I'm using MLED and mate right now and they appear to compliment each other nicely! I noticed that the MLED trim desktop script un-installed xfce and went with it as mate seems to be maturing nicely in a short period of time. I like it!

This way, you can focus the work on one release, and while people enjoying for 14.1 (which should be easier and faster because it has more complete basic libraries), you can start working on 14.0 release
Actually, it's simpler doing both releases at a time, as it's simpler cracking two nuts than just one.

This is an unfortunate coincidence, as I've not yet released the new batch of updates. Sorry for the inconvenience.

@samac:
GDM will require more deps included in MSB and since it's already provided in SBo, we will let the user to install it from SBo. Another problem with GDM is that newer version can't be installed due to unsatisfied deps from Slackware and SBo.
The current version in SBo was from 4 years ago.
OK that makes sense.

Thanks

No inconvenience at all. I've been meaning to try out the mate desktop and re-installed slack on my laptop to incorporate disk encryption so no worries. I'm never against a little experimentation. I did discover that once you have the respositories set up with slackpkgplus installing MLED is as simple as slackpkg install microlinux and it pulls all of the packages and installs them. You just need to run the trim desktop script separately.

ATM, the scripts on Github are out of sync with the http://www.microlinux.fr/slackware repositories. I'll keep you posted when everything is in sync again.

willy, one thing I have noticed is that the volume control preference never stays with my default channel. For example, I change it to PCM, but on the next login, it goes back to Master.

Can you post a new issue on mate-media?

@Willy. If you have some time on your hands, try to integrate MintMenu in MATE. This would be a nice addition.

@kikinovak: have you tried it yet? Is it working?

personally, i'm not really sure if i'm going to take this as it deeply integrates with linuxmint (and Cinnamon) or any debian-based distributions and it will require a lot of hacks to make it really works with Slackware + MATE.

By the way, i have added gnome-main-menu applet that is quite unique as well. Try to add the widget in the panel and see if it works for you

I didn't know gnome-main-menu. I just gave it a try, and I like it. This is exactly what I've been looking for, Willy. Thanks very much. No need for MintMenu now.

Suggest GTK3.11 freeze. The audacious developers are having a spot of bother over the change to client-side window decorations. Stay away from client-side widget decorations. The whole purpose of Mah-Tay is to be less gnome-ish. GTK v3.12 doesn't make sense. What's the point of having themes and all if each program's windows will look different? I don't know how the GIMP Toolkit got infested with gnome, why is GTK under the gnome umbrella in the first place? Lessee, gnome took over gtk; debian took over sane backends on a site sans https certificate; where will it all end? Me? I'm getting back to basics, writing Xlib programs in gas assembler. Don't like my windows? Don't shake my sill (or dual 2x12 headers between trimmer studs and the top plates, or my king and jack studs...sorry, the civil engineering forum is two doors down to the left).

The developer has fixed the GTK issues, so even when next Slackware uses GTK+3 3.12 it doesn't matter
