compizconfig settings manager stopped working after update

Everything was working well with compiz before, wobbly windows and all that good stuff. I ran apt-get upgrade and installed some new compiz packages, now nothing works!

If I type ccsm in a terminal I get this...

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/ccsm", line 45, in <module>
idle = ccm.IdleSettingsParser(context)
File "usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/ccm/", line 229, in __init__
File "usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/ccm/", line 228, in <lambda>
File "usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/ccm/", line 225, in FilterPlugin
AttributeError: 'compizconfig.Plugin' object has no attribute 'Initialized'

I also cant add more "desktops." I have set it to 4 but only 2 show up.

Ubuntu 7.10

Feisty Kiba in Gutsy is BAD

I encountered this problem when I was running Gutsy Ubuntu 7.10 and I installed kiba-dock using the Feisty debian archives. In /etc/apt/sources.list I had enabled the Feisty archives for kiba-dock:
deb feisty eyecandy
deb-src feisty eyecandy
This borked compiz config pretty hard. I undid the mistake by running apt-get remove on kiba-dock, and apt-get remove on compizconfig-settings-manager:
sudo apt-get remove kiba* compizconfig-settings-manager
Then I commented out the archive lines in the sources list and updated apt-get and reinstalled compizconfig-settings-manager:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
This should clean up the compiz config issue, but you're still left without kiba-dock. :-(

To install kiba-dock cleanly for Gutsy I followed this article:
