[SOLVED] I cant edit the thread title because of number of char restriction.
I had to reboot/relogin for the mentioned steps in the first link below to take effect.
I read http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/919
Unfortunately even after trying all options mentioned in the threads, if I choose compiz, the window borders disappear altogether.
I tried changing with fusion icon, and editing /desktop/mate/session/required_components/windowmanager
Compiz effects work though if I choose compiz (3d cube etc).
So, how can I make the window borders reappear?
