I recently installed Fedora 23 and I am using fluxbox as my window manager. When I launch gnome-terminal or xfce4-terminal, it remains fixed in the left corner of the Desktop and it cannot be moved. Moreover it stays on top of all other windows. The fluxbox title bar is also not present in the terminal. I tried setting the window manager for gnome to fluxbox using gconftool-2 but that did not help.

I have switched to LilyTerm but I would prefer using gnome-terminal and more importantly learn what causes this behavior. Also when launching other gnome applications, they do not appear with the fluxbox title bar but can be moved/resized.

Update: If I run xcompmgr and then launch lilyterm, it also behaves similar to gnome-terminal and xfce4-terminal i.e. no title bar and stays on top of other windows.
