At least, not at the moment. compiz is a window manager. ls -l /etc/alternatives/x-window-manager on Debian, maybe other distros, to find out which one you're using. (Yes, there's some dedicated script to manage alternatives. You end up have to learn more that's far less useful than "ls -l" and "ln -s", though.) If that works, after killing it, just "x-window-manager" at the command prompt should restart it. If that doesn't work, maybe somebody else can help you find out what you're using and how to restart it. Some window managers support restarting themselves from a menu. Check in yours. The theory is that an X window manager is just a client that intercepts window geometry requests. If the window manager stops running, the screen configuration basically gets frozen (this isn't quite true but it's *very* inconvenient -- think "frozen" and all your surprises will be pleasant). Restart the window manager, it will slurp up all the windows, redecorate them, and everything is cool again. Try *that*, Windows luvvers! :-)
