Can't Disable or Restart Compton

view full story

http://crunchbanglinux.org – I saw the thread "Compton issues", but I think my problem is a one-off issue, so I'd rather not add it to a bug report thread.Anyway, a couple weeks ago, Corenominal posted about the cb-vlc-fix in the #! repos, and I installed it hoping it would solve the problems I was having with VLC and compositing (horrible tearing in HD video). Unfortunately, it didn't, but that's not really the problem. Normally, I would just fallback to disabling Compton before starting a video and enabling it again when I was done. But this time, I didn't have an option to disable or resta (HowTos)
