Mate installation Wattos
« on: July 21, 2016, 08:58:44 PM »
I installed Wattos MATE from within LXDE, it works very nicely.
I recommend to you.

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-mate-dev/ppa
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-mate-dev/trusty-mate
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install mate-desktop-environment-core
sudo apt-get install mate-desktop-environment
sudo apt-get install mate-desktop-environment-extras
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-mate-core ubuntu-mate-desktop

Nice going.

What's that icon between Chromium and Caja ?   
I typically install MATE (on other distros) using Synaptic, and selecting  mate-desktop  alone picks up the dependencies.  Do you need the multiple commands to get the extras ?

Great! Just curious...could you tell us how much RAM it uses?  :)

teejay, I don't mean to speak for wattoslove, but I believe that's the SlimJet browser icon.

Thanks, Dan - always nice to see Asia and Australia on a globe.
Of course, the New Zealanders might feel left out    :)

@teejay that browser icon Slimjet.

@Dan Lxde 190 megabytes of RAM on 64-bit Wattos, 210 megabytes of RAM on 64-bit Mate Wattos. The difference is only 20 megabytes. Lxde same processor performance.

I do the same in other distributions, worked better Wattos.
I shared my own site and Ubuntu forum in Turkey.

Slimjet is awesome. They will continue supporting 32 bit after Chrome dropped it.

Heard nothing but good stuff about Slimjet lately. Maybe it is time to have a go at it?
