Beautiful beyond words Jejy... gorgeous! You've really outdone yourself this time! ( And I'm speaking from the screenshots... I already know that the product is fantastic coming from your adept hands! )

Can't wait to try the precise version on my LXpup. Cool

Oh yeah! At the moment I happen to be posting this from Fluxbox v-1.3.2 ( compiled by OldYeller - where did he ever disappear to anyway? ), in the SlimBoat browser, all this installed upon your LXpup with Apt-Get/Synaptic. I LOVE IT!! Cool Hmm...I should email you a screenshot. lol

Later mon bon chum! A la prochaine fois!

Cheers/Amicalement,

Hello Bro ! Very Happy

Thank you to try it !
Just a tip, to change a gtk theme correctly, you must remove /root/.gtkrc-2.0. If you keep it, you'll not be able to change theme from Mate.
I'm amazed that you still like the version with apt-get.
I'll tell you a secret Cool , Maybe once I have finished packing the main WM, I'll start a project : Quantal + Apt-get. If I have enough time.

Have a nice day !
Looking forward to read you.

I am unable to load mate desktop environment. As suggested by you, I have also deleted /root/.gtkrc-2.0.

rameshiyer,
What is your Puppy ?
Did you install Mate sfs ?
Did you log out and type "xwin mate-session" ?

If yes,

From JWM, open a terminal, and type "mate-session" ( without "xwin" ), what is the result ?

Thanks,

How to logout?. No logout menu in my system. My puppy is Precise 5.9.3.

mate-session result is as follows:
mate-session (9250) GLIB-GIO error. Setting Schema.org.mate session is not installed. etc.

Hi Jerome

Mate 1.5.5 seems to work OK on Slacko 5.4.0.3 and on Precise 5.4.3 but I also have problems on Precise 5.4.92 (Precise 5.5 Beta).....

I get as far as a green stripy screen with a small clock but then it sticks and needs ctrl-alt-backspace to escape.

I tried booting nox to jwm and then ran mate-session > dmesg.txt in a terminal. Many many warning messages appeared in the terminal and had to be killed with ctrl-c

The contents of dmesg.txt are:
Code:
MATE_KEYRING_CONTROL=/tmp/keyring-9zzKPg
GPG_AGENT_INFO=/tmp/keyring-9zzKPg/gpg:0:1
MATE_KEYRING_PID=9649

I think he means logout of jwm

so Menu>shutdown>exit to prompt

and off you go.

I cannot make this work with Slacko 5.5. This is a dissappointment.

What happens? Xorg crashes. Screen blinks black, I see a cursor for a moment, and then screen blinks black again -- and then I am back at the prompt looking at "Exited from X". I have tried several drivers for my Intel 945GM graphics, nothing works.

I will try again with Slacko 5.3.3, later.

Sad

EDIT: mate-1.5.5-slacko.sfs seems not to work with Slacko 55 and also not with Slacko 533. MD5sum has been verified to match Ibiblio -- jejy69, could you verify that MD5sum with what is on your computer where you store these files? The given MD5sum for this file is: 9680595965b4e228c076b77da689e5c6

Thanks!
