I've tested new versions, everything built and installed fine. Mate-1.7.90 works nice in all my computers, however I am missing sticky notes applet. It seems it is not available, I hope only temporarily, as it is most used after battery monitor and clock

*EDIT*
I was able to get sticky notes applet back, by rebuilding mate-applets-1.7.90 package from extra and then reinstalling it. Maybe it is possible that mate-build-extra.sh is building it too early? So some applets fail, but if I rebuild this package again, after rest of the mate is installed, then all the applets are present and works fine.

I was able to build everything in base and extra. Will be testing those packages shortly. However, were you able to build yelp? I installed the latest webkitgtk from SBo, but the build quites complaining about:
Code:
No package 'webkitgtk-3.0' found
Just wondering.

Thanks for the bug report
I just checked the source and it seems it requires libgtop and gtksourceview to be present for some applets to be built
I will re-arrange the mate-build-extra.sh so that mate-applets will be build later on

Actually, I did install it and it still complained. I will take a look again and see what happened. Building webkitgtk took a very long time to build.

Bah! I just caught on to the difference between webkitgtk and webkitgtk3. Sorry about that. I think I need new eye glasses.

willy,

Did you adjust the testing directory? I noticed that all the directories there are empty with the exception of yelp. Did you intend to do that?

Yes, it's all empty now
Pam and pam_unix2 are no longer needed and mate-screensaver is now moved to extra

The only thing left is yelp

I can report right of the bat that the black underline issue from QT based applets on the panel is gone.

What theme do you use?
Some people still see it from certain themes, especially a light theme

It seems to me, that it doesn't matter which theme I use (tried all the themes I have), that black space is always there. On darker themes it is harder to see, that's all It's probably a leftover bug from gnome2. But it is interesting, that it happens not for all people, meaning there has to be some factor to bring out this behavior. Like I use Slack without KDE, so my QT apps are styled only by using System -> Settings -> QT4 Config (not sure if that makes any difference, but still).

yeah, it's DE spesific bug i guess...
anyway, i hope the re-arranged mate-build-extra should fix the sticky note applet problem
