ALL of your window decorations are missing.

What release of Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Edubuntu are you running?

How did you install? From a text-mode (Alternate) cd?

What happens when you run the command (use Applications/Accessories/Terminal):
metacity --replace

Try typing into a terminal gnome-wm

If that works go to System -> Preferences -> Sessions

scroll through and look for Window Manager and make sure its checked.
