I know that other desktops support window compositing with Compiz.

Is it possible to enable such functionality on MATE DE?


Yes, it is possible.

One should:

  1. open mate-tweak (System->Preferences->Look and Feel->MATE Tweak)
  2. go to Windows tab
  3. in Window manager area switch Select a window manager to Compiz (Advanced GPU accelerated desktop effects) as shown on screenshot below:

    MATE Tweak - choose Compiz

Other options are:

  • Marco (No compositor)
  • Marco (Software compositor)
  • Marco (Compton GPU compositor)

Note: you can switch back to Marco (No compositor) if you want simple traditional desktop.
