Warning: The transaltion of 'calculate' entry is not possible. My way: create a new 'mate category' called Mate-Puppy-Business.directory. It's works fine.

Hi, can someone provide fool-proof instructions on how to install the Mate desktop onto a late-version Puppy. I *believe* that I installed the Mate desktop application, and seem to get some of the apps which come with Mate, but have not had the *desktop* come up (ie. top panel, Applications/Places/System, icons, screens), and no obvious way to select that desktop format to make it active.

There IS a puppy_mate.iso online which works, but uses Mate1.4, on Puppy5.2.xx.
Has someone progressed this project since then?

Thanks, m

CTRL+ALT+BKSP to hit command line, then...

Code:
xwin mate-session


...followed by a swift kick to the [ENTER] key Wink

Thanks, I'll keep persisting.
Can someone confirm that mate-precise-installer-0.3.pet works with puppy_tahr.iso. ?
That's where I'm at.

When I un-pack mate-precise-installer-0.3 I get a mate-precise-installer-0.3 folder.
Then puppy does not respond to shutdown process. Stays on.
Have to force shutdown by holding start button.
When I restart, there is no indication that mate has been installed. There is no obvious facility to select the mate desktop on this puppy desktop, or on next reboot.

Any help by someone who has mated puppy_tahr.iso with the mate desktop, would be appreciated.

Thanks m
