Been using your Gnome 2.32 a lot for scanning negatives and photo editing and even that drops wireless from time to time. I wonder if it is the same issue with both versions? . Mate does look good and I prefer the simple menu to the more involved mint one. I can see this becoming the default desktop for Puppy Linux in the future as most old hardware should now be able to handle it.

For problems, I don't know... But I need to fix some issues in the 2.32 version, like wireless.
I will surely return to the standard menu of Gnome, to provide to rduce the size of ISO.

Here's another good tool for changing the menu. Add, remove and it's easy to change the category.

Actually, the properties of mate are more like coffee (in fact, instead of the traditional way you can boil the yerba mate, pour it in a cup and drink it just like coffee, but in this case the drink is called 'mate cocido' or just 'cocido', which means 'boiled mate' or 'boiled'). It's usually drunk bitter, with hot water and no sugar, although some people do add sugar, even prepare it with hot milk instead of water at times. Often people add medicinal plants. In the south of Brasil, especially Rio Grande do Sul, it's called 'chimarrão', and in Paraguay people also prepare it with very cold water or some cold fruit juice instead of hot water, in this case the drink is called 'tereré' and is very popular in summer. Although you can drink it alone, mate is usually a social drink, groups of friends gather in circles to drink it while they talk (the same applies to 'tereré', not for 'cocido' though). They share the same pot (which is also called mate, or 'guampa' when it is made of a horn, this last one is more popular for 'tereré') to drink, they don't use individual cups or the like, and they use a special metallic tube called 'bombilla' to drink mate (yes, they share the same bombilla, too Laughing ). When you are given some mate, you should not say 'thank you', not yet! You only say thank you when you had enough mate and don't want to drink anymore. Also, you should not stir the mate with the bombilla, you can stir 'cocido' with a spoon, but mate is never stirred. If you travel to Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay or Rio Grande do Sul you will see people drinking mate daily, at home, at school, at work, in the parks, especially in winter, but also in summer early in the morning. As someone said, when a friend comes to your house their first phrase is '¡Hola!' and their second phrase is '¿Unos mates?' (Fancy some mate?) Laughing

Your Mate desktop is fantastic using the precise base. Very Happy Also the integration with the pup menu appears to be flawless. This is the best gnome implementation that I've seen in puppy.

It's working great with my usual applications.

The only problem that I've noted so far is that my Logitech receiver will not connect to the mouse until it is unplugged and replugged. This is probably a problem with the kernel as I've experience this problem with other pups.

Cheers,
Jim
