View Full Version : [gnome] Docky and AWN with Mate

August 14th, 2012, 08:49 PM

So I'm trying to get a glass like transparent desktop. Emerald will manage the windows with a glass theme. Docky will also have a glass theme and the top Mate panel will also have transparency. But both Docky and AWN have a problem with Mate. They keep saying that a compositor needs to be enabled. Which I don't know how to do. I've been googling and found people stating various fixes but none of them have worked (like running Mate with compiz).

How do I enable such within Mate?

Have you already tried the method described in the lower part of this guide, which is the first search result when google'ing for "mate enable compositing"?
