1. Log into "GNOME" session.
2. Enable "Desktop Effects".

There existed some decorator problems for the latest "compiz" versions
but before, everything seemed to work correctly although extremely

The graphics card is an "R100" based "ATI Radeon All in Wonder".
Unfortunately, I have not other system at hand in order to test "compiz"
for a driver other than the "radeon" one.
