First of all you need to switch window decorator to Compiz in mate-tweak.

MATE Tweak

Then install CompizConfig Settings Manager

sudo apt install compizconfig-settings-manager

and launch it with ccsm, confirm usage, enter wobbly in search bar, click checkbox near it and confirm disable of Snapping Windows plugin:

Wobbly Windows enable

and enjoy:

You do not need compizconfig or mate-tweak. Just Open Ubuntu Software Center, then search for 'Wobbly Windows' and install it. Click on 'Extension Settings' scrool down to Wobbly WIndows and keep it ON.

There you go ! It works for me.
