I'm having a problem with the permissions on certain files for Compiz. When I switch to the compiz window manager, the window decorations disappear. No matter what window decorator I switch to (emerald or kwin), no window bar. Switching back to the kwin window manager results in me getting the window decoration back. For a laugh I ran startx as root, killed the default wm and did:
compiz --replace ccp& emerald --replace&, and what do ya know I got everything running with emerald... I killed the 3 windows, su'ed to my account, did the same thing and no window decorations.

Question is, what files do I need to check their permissions on for the window decorations while compiz is running?

have you enables "window decoration" in CompizConfig? If not, activate that plugin and add "emerald --replace" to "Command". Maybe that alone will do the trick. Maybe root has simply another configuration...

Huh... I wonder when that changed to be off... I thought I had it on, guess not. Thanks, everything is working again.
