Why there's no mate-disc-burner?

Postby uuwaan on Thu Jan 17, 2013 11:20 am

Just installed LMDE MATE and totally happy with it. :D
As for now, most of my installed software is mate-*: mate-text-editor, mate-terminal, mate-file-manager (Caja), etc. And there's no disc burner. Quick googling provided me with a link to GitHub repo with Rejilla, a fork of Brasero.
Just curious, why LMDE provides MATE desktop environment but doesn't provide a full set of MATE applications? :wink:

P.S.
I'm using Xfburn for now, but it depends on packages from XFCE and this fact bothers me.

welcome to lmde :D nice to hear you are enjoying it

as for your question: you can see from the page linked https://github.com/NiceandGently/rejill ... its/master that the initial commit has 15 days (it's a new project); we can expect that with mate 1.6 this project (and others probably) will be merged to the main repo.

your choice of xfburn is a wise one :lol: it's in many ways more reliable than brasero and at least doesn't want to pull in all the rest of the DE (in brasero's case gnome) with it.

Oh, I see... Didn't notice that this repo is so young. :oops:
Thanks for your reply, I'll be waiting for this package to come to LMDE. :)
