Cannot use mate-dock-applet

Post by abis » Tue Nov 21, 2017 8:18 am


I want to use mate-dock-applet, which is available i the repositories, but when I try to use it, it never runs and instead it complains with:
ImportError: requiring namespace 'Gtk' version '3.0', but '2.0' is already loaded

I understand the issue, but I was under the impression that MATE is Gtk3 now?

This is on 18.2 and 18.3 BTW.
Any help would be great!

Install the latest, 0.80-1, .deb for your system architecture from this page:
I did it, and works under LM18.3 Mate.
