xfce AND compiz

Hello all there.

I have slackware 12 installed on my PC, I have compiz 0.5.0, and xfce 4.4.

compiz is working well, all GL characteristics are ON on the xorg.conf.

Just I want to know how to conserve xfce window decorations at the same time I use compiz.

Thanx to all.

You can't use the XFCE window decorations when using compiz or beryl because they use their own window manager which replaces the gnome, kde or xfce window managers.

Heliodor allows Gnome window managers to be used with beryl, and aquamarine does the same with KDE. I don't know but there might be a way to use heliodor with xfce as well.
