Widgets in MATE?

Post by freshtamatic »

DOes MATE support widgets? I'd just like something simple to show temperatures in the laptop.

You can get those older Screenlets installed I just helped a guy in another thread,
viewtopic.php?f=47&t=288351

I used to use the temperature one in particular myself way back when I first started with mint.
I just installed Screenlets myself for something to do...I don't see the desktop very often. I was a little disappointed that every single screenlet ended up in the menu. I guess you could remove them from there. They never used to do that.

I'll keep an eye on this thread.

He did indeed - me - and it all worked. :D
Take care,

Minimize your therbligs until it becomes automatic;
this doubles your effective lifetime – and thereby gives time to enjoy
butterflies and kittens and rainbows.
