    Composition Managers trouble

    hello everybody
    i'm having some REALLY annoying troubles with composition managers in Lubuntu 12.04.

    i've installed Cairo Dock, which needs a composition manager.
    the dock alone looks like this in the Desktop:


    if i start the xcompmgr in the LXTerminal, it becomes like this (i don't know why that strange shadow appears around the calendar screenlet. if possible, i'd like to take that off)


    after starting the xcompmgr, it keep giving me errors at the LXTerminal screen:

    Code:
    error 8: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) request 151 minor 6 serial 3717
    error 9: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) request 148 minor 4 serial 3718
    error 4: BadPixmap (invalid Pixmap parameter) request 54 minor 0 serial 3773
    error 8: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) request 151 minor 6 serial 57103
    error 9: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) request 148 minor 4 serial 57104
    error 4: BadPixmap (invalid Pixmap parameter) request 54 minor 0 serial 57175
    error 9: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) request 152 minor 1 serial 64786
    error 3: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) request 138 minor 6 serial 64787
    error 3: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) request 20 minor 0 serial 64788
    error 3: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) request 15 minor 0 serial 64789
    plus, the dock doesn't works pretty good. it creates a blank area when it's disappearing from the desktop (what happens when i maximize any window).


    and at last: if i close the LXTerminal window, the xcompmgr stops working. it aparently closes too.

    i've also tried Unagi composition manager, with similar issues.
    and i wasn't even able to install Cairo Composition Manager. it's not available trough apt-get... and, also, i want a low-resource composite manager.

    does anyone knows why the composite manager isn't working as it should?? i don't know if it have incompatibilities with LXDE or something like that...

    sorry for my bad english, and thanks in advance!


    EDIT: when i start xcompmgr, the LXTerminal becomes unusable. i can type in it, but when pressing Return, it does nothing. if i close it, the xcompmgr closes too :/
