is there a way to get Compiz 0.8.8 to work under Mint 14 Mate?
Compiz 0.9 in Mint 14 is unity optimized and quite dysfunctional and incomplete in many aspects ( e.G. panel thumbnails broken, window animations broken, seems this is not needed/wanted by unity)), but the compiz 0.8.8 packages have some dependencies that seem not to be included in the fork ( compiz-core is one of them).
Any tips to get Compiz 0.8.8 back in Mint 14 MATE are highly appreciated
For reference, this was fixed for Hardy by giving compiz-mate repo a higher priority (800) than linuxmint repo in /etc/apt/preferences

No i386 packages. so if you're on i386 arch, either build all from source (apt-get source), or wait for the re-fork and rebuild of matepiz.

0.9.x series is for unity. All 0.9.x series were buggy as hell, with 0.9.6 never officially released, and 0.9.7 considered first stable, just prior to Ubuntu LTR was announced.
0.8.8 is the latest version for non-unity-shtuff.
This fork is based off 0.8.8 of all packages, except CCSM which never updated past 0.8.4, but then also has simple-ccsm 0.8.8.

A temporary solution is to give this repo a higher priority than linuxmint repo in /etc/apt/preferences (aka apt pinning), to prevent apt from pulling 0.9.x packages from mint repos, which conflict with this fork.
Code: Select all
