Compiz going to work in Mint Mate 20 Upgrade?

Post by JTJersey »

I'm using Mint 19.3 Mate with Compiz effects enabled. Has anyone heard if there are any issues with Compiz if an upgrade from 19.3 to 20 is done?

A Radeon RX570 PCI-E 4Gb DDR5. I did the upgrade this morning. Compiz is MOSTLY working. Can't seem to get some things to stick between reboots though. Window Management/Centered Windows and Wobbly Windows keep unchecking themselves.

Compiz is now working fine. There is a profile setting that needed to be changed. Preferences/Backend needed to be changed to "mint" and everything stuck. Mint 20 upgrade from 19.3 seems to be working just fine.

In my main Mint 20 system under Backend it's set for "GSettings Configuration Backend" and Profile (at the top of the window) changed to 'mint". After making those changes Compiz was running like it was on 19.3.

I just got it working, I installed MATE desktop with apt, changed my copiz settings as mentioned but nothing worked, then i was poking around in the setting(where Compiz Config Settings manager resides, just below the is "Windows", click that and the window that pops up labelled "Windows" change windows manager to compiz and then whammo, Wobbly Windows ;)

Cheers
