Just as aside - the above can be simplified to
PID=$(pgrep -u janek -f xcompmgr)
and if you really want ps and awk then
PID=$(ps auxw | awk '$1 == "janek" && $0 ~ /[x]compmgr/{print $2}').
Also a status from 'killall -u janek -0 xcompmgr 2>/dev/null' can
be used but this does not give PID (which is not that important).

Moreover a string "janek" is likely better replaced above by an
ouput of 'id -un'.
