Any help ya'll can give would be much appreciated. I'mma go restart x now so I can move things again...
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:
LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 compiz --replace decoration ini &
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.
