MATE 1.8 and LMDE

MATE 1.8 and LMDE

Postby cyb3rc0de on Mon Apr 14, 2014 5:30 am

Hi guys!

Does anyone know when will MATE 1.8 be included in LMDE? Will it be released as Update Pack or as new ISO?

As I found on MATE wiki, MATE 1.6 is marked as obsolete as MATE 1.8 is out.

I would like to know when will MATE 1.8 be inside LMDE so I can enjoy MATE at its best :D

Thanks everyone!
Meh! :P

Mate 1.8 will come with UP9 probably this summer.

Now from me to you, I have been able to install MATE 1.8 on LMDE. I had to pick only one lib from Testing to install everything. Be careful if you're not too experienced at mixing repo. It can be dangerous for your system. :wink:

MATE 1.8 is not yet officially ready for Wheezy/LMDE since there is a dependencies problem. It works however on testing/Jessie. Until the problem is solved - either by the Debian team or the MATE team - there will be no MATE 1.8 for Wheezy/LMDE in the official current MATE repo (1.8 is available in the unsigned archive folder, as 1.4 is).

Pushing 1 lib is not a dependencies problem. The truth is that it would not be pushed in LMDE repo before UP9. Even if it was working well now. Mint team is focusing on Cinnamon 2.2 and Linux Mint 17 not on LMDE. They don't have time to test if MATE 1.8 don't have bugs. :wink:

I applied to join LMDE team and help the things getting more smooth on LMDE MATE edition. I still haven't got any response from them.

What do you want to do? Pushing things in repo? Clem will not allow you to do this.
The only thing (and that's still a big thing) you can do is join the test team when the next UP comes and install it before everyone and report breakage and solutions. :wink:

Don't care. Whatever job they give it to me will be fine.

Is there any update regarding the availability of MATE 1.8 for LMDE? I have barely received any updates since i installed this distribution.

This is the normal behaviour of LMDE.

If you insist on always having the latest Mate version before it is officially introduced with an UP this page http://wiki.mate-desktop.org/download tells you how to do it (see Debian and Linux Mint sections). But don't complain if it breaks something.

I have MATE 1.8.0 on LM17 and MATE 1.6.1 on LMDE. I prefer 1.6.1. I like the way the Panel is setup to double up what is running when the Panel properties are increased to 36 pixels. If there are any other changes in 1.8.0, I haven't seen them yet.
