Re: Mate desktop updates

Linux Mint does not update their mate packages after a release, so whatever version Mint ships with is what you're stuck with unless you follow the links below. They assume you're using Mint 13.

Why post in the MATE forum then? Wouldn't it make more sense to post in the GNOME3 forum where it belongs? You should get more help there.

Re: Startup applications problem

The problem is with clipit-startup.desktop. MATE is not part of the OnlyShowIn field. https://github.com/shantzu/ClipIt/blob/master/data/clipit-startup.desktop.in You can manually fix this yourself by finding clipit-startup.desktop on your system and adding in MATE to OnlyShowIn.

It's already built, but stefano-k needs to upload it to the tridex repo still and he's asleep. 8-12 hours maybe? Definitely within 24.

Re: Mate Desktop Environment - GNOME2 fork

I think the only thing I'm missing from MATE right now is volume control with my fn up/down buttons. I added xfce4-power-manager and put it in the startup menu to get my battery icon on the panel. So once I get volume control it will work as well as the other desktops I use. mate-settings-daemon-1....
