LXDE and Compiz - urggh

I enable Compiz and Emerald on my Centos 6.2 desktop at work. Didn't know what got into me but I then decided that Compiz would be awesome on my openSUSE 12.1 LXDE. After installing the necessary packages and changed the Windows Manager to Compiz from lxsessions-edit (Desktop Sessions Settings in GUI speak) I rebooted.

Logged in OK but quickly discovered that Windows' top panels were missing and no matter what I did, I could not type anything.


Well edited ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/desktop.conf  file and changed the window_manager = line back to openbox-lxde , logged out and in and all is well now...CLI roxx!
