Since I've installed KDE 4.7.4 had many problems, but most were resolved the same day. The one that remained is that I cannot change window decorations whatever theme I select in KDE settings. Effects seem to be disabled AND when I press logout or shutdown from menu the area of kicker menu becomes a black box.
Does anyone know hot to fix this? I tried re-installing kwin but that did not help at all.

Reads like you suffer from graphics issues. Did the last update pull in new versions of xorg-server/mesa/graphics-drivers? Which graphics card/driver do you use?

This is i915 kernel driver with "x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel-2.17.0-r3". xorg-server has been updater a month before KDE.

Found resolution in http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=111&t=98827&p=212470&hilit=kwin#p212470.

  • kwin -replace &
  • add user to video group
