Compiz-fusion opensuse loose the title to each window
 
Hi I have managed to install compiz-fusion on opensuse 10.2 and most of the effects are working fine, however I have a real problem in that no title bar is displayed on any of my windows. I dont have a minimise maximise or kill button so have to do everything through the keyboard. I am using KDE 3.5 anyone heard of this any know of a fix?

Make a file in /home/yourname/.kde/Autostart named Compiz and copy paste this to it:

#!/bin/bash
sleep 10
compiz --replace ccp &
sleep 15
emerald --replace &

You can adjust the sleep times if you want.

Start kde-window-decorator (KDE, obviously) or gtk-window-decorator (Gnome and everybody else who likes gtk-themes) after starting compiz.

simple solution
 
Go into compiz configuration manager and then window decorations. Type in gtk-window-decorator --replace for window decorator. If you want emerald, then install it and then type emerald --replace. It's explained here:

I had the same problem and it is ANNOYING AS ALL HELL.

when executing gtk-window-decorator it issues
Code:

(gtk-window-decorator:3999): Gdk-WARNING **: Using Cairo rendering requires the drawable argument to
have a specified colormap. All windows have a colormap,
however, pixmaps only have colormap by default if they
were created with a non-NULL window argument. Otherwise
a colormap must be set on them with gdk_drawable_set_colormap

(gtk-window-decorator:3999): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_cairo_create: assertion `GDK_IS_DRAWABLE (drawable)' failed

how to solve this problem? Because it looks like this error causing the title gone away.

Thank you very much
