How Do I Create Sessions In Maya MATE Like In XFCE?


Greetings:

For some reason I just automatically boot-up Maya XFCE just fine and get a sessions selection/creation menu on log-in, but I'm given no such create/name session options in booting-up MATE. I do get a boot-up menu with choices such as Last Session, MATE, XFCE Session, Select Language, Remote XDMCP Login, Run Xclient script, Secure XRemote connection, and if I log into MATE I get the previous session screen without any means to first name or create a new session as in XFCE. Am I missing something in my MATE set-up?

Thanks!

It looks as if saving the current session is the only available option at this time.

Thanks for the response, Frank! REALLY feels good to know your query actually reached someone!

What an oversight! How ironic that XFCE is superior in some respects than the more advanced Maya!

You are welcome.

If you post something here and don't get an answer, the most likely reason is that no one who has stumbled over the thread has an answer. I was just fortunate to have a Mint with MATE computer I could experiment on.
