go into your current home directory and do this.

$ find  .  -type f   2>/dev/null  -exec md5sum {} \; >brokencompiz.txt

this will create a file named "currentuser.txt"

then go into the other users directory and do the same thing except change the 
output file name, for example

$ find  .  -type f   2>/dev/null  -exec md5sum {} \; >workingcompiz.txt

now do a diff on each file. You can use tools such as kdiff.

Or you can use dirdiff but I couldn't 
help you with this as I've never used it before.
