ok i found the solution for the problem , in case anyone else face the same problem here is how to fix it :

i solved the problem for missing Adwaita files by installing the default gnome themes .

execute in terminal : sudo apt-get install gnome-themes-standard

then the compiz was able to load the default Adwaita theme with it's default window decoration .

after that to use the theme you want like Mint-X , do the following :

1) install the default gconf-editor : sudo apt-get install gconf-editor
2) execute gconf-editor and go to "/apps/metacity/general/" modify theme value to the theme name you want , example "Mint-X"

then logout and login in again , Mint-X window borders will load properly :)
