Re: MATE Desktop for fedora 16

Note that MATE's not shown in the normal YUM update:
and yes, it's enabled:

Ever notice that as soon as you post a question, your brain functions finally pull themselves out of your anal pore and you come up with the answer? Yep, "yum clean all" refreshes yum and puts MATE's repos into the mix.
Hi Bob,
first thanks for pushing this threat to Guides&Solutions.
Mate has done a minor release jump to 1.2.0, that's the reason for so many updates.
Maybe packagekit use the user yum cache and not the root yum cache. It can happen that this caches have stored different update informations.

by the way...
if i want to install an applet for the panel, where does mate install the applets?

It has to do with the effects on the close animation tab
I took all the effects out of here and everything works fine... I just don't have closing animation but its fine...
You're right, the close animation do the issue. But mininal animation does't work correctly too.
After unminimized a window it doesn't have a focus and it is unusable. I can closed it only from the panel.
Also, the preview window hangs very often.

On the other side in compiz-0.9.4 the groub&tab plugin doesn't work.
So i used the version where all my used plugins work and that's 0.94.
Maybe new version 0.9.7 is better. I've build first test version of them today but launchpad stash libcompizconfig, so they don't work for the moment.
Life is to short for boring desktops
