Re: Mate Desktop Environment - GNOME2 fork

After playing around with Cinnamon for a while (on a very new laptop) I decided it wasn't ready for primetime... still too many niggles. Font rendering for example. I moved to MATE which I thought felt like a much more mature, stable product.... BUT it still doesn't work well with Compiz... all sort...

Re: How can I control notifications

DrPhil... pretty much everything in Linux is customisable. I'd find it hard to believe if at the very least notifications can't be turned off altogether.

Like you say, Mint is top class.

Re: How can I control notifications

Have to say I find this annoying too.

is there a way to either turn off notifications altogether, or to select which notifications I wish to receive?

Many Thanks

Re: Watchdog Error after sleep

To answer my own question, in case someone else has this issue,

blacklisting the mei module seems to work... mei is the intel management engine interface.
I found this solution kicking around the net mainly on the Arch Linus forums.

Re: EPSON not printing duplex

I can post a screen shot, but the duplex option simply doesn't seem to exist on mine.

I am doing exactly what you describe.

Re: Mate Questions

Hi,

Ahh... something clicked. I seem to have made some progress.
I've got the drag and drop working now in ~/.themes.... thanks.

All seems to be good.

The only thing that doesn't seem to be matching the theme is the enhanced min menu (the one with favourites etc).
That's still doing its own thing!

Re: Mate Questions

I must be doing something wrong here but I am having big issues installing new themes on MATE. I've extracted themes into .themes in my home folder... and they don't appear in the appearance preferences. I have also tried dragging and dropping a theme into the appearance preferences. It just bounces...

Synaptics tap click not working

Hi All,

Was working fine under Mint 12. Now, under MATE on Mint 13, tap click not working.

I tried installing gpointing-device-settings... didn't seem to help after I ran it and checked the options.

Anyone got any ideas how I can get this working?

Many Thanks

Thanks. But can't see a duplex option for mine... even though I'm using it nicely under Windows.

Mate Questions

Hi All, I've just found myself switching over to MATE having been using Cinnamon for a while. MATE feels much more mature than Cinnamon and I'm enjoying that right now. However, I have a few MATE related questions, 1. At the moment when my laptop isn't touched for a minute or so, the screen dims qui...

Re: Cinnamon settings>themes>window theme...

Sure I get that. But I mean adding window themes and Gtk+ themes... i.e. adding those which are not included in mint 13.

Re: Cinnamon settings>themes>window theme...

Thanks bimsebasse. That is kind of confusing, but clear now.

Is there a way of loading new window themes? And Gtk+ themes too?
Are the procedures very different?

Many Thanks

Re: EPSON not printing duplex

If anyone could shed any light on this I'd appreciate it... because I have exactly the same issue. Different model on Epson printer, but I am also missing some key functionality of the all-in-one including duplex printing. I too downloaded the linux drivers from the Epson website - installed as a de...
