I just spent two days getting the cube effect to work, and finally did, but now when i open a window i can't close it by clicking the (X) in the corner of the page because its not there. I'm to mentally drained to try and figure it out myself.

Open a terminal, and write:


emerald --replace

Well, if you have the cube, then compiz is running as the window manager. You have to go to Advanced Desktop Effect Settings (ccsm or compizconfig-settings-manager) and enable "Window Decoration" and hopefully your window borders and controls will come back.

Just to add: Under Windows Decoration - Command, add the above line 'emerald --replace'. That is if you are indeed using Emerald.
