Compiz starts, but no window-decorations, or unable to move/resize windows
Update compiz and check if >=metacity-2.16

$ gconftool-2 -R /apps/compiz/plugins | grep decoration
/apps/compiz/plugins/decoration: /apps/compiz/plugins/decoration/allscreens: /apps/compiz/plugins/decoration/allscreens/options:
If you don't get a similar response, use gconf-editor to add decoration to the plugins
Select apps / compiz / general / allscreens / options
add "decoration", "move", and "resize" to the list

Compiz starts, but no effects are visible
Check if GConf schema was correctly installed:
gconftool-2 -R /apps/compiz/plugins | grep plugins
make sure that all plugins are listed (not only fade!). If not, try to install compiz schema manually (do this as normal user, not as root!!!):
CCSM don't use changed settings

The solution is to emerge fusion-icon!
1. Unmask the following Packages, so add them in /etc/portage/packages.keywords
x11-apps/fusion-icon ** dev-python/PyQt4 ~x86 dev-python/sip ~x86
# emerge fusion-icon
3. Optional: If you use Gnome, add fusion-icon in your autorun
3a. Klick the Add-Button in the first tap.
Name: fusion-icon Command: fusion-icon
Flash 7.0 content crashes in Firefox
If you notice that Firefox crashes upon navigation to a site with Flash content but the problem is gone when you comment out the Option "Composite Enable", try adding this:
But be aware that this option can introduce problems with other programs, such as Beryl/Emerald. In my case, there were no window decorations visible until I removed this option.
Segmentation Fault occurs when running compizrc
If Segmentation Fault occurs when running compizrc, try adding:
above the line /usr/bin/compiz
If you still get a Segmentation Fault, and used Compiz from Portage, try to re emerge with dbus enabled
USE="dbus" emerge compiz

Swsusp2 with Compiz and aiglx
Suspending with compiz never worked well for me under xgl but I've finally got it working under AIGLX. To suspend, I made a little script that would replace compiz with metacity prior to hibernation.
This assumes you have a working swsusp2 kernel already installed. Create the file /usr/bin/prepare and /usr/bin/resume
killall gnome-window-decorator & killall compiz & metacity --replace gconf &
sudo killall gnome-window-decorator & sudo killall metacity & DISPLAY=:0 /usr/bin/compizrc &
Then make the files executable
chmod +x /usr/bin/prepare
chmod +x /usr/bin/resume
I needed to add killall to my sudo list otherwise I was unable to kill metacity if i hibernated as a user.
Add the following entry to the file that opens
(insert user name here) ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/killall
Note: this is a major security risk and should only be done if you are confident that you are the only person who will use "sudo killall". Once done, execute /usr/bin/prepare just prior to hibernating. Metacity will replace compiz and hibernate successfully. Upon resume, execute /usr/bin/resume, and compiz will restore properly. You can have this done automatically if you add the following entries to your /etc/hibernate/hibernate.conf file:
### misclaunch OnSuspend 20 /usr/bin/prepare & OnResume 20 /usr/bin/resume &
