I found a wallpaper slide show program for mate on sourceforge. It looks like it's made for 1.5, but seems to be working fine in 1.8.

Feel free to add it on your system, but for MSB, we will be packaging official MATE packages only
It's about maintainability

Understood, this was just an fyi anyway.

When changing the Mate panel height from 35 to 36 pixels, the taskbar icon buttons start stacking. Is there a way to stop that stacking behavior?

I believe that's the reason why they use a default of 35px

in my system, i changed to 36 (even to 40) and it's still not stacking
perhaps it's resolution-spesific?

Maybe off-topic:

I recently switched from XFCE to MATE using MSB packages and after some ironing out due to my customized Slackware installation (i.e. not a full one), I'm very pleased of the result.

A big thank you to Chess and Willysr for their amazing work.

Over time, one can only wish for MATE to be included in the official Slackware.

There's another thread started by Kikinovak about including MATE in Slackware and some people (including me) have given our opinion about it

Seems partially so. I changed the dpi from 96 to 120 and now I can push the height to 39 pixels before the stacking begins. Remains an irritating behavior.

I am not adjusting to GTK very well. How do I change the desktop icon font color?

More GTK madness? The default in the Caja (and Nemo in Cinnamon) file managers is to display the Name key in the desktop file rather than act like a file manager and list the file names. Is there a way to fix this?

Open Caja and select a directory with oodles of *.desktop files, such as /usr/share/applications. Do you see actual filenames or psuedo file names using metadata from the desktop files?
