Compiz-Fusion & emerald do not want to run correctly


Hello,

I try to make working Compiz-Fusion & emerald on my computer but I get some problems ... When I run "compiz --replace && emerald --replace"
I lose the window manager (so far, it's normal) but emerald does not replace it, then there is finally no window manager and compiz-fusion does not work too, no default commands work.
When I type "compiz --replace" I get this message :
Code:
compiz (core) - Error: Couldn't load plugin 'yes'
ccsm works but no plugins are enabled ...

To install compiz-fusion I install these packages :
Code:
compizconfig-python-0.8.2
ccsm-0.8.2
simple-ccsm-0.8.2
compiz-bcop-0.8.2
compiz-plugins-main-0.8.2
compiz-plugins-extra-0.8.2
compiz-plugins-unsupported-0.8.2
emerald-themes-0.5.2
emerald-0.8.2
libcompizconfig-0.8.2-r1
libcompizconfig-0.8.2
compizconfig-backend-kconfig-0.8.2
compizconfig-backend-gconf-0.8.2
compiz-fusion-0.8.2
compiz-0.8.2
Can you help me ?

Thanks,

I decided to run "compiz --debug --replace", I got these messages :
Code:
compiz (core) - Debug: Could not stat() file /home/naaman/.compiz/plugins/libcore.so : No such file or directory
compiz (core) - Debug: Could not stat() file /usr/lib64/compiz/libcore.so : No such file or directory
compiz (core) - Debug: Could not stat() file /home/naaman/.compiz/plugins/libyes.so : No such file or directory
compiz (core) - Debug: Could not stat() file /usr/lib64/compiz/libyes.so : No such file or directory
compiz (core) - Debug: Could not stat() file libyes.so : No such file or directory
compiz (core) - Error: Couldn't load plugin 'yes'
Anybody knows what to do ?

I think the problem is libcompizconfig that is newer than 0.8.2. Check out this thread in Gentoo Forums. Downgrading everything back to 0.8.2 version solved the problem for me.
