Not sure if this goes here or under “general” since I haven’t made my mind up…
I am about to reinstall my system, and have decided to go back to Xfce and ditching Cinnamon.
BUT then I stumbled over the Mate pictures (I have never given it much thought) and got a very strong nostalgia feeling; last time I used Linux, 2005-6 ish, I exclusively ran the Gnome 2 desktop and loved it.
Problem is I tried a live stick (Manjaro) this morning and well… it did not play nice with my NVIDIA card. Tears everywhere. Looking at it tho, the Manjaro Mate only had one compositor option, called “adaptable” while looking on Youtube a lot of distros has 2-4 different options.
What comes as default? It sounds to me that Marco with Compton is the best choice but that choice was not in the menus on the Majaro live version of Mate.
(Also, I couldn’t figure out where you set your icon theme. To be fair it was 6am )
