Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

So far so good, trying to simulate my actual system as much as possible, multilib minus the NVIDIA - and so far MATE1.18 works just fine under my virtual Slack VM
However while messing with the themes and settings, now for some reason I cannot click on anything but what is only on the desktop. I thought maybe I had messed something up with virtualbox, but no issue with mouse integration... It resolved itself as soon as I exited and came back into MATE - I could then finally click on the items up on the taskbar this time. Again I don't know if that is really MATE or Virtualbox being dumb, but overall I like it so far.
Got GNOME Terminal the way I like it, and also GParted installed - can't live without the transparency effects
Everything is working fine here. Just now really getting into testing it though. My customized Mint-X themes were not looking right now that Mate is pure GTK3, A little editing of the code and all is well again. Thanks for all the hard work Willy and Chess .
Distribution: Slint64-14.2 on Lenovo Thinkpad W520

I don't answer for Willy but as you see here there is no source tarball for gdm provided by the Maté project, so I don't think thats odd, also considering that as xdm and kdm are already shipped in Slackware not all Maté users will want to install a third display manager.

Well lxdm is available in ponce's repos. But please note that in contrast with e.g. KDE, LXDE is component based as stated in their home page. This means that as the components of LXDE are loosely coupled if you like just some components you can use them with another desktop, or just with any window manager.
