That's going to depend on which window decorator you're using (e.g. CGWD, emerald).

I'm using beryl (in Fedora Core 5) instead of compiz so my window decorator is emerald. Previously, when I used compiz-quinn the window decorator was CGWD. Before that it was gnome-window-decorator.

I don't know which compiz window decorator fedora 6 comes with. See if you can find out which decorator it comes with and let me know and I'll try to find out if this theme is compatible and how you can install it.

how can I find what window decorator is running in my machine? when i run the "gnome-window-decorator" command it give me the following error

gnome-window-decorator: Screen 0 on display ":0.0" already has a decoration manager; try using the --replace option to replace the current decoration manager.


but my machine is working fine with compiz window effects. I have intel card.

thanks

Try this, open a terminal and enter the following command:

ps aux | grep gnome-window-decorator

and post the result.

so, you're running gnome-window-decorator as your window decorator... I've done a bit of googling and I haven't found how to change the window theme or whether its even possible. When compiz first came out, the window theme was hardcoded meaning that there was no way to change it.

The compiz-quinn branch came up with CGWD as a substitute for gnome-window-decorator in order to allow the user to change window themes. When compiz-quinn forked from compiz and became beryl, CGWD was replaced by emerald.

So, I guess that what I'm trying to say is that I don't know how one can change or add window themes for compiz. Sorry :(

If I'm not mistaken I believe that compiz has metacity support meaning that it should be able to use metacity (i.e. gnome) window themes.
