Chess: does previous package (without the patch) does have the issue of missing panel on second screen?
If it does, then we can consider this as a bug and i will push this to master

Support fot GTK+3 is planned for MATE 1.8, not in current release

As far as I can recall, GNOME 2 has always kept the panels on the primary screen. I can't see how to put a panel on the external monitor when the laptop screen is on, however. I can right click on the panels on the laptop but that just creates a new panel on that screen. I can't move them over to the external monitor.

I think you need to set it to extend or something like that, not using a clone configuration

Here's the bug report

I am still having an issue with the screensaver. No matter what I set on the time, it turns on within a few minutes (around 5). I have it set to 20. This is on two different laptops. I'm wondering if I have something in .config that can be overriding it.

I think the fix is still in git commit, not yet released in public releases
See here http://git.mate-desktop.org/mate-scr...d06c8a3bc895a7

Whew...I thought it was me. Good to know! Other than that, MATE has been VERY solid for me.

@stormtracknole - you're not alone. gnome-screensaver (now mate-screensaver) has always been a bit wonky for me. Glad to hear that other than the screensaver, MATE has been working well for you. It's my daily desktop and has been rock solid and using fairly light resources.

How can extra GNOME apps like Brasero or Gnote (which I both use regularly) be integrated into MATE?

MATE is not a full blown DE such as GNOME or KDE, so it's only focusing on main applications. Third Party applications such as Brasero and GNote will have to installed separately from Mate just like other third party applications listed on SBo Project. Lack of developers working on MATE is another reason why they don't have faster release cycle.

Brasero only requires libunique which is already installed when you build MATE packages from GIT, so all you need is build Brasero using SlackBuild script from SBo or use sbopkg.

I don't know about GNote as it wasn't listed in SBo yet, but if i looked at ArchLinux's GNote package, Slackware-Current already covered all requirements for GNote

Update: GNote requires gtkmm3 from SBo in order to be installed.
I have GNote SlackBuild in my SlackHacks

Back when I was using Mate (maybe a month ago), I was having problems with spontaneous shutdowns. My laptop would just randomly shut down. It wouldn't crash; it would actually initiate the shutdown process (spontaneously) and then complete it.

I have no idea if Mate is the cause, but I stopped getting this after I switched to i3.

@dugan - that's bizarre. I've never had that occur on MATE (or any DE for that matter). Nobody else has reported anything like that AFAIK and I'm not sure how Mate could have been cause.

Honestly, some joker hacking it and shutting it down over SSH is just as likely. It was connected to the office wifi at the time.
