simple compiz questions (intrepid)

I am trying to get started with compiz but there are some things I can't
figure out:

1. How can I set compiz to start by default? I found information on the net
talking about system -> settings -> desktop effects, but I don't have a
"desktop effects" option on Intrepid. Am I missing a package or something?

2. I normally use   a 3 x 2 workspace. With compiz on I can cycle through
the workspaces side ways but not up & down. Is there something I should do
or check?

3. Once I start compiz, say with "compiz --replace", I lose the window bars.
I tried using "gtk-window-decorator --replace" but this didn't give me my
windows topbars again. Any hints?

Thanks in advance for any information,
