looking good so far


So far so good, trying to simulate my actual system as much as possible, multilib minus the NVIDIA - and so far MATE1.18 works just fine under my virtual Slack VM

However while messing with the themes and settings, now for some reason I cannot click on anything but what is only on the desktop. I thought maybe I had messed something up with virtualbox, but no issue with mouse integration... It resolved itself as soon as I exited and came back into MATE - I could then finally click on the items up on the taskbar this time. Again I don't know if that is really MATE or Virtualbox being dumb, but overall I like it so far.


Got GNOME Terminal the way I like it, and also GParted installed - can't live without the transparency effects

yes, there are some theme-related glitches on GTK+3 build and this are known issues for some time but the developer still hasn't fixed it yet.

Everything is working fine here. Just now really getting into testing it though. My customized Mint-X themes were not looking right now that Mate is pure GTK3, A little editing of the code and all is well again. Thanks for all the hard work Willy and Chess .

I downloaded the 9x themes from gnomelook, but I still cannot get the win9x or win2000 layout as the shown.

That's an old theme i assume?
I'm not really sure it will work with GTK+3 without major changes

How come there is no GDM package? neither 1.7 or 1.8 has it.

If you want a display manager and don't like those shipped in Slackware you could use lxdm, available @ https://slackbuilds.org/

Additionally, ponce provides lxdm packages under the lxde sub-directories of http://ponce.cc/slackware/

You will also find gdm packages in these Salix repos (fitting Slackware 14.2):

Yes it does, but it is kinda odd not to include it.

Thx I will try that! I did compile and use lxdm - still it is a bit odd to not include lxdm along with lxde itself , same for MATE and gdm.

I don't answer for Willy but as you see here there is no source tarball for gdm provided by the Maté project, so I don't think thats odd, also considering that as xdm and kdm are already shipped in Slackware not all Maté users will want to install a third display manager.

Well lxdm is available in ponce's repos. But please note that in contrast with e.g. KDE, LXDE is component based as stated in their home page. This means that as the components of LXDE are loosely coupled if you like just some components you can use them with another desktop, or just with any window manager.
