gtk-window-decorator: Screen 0 on display ":0.0" already has a decoration manager; try using the --replace option to replace the current decoration manager.
janusz@ubuntu:~/Pulpit$ compiz --replace

 After "compiz --repace" compiz was reloaded, but window decoration was still missing. Before reloading compiz, I can't move windows, but I can reach them by clicking on panel or directly on visible part of window; after reloading - I can move window on top, but I was completely unable to reach other windows by clicking them or on panel and also I was unable to typing (menu was clickable, so I could save terminal output, but only overriding existing file).
"Metacity --replace" works without spuprises.
