It seems Mate 1.8 is now released!

Also it was a very nice surprise to find that msb repo is prepared for this allready. So I went ahead and built Mate 1.8.0 everything went fine, exept there was an error on gnome-main-menu-1.7.0, wget failed to download the source. Had to correct url in gnome-main-menu.SlackBuild:
Code:
# from:
wget -c http://pub.mate-desktop.org/releases/1.8/$PRGNAM-$VERSION.tar.xz
# to:
wget -c http://pub.mate-desktop.org/releases/1.7/$PRGNAM-$VERSION.tar.xz
Other than that, everything is nice and smooth, many thanks to willysr

Just did built the latest set of packages for current64. The only issue that came up was that once the latest packages were installed, a bunch of x-caja.desktop windows came up once I logged in. It did not do this again after. Although the packages were built on a clean virtual installation, but home environment is probably not nearly as clean.

Just tried it on a newly created user with a clean $HOME and did not have that issue. So, it seems to be because of something in either .config or .local which related to an older version of MATE. Anyway, pointing that out in case someone upgrading has the same issue.

I tested on my laptop to upgrade from 1.6 to 1.8 and did not found the caja issue
Basically that bug is happening on other distro as well, but i minimized it by using --sync in caja.desktop

I upgraded from 1.7.98 to 1.8. I have seen it happen to me from time to time. No biggie though as it only happens once. Other than that, 1.8 is looking really good.

I've got a little hint on mouse theme. When using QT applications in Gtk based desktop environment like Mate, Xfce or others, QT apps (skype and vlc comes to mind) tend to display default X mouse cursor (black mouse). It is possible to match it's style by placing index.theme file with content:
Code:
[Icon Theme]
Inherits=NameOfYourMouseTheme
For system wide effect, this file should go into /usr/share/icons/default/ (may have to mkdir it).
For user only effect, place it into: ~/.icons/default/ (may have to mkdir it).

For the rest, you can try QT Config in Mate Control Center.
That's all
Hope it will be usefull (not sure if this is mentioned somewhere, but I had to search for this).

P.S.
There is a very nice mouse theme, called HaikuHand that fits very nicely into Mate. Highly recommended

Audacious is still coming up as the default file manager again.

maybe? Not sure if that would do it.

Have you tried running these two commands?
Code:
xdg-mime default caja-folder-handler.desktop inode/directory
xdg-mime default caja-folder-handler.desktop application/x-directory
I think it must be set manually per user and it's already noted in the KNOWN ISSUES

I know it's a known issue, but it just perplexes me that MATE's own file manager is not set as the default one right of the bat. It is easily fixed though.

You can also set it in mate-control-center via prefered programs, a nice gui way.

Is there a way to add 'Run Application' to the menu? There is a panel applet and Alt+F2, but I want to find a way to add the command or applet to the menu.
