I have Lubuntu 12.04 on my laptop. I just installed compiz and ran compiz --replace to switch from openbox to compiz.

It's mostly working but there are no windows borders. Window decoration is enabled but that's not helping.

You can install CompizConfig Settings Manager from Software Center and then:

  1. Run CompizConfig Settings Manager
  2. Type decoration in the Filter text box.

    enter image description here

  3. Activate Window Decoration by clicking on the check box.
  4. You can click on the Window Decoration button for more configurations.

try compiz --ccp instead. ;-)
