Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Odd, though, I can find no mention of it in the usual places. Following the instructions for getting mah-teh slackbuilds, there is is, the 1.10 release. The few mate packages I've been using are version 1.6. The administrators' work is never done. Never heard of a Linux admin who finished everything, then enjoyed a fortnight in Aruba.
git clone git://github.com/mateslackbuilds/msb.git msb
<as root to install after each pkg is built>
sed -i '/dconf/d' mate-build-base.sh
New Packages in MATE 1.10:
Packages removed in MATE 1.10:
This is a list of dependencies for the packages in the /extra directory.
1. extra/mate-applets require deps/pygobject3, deps/libgtop, and
2. extra/caja-extensions requires deps/gssdp and deps/gupnp
3. extra/mate-netspeed and extra/mate-utils both require extra/libgtop.
I believe you got it wrong
MATE 1.10 is not yet available
master branch of MSB is tracking the development that leads to MATE 1.10 and i'm documenting all changes for future MATE 1.10 in that master branch
you might want to switch to 14.1-mate-1.8 branch to get the latest MATE 1.8 release
After cloning the initial Git repo, you will be using 'master' branch which
will build the development branch for MATE desktop. Building from the
development branch is not supported and may or may not work at any given
moment. Most users will want to build from the stable branch which is MATE
version 1.8, released in March 2014. Checkout that branch using 'git
checkout 14.1-mate-1.8' to build from the stable MSB branch.
Sorry, Mate! Didn't know you da boss. I wasn't looking for 1.10, those files just appeared when I ran the same old git-clone script.
I've been using the same build script since April 9 2013. The brain cells that copied those commands from an authoritative source went back into hiding. The secretary disavows all knowledge.
At the bottom of that file is the cryptic "git://github.com/gfunkmonk2/mate-games.git" - perhaps I was planning on adding a few games back then, but I can find no mention of it now.
Please accept my apology, willysr, I've an illness which prevents me from staying current with LQ. (That got me into trouble last month when I responded to a post without reading ahead to the end of the thread.)
Off to finish tying my latest fly lure which is sure to baffle trout as I whip it close to the surface above the bar where they hang out.
