I have tested this as a startup script in Gnome:
compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp &
emerald --replace &
I have entered this in "Sessions" as a Startup Program and it works fine.
I am also able to change settings with ccsm (which should also be run as
the normal user, BTW) and the settings are saved.
Now, I don't really know where these are saved, documentation mentions a
.compizconfig folder, but I don't have it.
I don't have ubuntu-looks installed.
I don't have KDE installed on this machine, so can't test with this.
Thanks again for your feedback.
