Thank you, NoOp for replying.

Thing is that if I rightclick the titlebar of any window, the system menu
does appear and the wm doesn't crash.

Anyway -- and excuse me for being offtopic here, but I installed Natty
because Ubuntu 10.04 had no drivers for my chipset, I was unable to use my
network card. Had no time (I usually do this OS installing business at
night) and to be honest do not know how to install these drivers. I am sure
that if I could install the kernel version that 11.04 is using, I could run
10.04 without problems.
Mobo name is Asus p8p67.

Anyone could point me to some steps on getting this kernel on 10.04? Is
compiling the only option?
