I just got it working (under KDE?!). The only difference from what you've
mentioned is that I use "compiz --replace gconf&", followed by either GTK or
GNOME window decorator. both work.
could you give us the version you are using of the packages?
what kind of video card are you using?
I have a segfault of gtk-window-decorator.
I thought it would be a waste of time, cumbersome eyecandy and such, but this
thing appears to be much faster and lighter than the built-in KDE support for
the composite extension. Sweet :)
