However, one more question: I thought that compiz was only a window manager and so it still needed a window decorator (displaying window header with close button & stuff) running (metacity). This is not true?

Marco is a fork of Metacity. Metacity is like Compiz a Window Manager. Two WMs don't play together (well?).
A more complete command:
killall -9 marco; compiz --replace & disown
Or the other way around:
killall -9 compiz; marco --replace & disown
I like that page to make forks/renaming clear:

Which package does mateconf-editor come from? I don't have this tool in my binaries.
dezo wrote:Yes, that's the right package, thanks.
But the method suggested by äxl doesn't work, the session is started without any window manager running.

sh -c "killall -9 marco; compiz --replace"
dezo wrote:No problem. I think it's better not to start marco at all because after killing something seems to keep restarting it.
killall -9 marco
chmod +x killall.sh
