Updated MATE packages for Slackware 14.1 from MSB project now available


Subject says it all. Repo is located at: http://slackware.org.uk/msb/ and is compatible with slackpkg+.

Here is our ChangeLog.txt:

Code:
Fri Nov  8 04:12:50 UTC 2013
Congratulations to Patrick and the entire Slackware crew on the release of
Slackware 14.1! We've got some shiny new MATE 1.6 packages for both
architectures ready to go. These packages were built from the
'14.1-mate-1.6' branch from our Git repo located at:

http://github.com/mateslackbuilds/msb

Several packages were added to extra/ and one package (dconf) was removed from
base/ since dconf is now included with Slackware. As before, MSB packages do
not replace any stock Slackware packages.

Enjoy!

I think it would be very interesting if there's a MATE (slack)build for Slackware ARM.

If KDE4 works nice with an ARMv7 processor and 1GB RAM, (ignoring hid glorious bug called "Plasma icons unclickable"), there are many ARM devices that have 512MB or even 256MB RAM.

Even I have a netbook that works well and responsive under Slackware ARM, but has (only) 256MB RAM.

So the most comprehensive DE for it, is XFCE. Here MATE has bread to eat, as MATE (aka GNOME 2.x) works well with a small amount of memory, if I remember right...

Actually, you can build the packages for ARM Architecture, since the SlackBuild is ready to do that
It's just that we don't have an ARM machine to build the packages, so we can't provide it

Many thanks chess and willysr!

It is wonderful that Slackers have an excellent version of Gnome for Slackware.

This is the most important thing missing from Slackware for me.

Thanks so much for this very useful project!
