compiz-fusion and fusion-icon problems

So, i compiled all software for compiz-fusion over at in the order it said too (took a and then installpkg each one in the same order. Now whenever i try to run fusion-icon, it does not work, here is what it outputs in the console:

 * Detected Session: kde
 * Searching for installed applications...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/fusion-icon", line 57, in <module>
    from FusionIcon.interface import choose_interface
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/FusionIcon/", line 22, in <module>
    from util import env
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/FusionIcon/", line 421, in <module>
    decorators = CompizDecorators(_installed)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/FusionIcon/", line 228, in __init__
    self.command = context.Plugins['decoration'].Display['command']
KeyError: 'decoration'
I have no idea where to begin with this, any help would be great.

Never installed one from slackbuids, I used packages from Thera are also some dependencies that have to be installed before you begin with compiz-fusion installation: orbit2, gconf, intltool, libsexy, sexypython, also available at

so decided to give sabayon a try since I used to have gentoo and while I enjoyed it, i got tired of waiting on it all the time. Anyways, compiz-fusion comes installed along side it and in fully working condition as, so thread really serves no purpose to me anymore, though others may still be looking for a solution.
