Please change your window manager with LXSession Edit.

Hi

Compiz Fusion Icon runs very well here. You can easily switch between openbox and emerald. Type in
Code: Select all
cp ~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml /home/maces/.config/openbox/rc.xml
otherwise your old settings wont be available.

Oh I see. Make sure you have emerald and emerald-themes installed on your system. That helped me. When you have installed compiz-fusion emerald is not included, afaik.

yes emerald and emerald-themes is installed... if you see in the lxterminal in the pictures, the next to last command is
"emerald --replace".. and it give me a warning that I cannot be able to understand..

Oh sorry haven't seen it, was focused on the borders ;). For my this error says that something with the theme engine is not correct, but I don't relay know. What happen if you choose another theme?

the results is the same.. I've tryed to change settings but the results is the same.. :(

And if I try to install another window manager?
in fusion-icon menu, in the options "select windows decorator"
there is only "emerald" as avaiable window decorator..

Why openbox does not appear? This is linked with my problem?

When you use fusion-icon you have to select openbox in the menu "select windows manager". In case this doesn't work (on my machine it does)type in:
Code: Select all
openbox --replace
