No.
Compiz works on Xfce and Mate Desktop.
I run it on Mate with and without extra GPU card fine since many years.

i love the wobble windows.

If you're after wobbly windows and a spinning desktop cube, check out the Extentions that can be used on Cinnamon. They're in the Main Menu under Preferences.

Man i tried Wobbly Windows! It gives a warning that it is incompatible with your version and might break your system.
I still tried installing and applying it but it is very glitchy. Just like i'm using windows 7 lol
Any fix?

I wouldn't know. I've not tried that extension, or Mint 20. So I'm not the right person to help you with this.

Compiz has always been, and will probably always continue to be, just a heap of glittery unstable garbage. Sorry. :mrgreen:

Yeah man! I've also started believing this. Any suggestions for customizing Cinammon?
