I recently installed MATE desktop alongside my new i3 installation, since I like to have a more "classic" desktop available for certain tasks. So far everything is working great, but I'm facing one rather annoying problem:
I chose "Marco (Compton GPU composit)" as my window manager in MATE Tweak, which makes animations look way smoother than with "Marco (Software composit)".
But whenever I log into MATE, I'm not seeing any window frames, and MATE Tweak says that the window manager I'm using is not supported. Then I have to switch to Software composit and back to GPU composit in order to get it working.
What can I do to avoid this problem?
Please tell me if there is additional information I can provide.
Thanks in advance.
