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=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.

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.
