View Full Version : Mate in Precise...?

Has anybody tried to install Mate (for example from LinuxMint archive: http://packages.linuxmint.com/ lisa main upstream import. allegedly this works for 11.10) in Precise.
I have several on-the-edge PPA's turned on so I worry if anything will collide.
Turning aforementioned PPA already, before installing mint-meta-mate package offers some upgrades and I'm not sure if they will wreck my install of Precise. When trying to install mint-meta-mate I get a request for install of 120+ new packages (not upgrade)...


sudo aptitude install mint-meta-mate

Abort.It looks that this Frankestein could work since it does not pull anything less than mate packages from Mint repositories:

...It did not finish since, in the meantime, I found ppa:amanas/mate-desktop (https://launchpad.net/~amanas/+archive/mate-desktop (https://launchpad.net/%7Eamanas/+archive/mate-desktop))...

So, I'll try Oneiric branch of that PPA...

It seems that aforementioned PPA is not complete, it is untested and dependencies are not set yet (at least not properly)...
So, I might, probably, wait... ;)

Nevertheless is there anybody using Mate in Ubuntu...?

Why bother, when there is gnome classic available? Check out kansasnoob's gnome classic mega thread.

But, I was, obviously, eager to try Mate. It seems I stopped at the right moment, not introducing, yet another, unstable element on my testing machine... ;)

I look forward to you joining the conversation here:

I had serious doubts when I began to look into the whole thing but be sure to look at this post:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=11465187&postcount=179

I'm doing a bit more testing each day and I'm truly amazed. Hopefully we can eliminate the need for so many PPA's by the time Precise hits final :D
