Thanks. I did find the icon. It shows it's using the gtk decorator. I
switched it to emerald and it changed the look (but I don't know what
it's supposed to look like, the title bar is reddish and the buttons are
on the right - but they look plain - a dash, a box, and an x).

Is there any way to re-install? I've tried re-installing related
packages but it made no difference. I mentioned previously that I
created a new account and when I login to that account the window
decorations look as they should for default 10.04. So it's not a
graphics chip issue (plus live cd works normally also).
