Sudden disappear of windows decorations

Post by rob1 » Wed Jan 31, 2018 12:57 pm

Mate 18.2 & also 18.3

This happens sometimes - I don't know why. Keyboard hits are blocked, too. Only mouse works.
When I open a terminal from the menu, I can enter

Code: Select all

(sudo) marco --replace.
Formerly, I tried this from the Crtl-Alt-F1-terminal. There an error can't connect to X server is raised.

Now, from the desktop, it works. But marco stays active. Ctrl-C does not stop it.
When I close the terminal window, the decorations are gone again...

in control center > desktop settings > windows select marco+compton
switch between compiz and marco+compton and see which works best. compiz needs a lot of configuring to get the extra effects but so does compton

Thanks - I adjusted accordingly - let me check whether the problem occurs once again in the next two weeks.
