It can also happen if the compiz gconf database got screwed, which can happen
if you upgraded from something earlier than 0.0.13-0.12.20060721git.  In that
case, uninstall and then reinstall compiz.

Other than that, as Adam mentions, compiz relies on an external helper
program, gnome-window-decorator, to draw the window decorations.  The
recommended way to start compiz is to go to the System->Preferences->More
Preferences->Desktop Effects and click the big button there.  This will start
compiz the right way and set it as your default windows manager.  If that
still doesn't work for, please let us know.


I have to do # compiz --replace gconf every time my system starts to
have windows borders.
