Re: MATE and Compiz

What I was looking for is compiz not to use 30% as it did not use to in Linux mint 11. I want to run Compiz all the time.

Re: MATE and Compiz

I guess you could make two launcher buttons on the menu with

compiz --replace

and another with

killall compiz

to turn on and off respectively.

Re: How to get Mate from Mint12

You just have to login to MATE. See this site, I know it is about ubuntu 11.10, but the same thing applies, and the screenshots may assist you.

Re: MATE and Compiz

Install compiz and ccsm etc using synaptic package manager, you will find it is not installed.
Then do compiz --replace, and it should work. (To do this permenantly add compiz --replace to startup applications).

Hope this helps.

keyboard volume keys and mute key

I have MATE working, but the volume keys and mute key on the keyboard do not work. However, they do work if I switch to the Gnome 3 environment. Any ideas how to fix this?

MATE is fantastic by the way, well done.
