btw what you are running is sugar-emulator thus emulation of sugar e.g.
it's pretty hard to use frame in non-fullscreen mode (but being in
fullscreen mode you can't use non-sugar apps comfortable). The native
mode is to login to sugar session. AFAIK there wasn't attempts to
integrate sugar into regular DEs except switching to metacity (and it is
a question if loosing sugar DE paradigm is worth while).
