Are you sure? I actually have working pop-up notifications with
notification-daemon installed while mate-notification-daemon is not
installed on Mate.

I should add here, however, that I had the problem with the regular
windows that Petr described as well. It went away after reinstalling
my Debian system from scratch which I did when replacing my SSD (I
know I could just have transferred everything, but I wanted a fresh

In my experience, many many problems with Mate on Debian are resolved
by doing a fresh install. The mixture of packages from the upstream
repositories and the packages in unstable is a reliable source of these
problems, especially when different configuration files conflict
with each other.

I also had the problem that my laptop would go back to suspend right
after resuming in Mate, so it would always take me two attempts to
resume my laptop from sleep.

I don't really know whether it's worth trying to fix all these problems
which are probably a result from mixing of the packages when these can
just be resolved by reinstalling. Mate works like a charm now after
a fresh reinstall, there are just minor glitches left.

People were too fast and too eager installing and trying Mate which
is why I am going to upload all elementaryOS-related packages which
I am sponsoring as a GSoC mentor to experimental first. People shouldn't
use software which is split across so many packages until it has
been uploaded in full to the archives or they should refrain from filing
bug reports.
