    When I start compiz, I can't move windows around anymore.

    Since upgrading from 10.04 to 12.04 I found I didn't much like the new GUI, so I switched to Xfce4. I ran apt-get install xubuntu-desktop and am now running Xfce. But I liked some of the features the old Gnome had, like being able to zoom in on something, so now I'm playing with getting Compiz to fill that gap. I'll type into a terminal the following, and get the following warnings:
    Code:
    $ compiz --replace ccp &

    You can see some warnings about window placement going to be wrong. I don't understand precisely what's going on though, and why I can't move any windows around after I start compiz. Can anyone help me solve this?
