Re: MATE-Desktop for fedora

Dear MATE and Compiz haters :-)
MATE upstream did make some progress to fix the background issue with f25.
So i decided to fire up current state of work to copr repo.
https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/co...te-Compiz-Fix/
As this is a developer version and not finished yet i repeat notes for this repo here.

Description
This testing repo is for fixing
https://github.com/compiz-reloaded/compiz/issues/40
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1383272
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1420709
It is the current state of those pull requests:
https://github.com/mate-desktop/mate-desktop/pull/249
https://github.com/mate-desktop/caja/pull/731
https://github.com/mate-desktop/mate...aemon/pull/169
Repo is for f25 and rawhide (f26)
Installation Instructions
Some notes:
1) mate-desktop, caja and mate-settings-daemon have higher versions than normal fedora repo. Packages from this repo will use 2 digits as fedora package version. So only an update to this package versions is needed after installing the repo.
2) Don't mix those packages with version from normal fedora repo, as this is a complete rewrite of background handling in MATE.
3) A session restart is needed after install.
4) Don't use this repo if you're not able to restore your system to normal package versions from fedora repos without running X-Server in a konsole, if something goes wrong.
5) Be warned, this is a developer version and might have issues.

Happy testing ;-)

Thumbs up Re: MATE-Desktop for fedora

Fix is working correctly. I can have a slideshow now instead of have a static wallpaper. Awesome Job.
The only thing I noticed is when wallpapers are changing, the desktop lags a little during the transition.

BTW if anyone is looking for a slide show script It's a port of gnome-wallpaper-slideshow.

Re: MATE-Desktop for fedora

Thanks for your continued work with MATE Wolfgang, I'm not in a position to test these fixes at the moment. Otherwise I'd do so willingly

Re: MATE-Desktop for fedora

When can we expect Marco's port to wayland?
