Change your theme to a gtk 3 compatible one.

Re: Anybody knows if Mint 18.2 Sonya will have MATE 1.18 or 1.16 ???

I think it is ready as it is in the 'Linux Mint 18.2 [Implemented]' section in the roadmap. I have tried Mate 1.18 using a Manjaro Mate release, it works great and is not beta.

http://tipsonubuntu.com/2017/03/15/inst ... ntu-16-04/ Might work for you but I have not tried it.

Re: Nemo auto mount not working

Thanks for the suggestion. I have tried various things with no success. My main desktop is MATE and that is working great but I have concerns about Compiz breaking things in 17.3 or 18, and so decided to try Cinnamon out on a spare PC. I am unsure why automounting stopped working when it worked fine...

Re: Nemo auto mount not working

Since no response, I will reinstall cinnamon instead when 2.8 comes out.

Nemo auto mount not working

I am trying out cinnamon and so far having an interesting experience. However one strange thing, nemo has stopped auto mounting automatically, and it was yesterday. I am not sure what has changed. The dconf settings have not changed with automount being checked on org gnome desktop media-handling an...

Re: A week of using Manjaro...

Cinnamon maybe being dropped as Arch are dropping it for Gnome. I have been using Manajro Mate version for a few weeks, and it has been a great experience. I am on all the latest packages and linux kernel 3.8, and it is working great. The only thing missing is an equivalent of Remastersys so I can m...

Re: Mate 1.6 released - Someone already tried?

HardyH has not had much luck with mate 1.6, so best to do a backup with Remastersys or Clonzilla live, before attempting the upgrade. I have not had issues with it, but others have. I will be trying my Manjaro upgrade once I get home from work.

Re: Mate 1.6 released - Someone already tried?

k357k9,

I do not know about being quicker but on my setup 1.6 felt smoother than 1.4. Bootup time etc was the same, so maybe it is the switch to gsettings.

HardyH,

That is a shame to hear, as mate 1.6 is working very well on my computer. I do not like Xfce, so each to their own. Good luck with your Xfce setup.

My apologies, but then I can not help, as I am using Mint 13. Actually I have an idea, as I did this a long time ago when upgrading from 1.2 to 1.4 and had a similar problem.

Re: Mate 1.6 released - Someone already tried?

I am using Mint 13 (as I like this LTS), and it upgraded fine. Yes, it can seem a problem when you get the default ubuntu desktop, but for me it was straightforward to change back. This is what i found: Compiz works fine in Mate 1.6, and no settings are lost. GTK2 icons etc are put back using the ri...

Re: Mate 1.6 released - Someone already tried?

if you want to try Mate 1.6, I recommend you backup your current setup using Remastersys and then do the upgrade to Mate 1.6. For me Mate 1.6 is working great and feels smoother than Mate 1.4 did. I use Mate with both Linux Mint and Manjaro, so cant wait to upgrade to mate 1.6 in manjaro once that h...
