My Linux Mate 14 config with compiz activated

Today, I share my Linux Mate 14.1 config.

I'm switching from Ubuntu to Mate and I'm a little bit disappointed. So, the first thing for me was to get a desktop theme similar to my Ubuntu. I found Crunchy-orange which is like Ubuntu Human dark theme. Very nice.

Then, I activated compiz. I installed Compiz and CompizConfig Settings Manager (ccsm) from the integrated software center. I opened ccsm and I needed to :

  • activate windows decoration and change the window decorator command to "/usr/bin/compiz-decorator" to avoid that windows borders disappeared.
  • activate widnows move and resize because, if not, you cannot move anything
  • activate compiz on startup with mateconf-editor and change /desktop/mate/session/required_components/windowmanager from 'marco' to 'compiz'
Wooo... I backed to the future!!! This looks like Ubuntu 10.04 ... but with a kernel up to date  :) :) :)
