Buster and MATE desktop

Postby bengtfrost » 2019-07-13 19:38

New Debian 10 Buster MATE with Calamares installer (Live CD) is amazing. Basic functionality already exists, only certain adjustments are needed. Fantastic implementation of MATE desktop on Debian 10 by Martin Wimpress!

My adjustments:
Code: Select all
# Remove
sudo apt-get purge xterm xiterm+thai mlterm
# Next
sudo apt-get purge mlterm-tiny
sudo apt purge fcitx* goldendict kasumi
sudo apt-get autoclean && sudo apt-get autoremove

# mozo - menu editor for MATE
sudo apt-get install mozo mate-menu mate-tweak # Remove default menu and add Mate Advanced menu to panel instead
# Perhaps clean up in menu (and fix icons)

sudo apt-get install lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings
sudo vim /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/01_my.conf
# Add in this new file:
[SeatDefaults]
greeter-hide-users=false

# MATE Terminal background: grey on black

sudo apt-get install arc-theme # Arc with Papirus theme, Dark theme and icons with lightdm
sudo apt-get install gnome-icon-theme papirus-icon-theme
sudo apt-get install thunderbird thunderbird-l10n-sv-se
sudo apt-get install vim mc enigmail liferea gdebi-core
sudo apt-get install qt5ct qt5-style-plugins keepassxc
sudo apt-get install neofetch inxi blueman transmission-gtk
sudo apt-get install mpv quodlibet handbrake

# HP Printer (otherwise install: task-print-server)
sudo apt-get install hplip system-config-printer simple-scan

About me -> Picture here

# Check if local time (see file: Fixing incorrect clock time...) - default
sudo timedatectl set-local-rtc 1
sudo timedatectl status

# Reboot

Isn't all that bright since the Brisk menu is just a few mouse clicks away out of the box when installing with the official installer without installing anything extra.
So something was needlesly done to the installer you used for there to be a need to do this

And MATE Tweak was installed by default on my machine from the official installer.

Sounds like something I wouldn't want to use.

Installed Debian 10 MATE unofficial non-free flavor. Works great, as expected.

Well something is fuxored with it since you had to install things that were installed on my machine by default with the official installer.
