Need Compiz Window Manager

Hello all, Im running Opensuse 10.2 and everything is running smooth after some config. One more thing I want to do. Im running xgl and compiz but I cannot find a way to change the windows. They used to have the CGWD theme manager but now I cannot find that anywhere. What would be the window manager for compiz? besides the default Theme? I ve been looking around and cant seem to land a good one so Any help guys thanks.

You can change the desktop effects using "gnome-control-center" In the Look & Feel area "Desktop Effects" even if you are using KDE. You can apply a different theme using "gnome-control-center" -> "Theme". I hadn't changed themes yet and tried it out. The drag bar in firefox changed to a rounded shape when I selected the "SphereCrystal" theme.

I also changed some items in window behavior such as changing focus to the window under the cursor. Changing the desktop background did not work using the gnome control center (in kde). Right click on the KDE desktop and change it there or drop a picture on the desktop and select "Use as wallpaper" from the popup context menu.
