For everyone who gets those headaches trying to read up on why games freeze with Compiz-fusion/Beryl. Or why they dont have a title bar after turning glx back on afterwards. Heres my "Quick and dirty" solution.

For disabling Compiz-fusion, etc:
1) Right click the desktop and select "Create New Launcher"
2) In the Command section input this
metacity --replace
3) Name it Pre-Game (or whatever you want) and click OK

For Enabling Compiz-fusion, etc and emerald:
1) Right click the desktop and select "Create New Launcher"
2)In the Command section input one of these:
For Beryl
beryl --replace  emerald
For Compiz-Fusion
compiz --replace  emerald
3)Name it Post-Game (or whatever you want) and click Ok

It's quick, dirty, and doesnt require a script 15 lines long to accomplish something so simple.

Know a better way, please share.
Know the KDE way, please share.

good stuff! Now if they would just port Sword of the new world, and tiger woods 2007 to wine, I would never have to switch into windows again.
