I forget to note bugs :
-Mate Center doesn't work
-Menu, it's not a Puppy XDG menu.
-Can't change theme if you don't remove /~/.gtkrc-2.0
-Some utilities like keyboard.
-Edit the .xinitrc to avoid rox at the startup.

Over.

I loaded it into precise 5.5, exited to the prompt and did "startx
mate-session" no quotes.
It's working pretty well so far.

Thanks for your confirmation Biltoo !
Indeed you're right, I forget "startx mate-session" too...
I will work on the menu, and Gvfs for "Computer" and "Trash" support.

I'm looking forward to trying this out, for sure! I think I'll wait until the menu mess is sorted out, though Wink

Once themes are useable, where can I download new ones, and how do I install them? Particularly looking for something orange/black like GTK's DeepThought... yeah, I'm like that Razz

For the menu, not really hard, I will replace /etc/xdg/menu/mate-applications by another from the gnome sfs. Just rename "applications.menu" to "mate-applications.menu" and replace.

For themes, take a look to [url]gnome-look.org[/url], download a gtk-2 theme, extract the archive and put the folder in /usr/share/themes or /~/.themes.
Go to appearance settings and appl Smile. To change an icon theme, do the same operation, but extract the icon theme to /usr/share/icons folder.

Don't hesitate if you have questions Very Happy

Hello, Jejy Very Happy

For the menu you may want to have a look at the latest OpenboxPlus - it has a rewritten menu structure to make it as Puppy-like as possible, and recognizes all Puppy applications, not just those with specific 'Category' names. The OBP files at /usr/share/desktop-directories are set for the menu to display the icons of the current desk icon theme:

Several GTK themes from the latest collections for OpenboxPlus also work with MATE, GNOME and XFCE. The main gtk-theme-collection.pet has some themes that don't support those DE's, you'll see a giant quotation mark if this is the case. The Crunchy and Ambiance-Radiance themes do have support:

Hi vicmz ! Smile

Nice idea ! I used your XDG menu for this second build. The result is excellent ! I edited the files in the folder /usr/share/desktop-directories, to use icons theme from /usr/share/icons. It'll work with mate-settings.
Thanks you ! Very Happy

I'll download the SFS shortly, but it won't be until tonight that I can try it -- I've got a busy day ahead.

Of course - glad to be of help - just repaying in a small measure your previous generosity in making available all the lxde component pets....

I repackaged it from:
http://search.slackware.eu/cgi-bin/package.cgi/view/slackware-14.0/slackware/l/gvfs-1.12.3-i486-2.txz

Cheers

I installed this pet in my precise 5.5 remaster and then rebooted but mate wouldn't start.
I switched back to jwm and uninstalled the pet and all is good again.
I have a upup raring install (somewhere) so I'll locate that and try again.

EDIT:I tested the pet in my upup raring 387 install and it works fine there.

EDIT:I decided to install mate 1.60 in ubuntu 13.04, I like it Smile
