Running Mate Enviroment from command-line

Postby hecconte on Sun Sep 30, 2012 4:33 pm

Hi! Just got here from Ubuntu 10.10 (I'm on a netbook so I 12.04 with Unity does not run so well).
How do you start the Mate desktop enviroment from either the console or the Alt + F2 command-line?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If you have set MATE as your default desktop environment (at your login screen), just run startx to start your graphical desktop session.
