I've installed Cairo-Dock on my Fedora 19 LXDE PC and while all is well, I have the dock sitting on an opaque black rectangle.

I then installed compiz & ccsm, but still everytime I restart the PC, the black opaque rectange is back until I click on "Composite-Manager".

I've even looked around the "CompizConfig Settings Manager" for anything like autostart but to no avail.

How would I be able to get compiz to start automatically with Fedora?

Thanks in anticipation.

LXDE attemps to load the window manager from the user's lxsession configuration file from ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/desktop.conf, if it does not exist, it will attempt to load the global configuration file /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/desktop.conf.

Replace the openbox-lxde command with the window manager of your choice:

For compiz:

window_manager=compiz ccp --indirect-rendering
