(Sorry for bad title)

I'm using Mate and I have this problem when if I want to resize a window, the mouse icon doesn't switch to "resize mode" unless I am literally on the border of the window. I pretty much need to get it exactly on the pixel to be able to resize, and it is incredibly annoying. Anyone know how to fix this, or where I can find this in the source code so I can play with it? Thanks.

Annoying, old bug, also mentioned elsewhere. Changing your current theme (see here) would be the most perfect option. The easiest one, withou changes, is probably:

  1. be near the window border (in a generous 30-40 pixel sense)
  2. Alt+Right Mousebutton
