help with desktop/window configuration

i recently upgraded/updated from 10.3 to 11.0. i was trying to figure how to change the look of the desktop and windows and have done something where when a window opens it is not able to be moved around the screen and there is no window title bar with the min/max/close icons in the top right corner of the window. i am running kde 3.5.9 (release 49.1).

does anyone have an idea of where to start to remedy these issues? i have tried to find something from the kde website and various documents from kde, but i have not been successful.

also, is there a site or other reference that helps with direction/guidance to properly change desktop themes and the like?


well i got this figured out. i had “enable desktop effects” checked in the simple compizconfig settings manager. unchecked and all is well now.
