Which Slackware version did you use at this moment? Slackware 14.0 or Slackware-Current?

any other packages outside Slackware default packages? From SBo or Slacky.eu?

One possible solution is to use make xdm use MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 instead by adding this to /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config:
Code:
DisplayManager*authName:        MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1
The other option is to recompile the xdm package with --disable-xdm-auth, but I cannot tell from the configure output here if that option has registered anywhere.

EDIT: I see it does make a difference, if I configure with the default Slackware 64 options (--prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64 --mandir=/usr/man --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=x86_64-slackware-linux) and grep config.out:
Code:
grep XDM_AUTH config.log 
HAS_XDM_AUTH_FALSE='#'
HAS_XDM_AUTH_TRUE=''
If I configure with the above options and --disable-xdm-auth, here is what I get:
Code:
grep XDM_AUTH config.log 
HAS_XDM_AUTH_FALSE=''
HAS_XDM_AUTH_TRUE='#'

Thanks for your help. I have installed full except KDE. 14.0.
I don't remember installing any other packages. This is a pretty new install as I had dual boot problems recently.

I got all the mate packages with lftp and installed all packages including extra. my .xsesion-errors have following errors/warning even after it stared.
Code:

i also set up a virtual machine of Slackware 14.0 without any DE
i compiled MATE 1.6 on top of Slackware 14.0 and it worked without any problem

about the message you got in your .xsession-errors, try to have a look on System > Preferences > Startup Applications and disable all GNOME-related services, because MATE has their own services.

I have disabled all Gnome-related services. It looks fine now.
Thanks you very much.

Can you try the patch included in this git commit?
It's not in the master branch yet, but on my branch. When it has been confirmed to fix the issue, i will merge back to master and update the mate-panel binary package

NOTE: After you run mate-panel with this patch, try "mate-panel --reset".

Just built it and I'm trying it now. Works great.

EDIT: No it doesn't. It flickers horribly in my dual monitor VirtualBox when I drag windows. I suspect that I can fix this by turning window snapping off, but I don't see a way to turn window snapping off.

EDIT 2: Solved it by running the series of XRandr commands I use to set the resolution under OpenBox. Apparently Mate wasn't quite detecting the monitors right.

EDIT 3: No, I didn't solve it. However, I did notice that the only program affected was Google Chrome. I'm working around it by switching to Firefox.

OK, i guess that fixed other problem (missing panel on dual screen), not the dual monitor setup
do you have a panel on 2nd screen? i guess that's this patch fixed

I want to use mate-terminal-colors-solarized. It uses mateconftool-2. MateSlackBuild doesn't include mateconftool-2. Were can I get mateconftool-2?

Mate 1.6 on Current works as advertised. One spot of bother configuring libsku, I usually set LDCONFIG="-L/usr/lib64" and leave the lower-case libs in LIBS. Had to change LIBS="-lgtk" to "-lgtk-3" because I have no gtk in /usr/lib64/pkgconfig, just gtk-2 and gtk-3. I figure things are heading toward GTK+3 anyway, so might as well see what blows up.

Onward to mate-games!

Mateconftool replaced by GSettings, etc. See the "Dropped packages:" section on http://mate-desktop.org/

PS Where can I get a job running `sed 's/GEDIT/PLUMA/'` to Gnome 2.6 sources? Just kidding, ran a diff on only one file to find that.

Seriously, KUDOS to the tireless folk working on this project. I'm writing a letter to your boss to demand increased salaries for all. Just looking at building a MSB tree for mate-games left me stunned.

Thanks. I'll wait for the maintainer to update it then.

I have MATE running with two monitors (my laptop's built in LCD and external LCD via displayport/DVI) and everything is working well, although this is on Slackware64-14.0 using 3.8.4 kernel (for Intel 4000 graphics).
