and you did what that caused this to happen?

which video card?

does eselect opengl list show your video card active?

do you video card drivers match your kernel?

please see this thread to understand what I am talking about

I have not had this problem in a long while but, when it used to happen I found that right-clicking on the Compiz-Fusion icon and either:
a) selecting Reload Window Manager
or
b) selecting Emerald Theme Manager and re-selecting the desired Emerald theme
brought the missing buttons back.
