If I use MATÉ with Compiz enabled I can't change the window border, it always remains the same.

Another issue with the same environment: Caja doesn't inherit the gtk2 theme when Compiz enabled.

Without Compiz the window borders and Caja's gtk2 theme looks OK: http://goo.gl/pBnHo

Debian Wheezy i386 (up-to-date) / MATÉ 1.1.0
Lenovo ThinkPad T61 / Intel GMA965 / Intel C2D T7100@1.8GHz / 2GB RAM

Hi, we're having problems with Mate + compiz at the moment.

Might as well add the "aero snap" functionality to the list of issues. http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=206&t=88650

This problem could be solved. If I start gtk-window-decorator manually like this:
gtk-window-decorator --replace --metacity-theme "Equinox-iVolution Rounded"
the named theme is being applied. So the current metacity window border theme name should be passed to gtk-window-decorator automatically.

Having the same issue as well. I'm guessing it's MATE not properly passing the theme to the window decorator because it's assuming that marco is the manager.
