When i work with compiz as windows manager, my windows are not complete (title bar is missing and white - no longer colored).

I cannot move the windos either. When Y go back to metacity no problems. I had to install compiz fusion icon for do this change, and I work no longer with unity-2d.

At the moment i found this solution. First op all i reset compiz with :

gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz-1

and unity reset to:

unity --reset

I found this at The windows are normal now. Compiz is my windows manager. The colour is back and i can move the windows.
