How to prevent KDE4 applications to start in fullscreen mode on Fedora 11 with Compiz Fusion.

I am experiencing problems with most of my KDE4 applications installed in my Fedora 11 box. I've recently installed digikam, konqueror, konversation, ktorrent etc. and everytime I open each of these applications, its always opening in full screen mode.

How to fix this problem?

After googling, I found out that Compiz Fusion is the one causing this problem. To fix it, open Compizconfig Settings Manager and go "Utility Section" and click "Workarounds" then untick the "Legacy Fullscreen Support". Cheers!
