If you have an nvidia card, there's no chance that you're using aiglx as
aiglx requires open source dri drivers. You're probably using nvidia's
latest proprietary driver that includes support for
GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap extension with direct rendering as well as
with nvidia's own architecture for indirect rendering.

kde window decorator is not in a working state yet. You'll have to use
the gtk-window-decorator for now, which currently requires gconf. If
you're running KDE, I understand that you want to avoid the gtk2
dependency and we'll hopefully have a working kde decorator sometime
