I found what the problem was under KDE, in your tutorial you tell us to run these commands as a regular user:

compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp
emerald --replace

I found that both of these commands need a & sign at the end of each of these commands, which will look like this:

compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp &
emerald --replace &

once you run them like this, KDE will stop acting weird and starts functioning correctly. Now when you restart kde it no longer starts compiz automatically and you will get all the window borders and you are able to save the settings using ccsm.

Which is not the case when running gnome. Once you run these commands, compiz will work normally just like in KDE but it won't let you save any settings, another words if you run ccsm it won't let you select or unselect any plugins. Compiz command might be a little different for gnome. Gnome will also complain if you run these commands without installing /usr/ports/x11-themes/ubuntulooks first, once you install this it will stop complainning. I will try to find out why I can't use ccsm and if I find out I will let you know.

I have tested this as a startup script in Gnome:

#! /bin/sh
compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp &
emerald --replace &

I have entered this in "Sessions" as a Startup Program and it works fine.
I am also able to change settings with ccsm (which should also be run as the normal user, BTW) and the settings are saved. Now, I don't really know where these are saved, documentation mentions a .compizconfig folder, but I don't have it.
I don't have ubuntu-looks installed.

I don't have KDE installed on this machine, so can't test with this.
Thanks again for your feedback.
