Default window decoration

Bug #213233 reported by Psykar on 2008-04-07
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
compiz (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

After upgrading from gutsy2heron (8.04 beta), with compiz and emerald already installed, the default window-decorator is set to the default compiz gtk-window-decorator

This is fine (although prehaps should be changed if the user has emerald set as their window decorator, however it seems that somehow during the upgrade process gconf/apps/gwd/use_metacity_theme is set to FALSE
This means that metacity window decoration themes will not work at all until this value is changed manually, even if metacity --replace is run.

I wasn't sure if it quite fitted under compiz or not. I guess it is better to classify it as something rather than nothing?
Thanks for the link :)

Is this still a problem in Intrepid or Jaunty?
