Hi,

I've just upgraded to 8.04. When I log in and launch an app. I get no
title bars and no borders. I have to open up a shell prompt and type "metacity" then everything works just fine.

Does anybody have any ideas on how I can permanently fix this?

Thanks!

Do you have extra visual effects enabled?
What videocard do you use?

I have an ATI X550 using the fglrx driver.

In system -> preference -> appearance I have no visuals turned on.


Any ideas?

Thanks
