View Full Version : [SOLVED] cloudtop packages

January 4th, 2016, 01:10 AM
While installing ubuntu server I decided, on a whim to install the ubuntu-mate-cloudtop package. The thing is I can't seem to find out anything about them. When I installed them I was under the impression that they were used for a browser based desktop but I have no idea how to use them. Any info would be appreciated.

It's a metapackage. It contains no software itself, but merely pulls in a bunch of related dependencies.
It is *not* a browser-based desktop, but a reduced MATE-based desktop for terminal servers...though still with alsa, cups, and libreoffice.

$ apt-cache show ubuntu-mate-cloudtop

Thanks, that will still be useful for me, but the cloudtop name still throws me off. Much appreciated.
