Re: MATE Desktop for fedora 16

I guess Ravel65 will have to get involved then. The install added some 65 packages and was flawless for me, then when logged out it was a log-in option. I'm in it right now and would swear that I was in a fresh F14, Gnome2 environment.

Edit: And, back to Gnome3, error-free! Sweet.

I've tried Cinnamon before this (ti worked well). Does it have something to do with MATE not being recognized? I've already uninstalled it, but nothing different with MATE.

Re: MATE Desktop for fedora 16

Hi desouzaalex,
2 people in the german forum told me they have the same problem.
But i've tested installing MATE on a fresh standard installtion of fc16 in virtualbox. Here i can choose mate after instalation with 'groupinstall MATE-Desktop' in gdm (gdm-fallback).
Then i've installed gnome and gdm on my real system again.
Here i can also change the desktops in gdm.

Can you check if the mate-session file is installed?
Code:
[root@mother rave]# ls /usr/share/xsessions/
gnome.desktop  mate.desktop
All Display Manager searching for session files in this directory.

Check if mate-session and mate-session-xsession is installed.
Code:
rpm -qa mate-session\*
And try a reinstall of those packages.
Code:
yum reinstall mate-session mate-session-xsession
Is something striking in /var/log/gdm/:0-greeter.log or /var/log/gdm/:0-slave.log.0 ?

If nothing works and you want to see MATE, create .xinitrc in your home directory witth this content.
Code:
exec ck-launch-session mate-session
Now you can start MATE with 'startx' from the console (runlevel3 or new multuser.target)
1. create the file
2. init 1 in a root terminal
3. init 3 in the single user modus
4. login with your user name
5. startx

No, it's not there:

Code:
[root@localhost as]# ls /usr/share/xsessions/
gnome.desktop
How can I get it there?

And look:

Code:
[root@localhost as]# yum reinstall mate-session mate-session-xsession
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Reinstall Process
No Match for argument: mate-session
No Match for argument: mate-session-xsession
Nothing to do

Re: MATE Desktop for fedora 16

If a package isn't installed you can't use 'yum reinstall'
Use 'yum install mate-session mate-session-xsession'
Can you give a feedback if intall of the packages and selecting sessions in gdm works?

Your out of luck as there appears to be no i686 packages available for mate.
