I would also like to know how to use Nautilus or Nemo in Mate. I can run nautilus or nemo from the terminal and it comes up just fine, but trying to change the dconf variables doesn't seem to work. Any ideas, beyond making a separate launcher?

I also wanted to change the default browser to Nautilus.
The option exists in the configuration tools, retains the choice, but it doesn't work.
