one thing to check/try is to make sure you have the
package 'kde-window-decorator' innstalled, and run compiz
compiz --replace && kde-window-decorator
This may give you the titlebar and buttons, etc, and will look like a
standard kubuntu window decoration.
You also can try using the emerald window decorations, by installing emerald,
and running compiz like this:
compiz --replace && emerald --replace
Then you can try out some of the themes
To get back to your normal desktop, you can run this command from the kmenu's
Run Command dialog;
so you don't have to log out or kill your xserver
