The stuff going missing means that compiz loaded, but it didn't load properly. What you are most likely missing is a start-up script like the one below:
Code:
#! /bin/sh 
LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 compiz --replace decoration ini &
kde-window-decorator &
The LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 part is very important. I cannot get compiz to load on any of my machines without it. I didn't get compiz working until I created the script above.

A word to the wise: if you use the script above, and decide to add to it, be sure to keep the ini plugin from being the first one after --replace. For some reason, some machines won't start the decorator if the ini plugin comes right after --replace. I don't know why it is, but I do know my PII machine has that problem. Fortunately, it's easily fixed.

Hope that helps.

Blessed be!
Pappy

Installed everything I think I need to get compiz to run, but when I run the command I get this:

Code:
stagger@Boris:~$ compiz --replace ini decoration wobbly fade minimize cube move place resize rotate scale switcher water zoom &
[1] 3113
stagger@Boris:~$ compiz: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work.
compiz: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

Read my posts above yours. You will see I had the same problems and how I fixed them.
