Search on 'windows decorations'. For my old nvidia cards I need to have
an /etc/X11/xorg.conf with:

Section "Screen"
	Identifier	"Default Screen"
	DefaultDepth	24
	Option	"AddARGBGLXVisuals"	"True"

The 'Option	"AddARGBGLXVisuals"	"True"' is what gives me the window

What graphics card & drivers are you using? Also have a look through:
