Default compiz on debian, no window borders shown

Hi guys:

I installed the compiz on my debian (lenny/sid, 2.6.24, xfce4), but after I executed "compiz --replace", the following messages are returned:

Checking for Xgl: not present.
Detected PCI ID for VGA: 01:00.0 0300: 10de:042b (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

Checking for texture_from_pixmap: present.
Checking for non power of two support: present.
Checking for Composite extension: present.
Comparing resolution (1280x800) to maximum 3D texture size (8192): Passed.

Checking for nVidia: present.
Checking for FBConfig: present.
Checking for Xgl: not present.
...........

the 3D desktop is working(rotating), but without the window borders, which means one window is overlaped with each other. Thus I can not resize or move it. Can anyone tell the problems?


I installed the following related packages(maybe some already there not listed) and attached the display card info with xorg.conf:

Default compiz on debian, no window borders shown

I've had lots of trouble with compiz on lenny, most of them can be solved by
downloading the latest driver for you graphics card and installing fusion-icon.

fusion-icon will call compiz with the parameters it judges to be right, and most

of the time, they are indeed correct.

You should also try installing emerald (although it's not in the official debian repos anymore).

It seems to that your Nvidia GLX isn't working, try running 'glxgears' (in the mesa-utils package) from a terminal, this problably won't work then.

Check your Nvidia X Server Settings / OpenGL/GLX Information. If No GLX Extensions are shown in the top right box you'll have to update your driver. I use version 169.12 and everything works fine, but you'll have to check if your card is supprted. For some more info on your xorg.conf check this link: http://forum.compiz-fusion.org/showthread.php?t=7940



Also, I start compiz using 'compiz --replace ccp'

IMHO, the compiz packages have a missing dependency on the compiz-fusion
packages. Without compiz-fusion plugins, compiz isn't decorating the
windows properly or breaking window management in some other way.

In short, I had the same problem, installed compiz-fusion-plugins and
compiz-fusion-plugins-extra, and things seemed to work after that.

Thanks a lot. I haven't updated the driver of my graphics card since it's been working quite well.

I have installed fusion-icon and emerald as well, it seems now working well except some issues on auto -startup

Also, I start compiz using 'compiz --replace ccp'

I used the* NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.09-pkg1.run as the driver of my graphic card, it seems it's working ok by running "glxgears", with output:
15638 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3127.518 FPS

.................................

It's working fine now after I installed the extra packages(full package from a different source), but I can launch it only by "compiz --replace". The other launching ways like 'compiz --replace ccp', 'compiz --replace gconf & gtk-window-decorator&'

In short, I had the same problem, installed compiz-fusion-plugins and

Thanks a lot, bro! I purged the original related packages on my system, and changed the source to:
*deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/shames/debian-sid/desktopfx/unstable/ ./


and installed the full packages (compiz*, compiz-fusion*, fusion-icon, emerald), and now it's working fine.

There are still two problems on auto-startup.
1). I followed some guides I found out on internet, and changed the following two files:


/etc/xdg/xfce4-session/xfce4-session.rc,* /usr/share/desktop-base/profiles/xdg-config/xfce4-session/xfce4-session.rc
*
I changed
Client0_Command=xfwm4
to
Client0_Command=compiz (or compiz --replace)



but nothing happended after I entered xfce4.
For now I have to use "compiz --replace" as the auto-started application for xfce4

Is there any ways to launch 'compiz' upon startup, instead of starting xfwm first and 'compiz --replace' it?


2) "emerald --replace" can only be started up successfully after "compiz --replace"

I thought I can only start "emerald --replace" without executing "compiz --replace", is it correct?
Now when I want to use emerald, the error message indicating
(emerald:6034): Wnck-WARNING **: Property _NET_WM_NAME contained invalid UTF-8


Can I start emerald as I do for compiz??

Thanks a lot.

IMHO, the compiz packages have a missing dependency on the compiz-fusion

packages. Without compiz-fusion plugins, compiz isn't decorating the

windows properly or breaking window management in some other way.



In short, I had the same problem, installed compiz-fusion-plugins and

compiz-fusion-plugins-extra, and things seemed to work after that.


Thanks a lot, bro! I purged the original related packages on my system, and changed the source to:
*deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/shames/debian-sid/desktopfx/unstable/ ./



and installed the full packages (compiz*, compiz-fusion*, fusion-icon, emerald), and now it's working fine.

There are still two problems on auto-startup.
1). I followed some guides I found out on internet, and changed the following two files:



/etc/xdg/xfce4-session/xfce4-session.rc,* /usr/share/desktop-base/profiles/xdg-config/xfce4-session/xfce4-session.rc
*
I changed
Client0_Command=xfwm4
to
Client0_Command=compiz (or compiz --replace)




but nothing happended after I entered xfce4.
For now I have to use "compiz --replace" as the auto-started application for xfce4

Is there any ways to launch 'compiz' upon startup, instead of starting xfwm first and 'compiz --replace' it?



Now I'm back to normal* without starting* 'compiz --replace' upon startup, the default window manager is xfwm4 (I changed back to it), but it seems that same problems happened as with compiz. No window border shown, and I have to use "xfwm4 --replace" to back to normal.


Any one has idea about how this happen?

Thanks a lot.
M.Y.


2) "emerald --replace" can only be started up successfully after "compiz --replace"

I thought I can only start "emerald --replace" without executing "compiz --replace", is it correct?
Now when I want to use emerald, the error message indicating
(emerald:6034): Wnck-WARNING **: Property _NET_WM_NAME contained invalid UTF-8



Can I start emerald as I do for compiz??

Thanks a lot.
M.Y.

I think I found it. I deleted the ~/.cache and restart X, everything is ok.
Is this place saving the history session?



Thanks a lot.
