For me the best way is starting 'compiz(-manager)' early before everything.

Remember that if you gonna start 'compiz(-manger)' after everthing (autostart
way) you will need to kill kwin and this proccess would take you into visual
problems, in my case, if I kill kwin for use compiz the desktop pager applet of
kicker duplicate the number of desktops, also get deformed, plus other visual
problems, also the comsume proccesor.

I use 'compiz-manager' script in ksmserverrc and everything is fine,
fusion-icon is started too, kwin don't need to be started so there is no visual
problems. Emerald is started by fusion-icon or by decoration plugin command (as
fusion-icon is started automatically by compiz-manager I have disabled the
command in decoration plugin).

I also have disabled the Autostart way so compiz-manager don't start two times.

If you gonna use compiz, why start kwin before?

I think people of compiz is more focus in gnome than in kde, being kde more
powerfull and beautiful.

BTW ... thank you guys for your time and effort, I really apreciate it,
compiz-manager is usefull.
