    get compiz working in Fedora 26

    I have Fedora 26 on my desktop computer. I want to get compiz working. I like 16 desktops and wobbly windows!

    When I look for compiz, I get a blue icon with stars and a magic wand. It says at the bottom 'Compiz start'

    A click on this leads to a blank screen and a blinking cursor. All I can do is ctrl alt F3 to get another login terminal, login and force a restart with sudo shutdown -r now

    This is not ideal.

    If compiz won't work with the basic gnome desktop that comes with the Fedora installation, how can I get say the mate desktop to start by default?

    Very grateful for any tips or links!

    try
    Code:
    sudo dnf group install "MATE Desktop"
    and if necessary

    Code:
    sudo dnf group install "MATE Compiz"
    however I reckon the first should suffice

    You can also install Xfce, as that works Just Fine with Compiz.

    Any advice in this post is worth exactly what you paid for it.
