I still don't have Compiz running properly in Debian. Apparently I'm not the only one with the problem.

if you know some way to get it working that would be great.

I have Compiz & Emerald running again (sorta). But I get this error message when I enable it...

I don't know what any of that means, although warning sounds ominous :P

Well, a warning is not an error and it only fails on errors. So in that idea, there is no problem, right? It works, as you say.

okay thanks. I guess I assumed if it was installed or set up correctly it would have no warnings at all. I thought it might be related to the fact that fusion-icon still locks up my machine if I try to start it. I guess I won't try to start it. :)

Then just remove fusion-icon ;). Btw, this is what I get on Konsole in KDE when I start compiz:

Everything works just fine. Each environment gives it's own warnings and such. As long as it works, I wouldn't worry about it.
