Re: How to change compiz windows theme?

Found a way to do it ... I am using MATE and Compiz in LMDE. 1) Install ubuntu-tweak_0.7.1-1~oneiric1_all.deb 2) Select Tweaks tab 3) Select Theme 4) Set it all up in here partially works, but the 'Windows Theme' combobox does work and will change the window border correctly. Most of Ubuntu Tweak do...

Re: System monitor on the panel;

Have you tried Conky?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conky_(software)

It does not work on the panel, but I found it better than system monitor.

However, if that is not an option there is a system monitor applet.

Re: keyboard volume keys and mute key

Anybody got any news about when this will be done? I was hoping it was going to be in 1.2, but I still have the problem.

Re: MGSE won't be maintained in the future > says Clem

Posted earlier: MATE is very nice for those of us who still love Gnome 2.3. I hope it keeps developing. My main issue with it is high CPU usage with compiz enabled. Solution (from xpander): U need to get updates from tridex repo mate-session 1.1.2 or something.. that fixed the high cpu issue with co...

Re: MATE and Compiz

Yes doing killall on Marco makes it work, is there a fix for this bug in another repo that I do not know about? I found putting 'killall -9 marco' in the startup applications with 'compiz --replace' also made my machine bootup faster as well as shutdown faster, but I still had to do another 'killall...

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.

MATE and Compiz

I have MATE working, using the latest nvidia drivers - 290.10, and I have compiz working with it (using the compiz fusion icon). However, the CPU usage, when idle is between 30 - 40 %. When I do 'killall compiz', the CPU then goes down to 1% when idle. Any ideas how to get compiz to use minimal reso...

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.
