I got a lot of:

Code:
(caja:XXXXX): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_new: assertion `G_TYPE_IS_OBJECT (object_type)' failed
I installed it following the instructions from here and some extras fails during building.

I run it in parallel with KDE so, some errors (like hplip, NO glib-gobject) is by that, I think.

I attached two txt with stdout and sterr from
Code:
startx > log_mate.txt 2> error_mate.txt
I'm running -current

I just had an error while building mate-icon-theme, it called ./autogen.sh but it should call ./configure.
Happened on Slackware64 14.0.

This package hasn't been changed to use proper make dist for creating the tarballs, so it's still using autogen.sh before configure file is created.

Looking at the error log, it seems you missed some packages:
** (mate-settings-daemon:9500): WARNING **: libgstbase-0.10.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory: this requires gstreamer to be present

about this warning: GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_new: assertion `G_TYPE_IS_OBJECT (object_type)' failed
you can ignore this one. It's caused by newer glib/gtk libraries which deprecated some functions, so several assertions failed, but it doesn't caused anything bad

mind to tell us which extra packages failed during building?

this will remove the ability to add volume control applet, but this is the solution i can came up with without changing Slackware's default packages. Newer gstreamer *might* have fixed this problem, but it may cause additional changes since not all packages are compatible with newer version of gstreamer-1.0 yet

Thanks for clarifying that the precompiled binary package is working. I have added the information on CURRENT.TXT

I think you are right. The 1.6.1 tarball dropped the autogen.sh but the upstream devs left it in the git repo, and so it never came up on the radar. I just pushed an update to the msb git repo to fix this. Thanks for reporting!

Edit: Updated packages are being pushed to the mirrors, too.

Yes, my mistake
i downloaded the tagged snapshot from their git repository, not one from their release directory
that's why it's still working on my machine since they still have autogen.sh and not configure

Well it did error out on me with a message about not finding autogen.sh. I edited the slackbuild to ./configure and it build okay after.
Using Mate for some hours and I really like it. Nice and speedy.
