Fedora Core 6 + nVidia + Compiz = No Window Decorations

I turned on the ‘Desktop Effects’ in Fedora Core 6, but I didn’t have any window decorations. Even more bizarre, my terminal wouldn’t have any text in it — it was just a blank white box. So I finally came up with the idea to run this command from the terminal:

compiz --replace gconf

And I got a bunch of these errors:

compiz: No GLXFBConfig for depth 32

A quick Google search turned up a post, which suggested adding the following to the “Device” section of your xorg.conf:

Option      "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"

Low and behold, the window borders/decorations show up!
