Next, you need to replace the window Manager Marco, which is set amidst MATE default on Compiz. For this you need to install (if not already installed) system configuration Editor - dconf-tools, which also has a default in the programs or run a command in the terminal:
sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
Open the Editor dconf and navigate to the following address: org/mate/desktop/session/required-components and in the name of the windowmanager change the value from marco to compiz.
Or run a command in the terminal, which does the same thing, only faster:

After the next login, you can use Compiz effects, such as a Cube desktop, Sticky Windows and many others. Instructions on how to configure them, you can show in the tab site called Compiz.
