    Stuck in Mint-X Window Border Mode in MAYA MATE


    Greetings!

    Subject line says it all. While exploring Compiz's features in Maya MATE, I shifted into Mint-X windows look mode and can't switch out. On boot-up I also receive an alert:

    "Menu Windows cannot start the preferences application for your window manager. "Compiz" has not registered a configuration tool."

    I'm getting conflicting advice about renaming or deleting a "Marco" file and changing Compiz feature preferences so I'm just going to rely on those mint sages here so this non-techie doesn't totally screw anything else up. I am funneling to mint blogs all the issues my home school has with their Linux machines since our conversion from XP early this year, so any recommendations you give is a real education!

    Thanks!

    You might want to try setting the session type at login. Click on the session icon on the login screen and select MATE.

    I'm no expert but this is how I solved another problem, hopefully it will help you too
