Re: File Manager gets stuck in Panel Mate 18.0

Hey guys, I hope someone will see this as it is like pulling teeth trying to figure out where to post this stuff! I'm not running Mint Mate now so I'm not sure if I can post a bug report through a Live Session or not?

Here is it, hopefully one of the mods will see this and pass it on.

Panel Bug was fixed but will not be included in the Mint iso for who knows how long.
"Updates depend on the Mint team, and I'm not familiar with their release cadence, but this won't be part of the stable MATE release until January or February, and then Mint would need to include them in their following release, so some next year? Sorry, that's how we currently handle this... It takes time for these things to trickle down to specific distro releases :/

Maybe someone from the Mint team can create an installable package? Maybe they have a developer preview of the latest builds?"

I would very much like to start using Mate again so please tell me what needs to be done to fix this?

Based on a (very) quick search of this, it looks like the only way you can install the fixed version of Mate (which appears to be version 1.23?, see here) is to manually install it. So, unless you're a pro, it looks like you're simply going to have to wait for a newer version of Mint to use Mate 1.23. Mint 19.2 uses Mate 1.22. Maybe 19.3 will use 1.23. But who knows?

BTW, I'm using Mate version 1.16 on my current distro and I don't have the issue you're dealing with. Also previously used all of the Mint 18 versions with Mate, and never had this issue.

Odd numbered versions (1.23) are in-house testing, never released.
Mint doesn't have the entire Mate ... You may want to install each of the individual packages from the Mate website, or try another distro.
Best of luck

Thanks guys :D

I'm now looking into Debian's Mate just in case it works better. I've waited for years to see if this issue was resolved and it was not so time to move on I guess. I've tried Ubuntu's Mate and don't like it, it's good just not what I like. I've liked Mint's versions the best for years but things change I guess. Mainly running Kubuntu now since Mint Dropped the 17 Series of KDE.

FWIW, I'm running Devuan Mate and it works great.
