I already enabled emerald as the window decoration provider command, and I have a theme configured for emerald.

But when I start compiz by compiz --replace, I get no window title bar. Is there something I forgot to configure?

IIRC from my days playing with Compiz, you need to run a separate window decorator, like gtk-window-decorator for example. – jw013 May 7 '12 at 4:29
@jw013: Apparently, that's what emerald should do; but still (@warl0ck), have you tried emerald --replace? – sr_ May 7 '12 at 11:21

Installed emerald and enabled Window decorator in ccsm, the title bar emerged.
