MARCO(1) General Commands Manual MARCO(1)
Marco – The MATE Window Manager
Marco is a minimal X window manager that uses GTK+ for drawing window frames. It is aimed at non-technical users and is
designed to integrate well with the MATE desktop. Marco is a plain window manager for the adult in you; Many window
managers are like Marshmallow Froot Loops, Marco is like Cheerios. It lacks some features that may be expected by tra‐
ditional UNIX or other technical users; these users may want to investigate other available window managers for use
with MATE or as a standalone window manager.
Marco supports several somewhat advanced but common features such as Window Shading/Roll-Up, Window/Edge Snapping, Ver‐
tical and Horizontal Maximize, Always-On-Top, Sloppy/Mouse Focus and Raising, and many more… Well, not a lot, but
This manual page documents the marco command.
