I have Fc6T2  with latest mesa/xorg updates, compiz is running and I have spinny
desktop cubes, I can see vestigial wibbly windows effects on tooltips and combo
boxes, but I have no decorations on any windows, i.e no borders, titlebar,
min/max/restore widgets, and windows don't respond to ALT-F7/F8 type keyboard

Comment 1 Andy Burns 2006-08-20 14:59:43 EDT
Fully updated to latest rawhide, specifically

Name   : compiz
Arch   : x86_64
Version: 0.0.13
Release: 0.16.20060817git.fc6

and still not getting borders etc, it seems if I disable then re-enable desktop
effects, I do get menu bars on apps, but still no borders, and the menus then
disappear on next X restart.
Comment 2 Kristian Høgsberg 2006-08-23 11:34:44 EDT
This could be a problem where the earlier versions the compiz rpm would corrupt
its gconf settings on upgrade.  Try rpm -e compiz, gconftool-2 --recursive-unset
/apps/compiz (as your normal user) and then reinstall.  Thanks.
Comment 3 Kristian Høgsberg 2006-10-02 15:33:43 EDT
Closing due to lack of response, and because it's very like the gconf problem
mentioned in comment #2.
