Bug#854718: mate-desktop: MATE and Compiz

Package: mate-desktop
Version: 1.16.1-1
Severity: normal


I was pleased to see Compiz back in the Debian repositories and installed in with MATE on Debian Unstable. It is working well for me except for the window decoration, Which is not from the theme I am using, BlackMATE, (it's the same with any other theme).

The error messages I am getting are:
compiz (decor) - Warn: failed to bind pixmap to texture
compiz (decor) - Warn: No default decoration found, placement will not be correct

I opened a bug with Compiz, but they seem to think the problem lies with MATE.


Can you take a look at it and maybe say what you think the problem is. Debian + MATE + Compiz is the perfect combination for me.
