ADMINISTRATORS: Will there be an LMDE3 Mate in the near Future??

Post by tlcmd » Fri Oct 12, 2018 11:19 am

ADMINISTRATORS: Will there be an LMDE3 Mate released in the near future (before LMDE2 Forum Support Ends)? Or am I going to have to install Cinnamon and use gnome to add the missing apps?

I'd like to know before I install LMDE3 Cinnamon for which I just downloaded the 64 bit version to a disc. And if a LMDE3 Mate is released, hopefully there will be an easy way to upgrade from LMDE2 Mate.

Thanks.

I believe this thread --> LMDE3 - Install Complete MATE Desktop will give you a starting point.

No. There are no plans for a Mate edition. This has been stated many times on the blog and probably talked about here a good bit.
When I give opinions, they are my own. Not necessarily those of any other Linux Mint developer or the Linux Mint project as a whole.

A post I made a few weeks back...

I installed Mate from Stretch backports which gave me version 1.20 but without audio integration.

I did a fresh install of LMDE3 as the install was new.

I then used these instructions that I found elsewhere in these forums:

Code: Select all

apt install mate-desktop-environment-core

Code: Select all

apt install atril desktop-base engrampa eom ffmpegthumbnailer fonts-droid-fallback galculator gnome-user-guide libaacs0 libcanberra-gtk3-module libgphoto2-l10n libsasl2-modules mate-applets mate-icon-theme-faenza mate-media mate-notification-daemon mate-power-manager mate-screensaver mate-system-monitor mate-user-guide mate-utils menu murrine-themes pluma python-cryptography python-idna python-ipaddress python-openssl va-driver-all
This gave me a fully functional install of Mate 1.16
