fusion-
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

Attempted this Fresh institute upgraded. Downsized fine, but still no fortunes with a block (appeared somehow simpler in Ubuntu circa 10.04). I tried attempted the restoring guidelines to get once more down to stock but didn't work for me either. Yet synaptic would be unable to get the stock compiz back. Fortunately I had a DVD with the Mint 11 iso to fathom that for me.

You in all probably would like to add all or most of these. So replace first reply step #3 with this:
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:guido-iodice/compiz-0.8.6-natty
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install compiz compiz-core compiz-fusion-plugins-main compiz-fusion-plugins-extra compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported compiz-gnome compiz-plugins compizconfig-backend-gconf compizconfig-settings-manager libdecoration0 python-compizconfig simple-ccsm

I did every last trace of the Steps and it appeared to work fine. However when I run over to open compiz, the first time I did it the symbol wouldn?t head over down to the board so I right clicked it in the menu and there wasn?t the alternative to run the settings so I uninstalled and began over and did every last trace of the Steps a second time, now when I head off to the menu and attempt to identify it isn?t even in the systems record and when I run over to the bundle manager and attempt to reinstall it, it says it installed at present.
