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

When can we expect Marco's port to wayland?

Re: MATE-Desktop for fedora

hello, I want to ask if mutter is supported in fedora's mate or not?

ubuntu does offer that support through mate tweak (does not exist in fedora): https://github.com/mate-desktop/mate...ter/issues/196

marco for me is having serious tearing issue when scrolling, I can see a distinct slash from top left to bottom right everytime I scroll, enable (cpu?) compositing doesn't help

compiz on the other is too complex for me...

Re: MATE-Desktop for fedora

You can start mutter or any other WM with fusion-icon right-click menu if mutter is installed.

Re: MATE-Desktop for fedora

I have installed Fedora MATE 26 on 4 of my 5 machines; so far it works really great!

Please keep up with the good work.

Coming from Ubuntu Mate, initially I had some problems inputting Chinese characters. But thanks to helps from forum members, all the problems turn out to be due to my unfamiliarity with the Fedora build of MATE.

I switched from Fedora to Ubuntu about nine years ago. Now moving back to Fedora, I sincerely hope it won't be too long before I can contribute to Fedora MATE development.

thanks, installing mutter and clutter together and use fusion-icon (and a reboot) works for me

EDIT: ok maybe not, it just crashed... lol

still sticking with marco then, sometimes it fixed tearing, other times dont @.@

EDIT2: it doesn't matter mutter install with clutter or not (I thought the extra thing can use OpenGL but looks like it doesnt depend on it but BASED ON it), mutter still crashes on mate and probably will not be fixed or WONTFIX lol

EDIT3: looks like it actually Firefox that does *forced* OpenGL fixes the tearing, other apps outside Firefox still somewhat tears...

Ok looks like the crash is caused by missing *gnome-settings-daemon* schema, installing just that with mutter fix the crash (and fix the tearing + GNOME-ish side effects decorations), /solved
