Description

This issue is happening when I am in the MATE DE.

I have a Macbook Pro which I successfully installed Ubuntu 14.04 then I used the "Trisquelize" script to migrate that laptop to Trisquel 7. I then fully updated my system and did the graphical "update-manger -d" upgrade.

My issue is the MATE interface is missing several things. One of them being the Close and Minimize buttons on every window. There are other issues but lets just start with that.

here is a screenshot of my DE:
