• Recommendations for a window manager?


    I’m not having any luck with Marco – it seems really laggy whenever I have a game open and try moving a window around, and overall I’m just not happy with it.

    Since I know compton is going to be the top suggestion here, I’ll just say I had some issue where it would ramp up to 100% CPU, which for obvious reasons is not something I want to deal with. I wasn’t able to figure out how to fix it, and in the end I got tired of dealing with it.

    I’ve tried Metacity only briefly, when MATE was broken about a month ago after the updates and Marco wouldn’t work.

    I’m just curious to know what window managers other people are using, which ones they feel work the best, etc. I’m not really interested in anything fancy, in fact Marco would be just fine if it weren’t a laggy mess :P
    What do you guys use?

  • Mate-Compiz forever!

    Compton with Mate seeems to be rather unusual combination.

    However, Marco is not that laggy here. I’m not a big gamer, and under normal circumstances some screen tearing is noticed only when a window is moved or resized very fastly.
