Make Compiz Default Window Manager


Hello,

I've installed Cairo-Dock on my Fedora 19 LXDE PC and while all is well, I have the dock sitting on an opaque black rectangle as can be seen in the snapshot.

I then installed compiz & ccsm, but still everytime I restart the PC, the black opaque rectange is back until I click on "Composite-Manager".

I've even looked around the "CompizConfig Settings Manager" for anything like autostart but to no avail.

How would I be able to get compiz to start automatically with Fedora?

Thanks in anticipation.

I think the canonical way to do it is:
Code:
compiz --replace
I see reports of that resulting in errors though.

Thanks 273.

compiz --replace end us giving the following error
Code:
Warn: No 8 bit GLX pixmap format, disabling YV12 image format
plus 2 things I observed:
  1. This too is session related
  2. Anything I type anywhere is displayed in the terminal window - eg if in Firefox I type google.com, it's as if I've typed in in the terminal window
