Xgl and GTK-Window-decorator strange thing


After enabling Xgl, everything is OK, except window borders, but I open gnome terminal, run 'gnome-window-decorator' and window borders appear. If I close gnome terminal, window decorator stop and border dissapear again
How to make gnome window decorator start everytime and stay in memory?

This is because the window decorator is running inside the terminal. When you close the terminal, it kills the decorator. Try clicking Alt-F2. In most distros this will bring up a "run-application" dialog box. Run it from there. Regarding how to make it run on startup, I don't know, but I'm sure someone here does.
