I installed compiz fusion and everything worked fine, no problems (except for the fact that every face of the cube has to have the same background, but that is more of a limitation).

I then ran this code...
gtk-window-decorator --replace

The reason I did this, is if Window Decoration is turned off in Compiz Fusion, the title bar went away. I wanted the standard title bar to appear if that option was unchecked.

My problem now is that the standard title bar is always shown, and the title bar applied by Compiz or Emerald will not show up.

Can anyone help with this issue?

Well it appears I solved it, I navigated to "usr/bin" and typed emerald --replace.

I should have known as soon as I made a post, I would find the answer. :)

Well I cannot seem to load the theme back that appeared when I first installed compiz.

I think I have it fixed, but I would like to have the theme that Emerald started with. I think it is called Beryl Red.
