Compiz and Metacity shortcuts


I re-installed Debian recently and I have a question about compiz. Is there any way to enable Compiz without replacing Metacity? I say this because using compiz --replace replaces all of my shortcuts and reduces my workspaces to two, it would even let me add more.

No there is not because both compiz and metacity are window managers.

Well shit. I suppose I could make some global shortcuts but I can't seem to make any more workspaces. That never happened in the past when I used compiz.

What shortcuts are you talking about? And as far as the workspaces, you can make more through the compiz options.

Mostly just switching to previous and next workspaces, and opening a terminal.
