minor trouble with compiz - solveable :)

this has been solved - see last edit

I'm a very happy compiz user, but I have to choose between two minor problems:

One: I can't configure compiz with gset-compiz, when I use this startscript:

killall gnome-window-decorator
DISPLAY=:1 LD_PRELOAD=/usr/share/fglrx/diversions/ compiz --replace decoration wobbly fade minimize cube rotate zoom scale move resize place menu switcher transset trailfocus water &
gnome-window-decorator &
Everything works, but the wobbling is pretty extreme (that's what I'd need gset-compiz for)

Second: When I watch fullscreen videos, I get a line from the top left to the bottom right corner of the screen, it only appears when something is moving, + performence problems. Gset-compiz works though:

## from Ubunutu - Wiki:

killall cgwd 

cgwd & 
compiz --replace gconf &

## from blog

#    #!/bin/sh
#    killall gnome-window-decorator
#    wait
#    gnome-window-decorator &
#    compiz --replace gconf &
cgwd seems to do the same as gnome-window-decorator. - same result.


Mind that my scripting - ability is limited to copy and paste.

And while you're at it...
What's the difference in saving a script in /usr/bin/ opposed to /usr/local/bin/ ?

apparently it has something to do with gconf. That's why it works if I load all the plugins "manually", and That's why gset-compiz won't work.
I have no idea what I could have set in gconf that screws with the video display. Maybe I'll have to reset.
(If someone knows how to reset gconf, that would be good too )


On the first page of gset-compiz there's an option "unredirect fullscreen" I unchecked it - now it works.
Just out of curiosity, if anyone knows what it does...
