How do I install MATE desktop icons?
I have installed standard MATE from repositories on an Ubuntu 16.04 LTS system, this way:
sudo apt install mate-desktop
at this point, the option to select MATE at the cog in the greeter did not appear, so I had to run
sudo apt install mate-session-manager
after which MATE did appear at the cog in the greeter. I have installed
mate-utils because I could not make screenshots without it
sudo apt install mate-utils
Still, for many apps the icons are missing:
How do I install the missing icons?
MATE version 1.12.1-1
I installed mate desktop and something went wrong. I uninstalled it then and it also removed unity & gnome. now i can’t log in normal mode or recovery…my keyboard doesnt work (despite working fine in BIOS & GRUB ). I cant use Ctrl Alt F1 etc to drop to TTY shell.
If I drop to command prompt in recovery mode I cant re-install ubuntu-desktop because my wifi doesnt work (USB wifi). can’t find device via lsusb or lshw
Is there anyway i can fix this from my other ubuntu OS install? Or LIVE USB ?
I’m at a loss here, i have nougat on my mate mate 8 but i completely forgot that you had to root nougat in a particular way. Anyway, i don’t have access to erecovery, power+volUPvolDown doesn’t work and i can’t get access to fastboot. The only thing i do get is power to the screen and my ‘your phone is unlocked and can’t be trusted blah blah’ message.
I need to flash a recovery.img, system.img and any other relevant img. How can i do this with the phone in this state?
I have Ubuntu Server 18.04.2 LTS installed, with the Mate Desktop (not Ubuntu: Mate Edition, keep in mind)

I was trying out different desktop environments on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and ran
sudo apt install ubuntu-mate-desktop. It worked, but when I restarted my computer Ubuntu MATE took over start up and the login screen. After uninstalling
ubuntu-mate-desktop nothing changed, so I ran
sudo apt purge --auto-remove mate* and
sudo apt purge --auto-remove *mate*. Now there is no loading screen when shutting down or starting up, and the login still has the layout from Ubuntu MATE.
How can I revert the start up and login back to Ubuntu default?
I am using Ubuntu MATE 16.04.6 on Asus Vivobook M580VD
Recently battery icon changed and become red and empty inside(look at the image)
This happened after I restarted notebook. I didn’t restarted it for several months and I think I could have done something to cause this and restarting just applied changes that I accidentally made. But I don’t know what could caused this.
When I point cursor to it, it says “Laptop battery waiting to charge (100.0%)”
If I disconnect/connect charger it will show normal battery icon for 2 minutes and then will turn red as in image. Also it shows normal icon while battery is charging
I tried to uninstall/install mate-power-manager, but it didn’t helped.
Also in order to make sure that it is not hardware issue I tried to boot from live USB. On Live USB with Ubuntu MATE 18.04 it shows normal battery icon.
I would like to ask for your help in order to understand why is it showing red icon and how to change it back.
I wanted to use emacs and several other terminal apps on my Mate 20 X with a Bluetooth keyboard. A common key sequence needed is Ctrl-Space, but it seems that EMUI is intercepting Ctrl-Space for the purpose of cycling through keyboard layouts. How can I disable that “feature”?
We’re having trouble with the lock screen being enabled on a Ubuntu 16.04 system. Below is the script that gets ran to disable the settings, and I was wondering if two of them are competing, for example, having compositing-manager set to false overrides the mate.screensaver lock-enabled? It’s VERY finicky, in that it’s hard to reproduce but every now and again the lock screen gets triggered when the system goes into screensaver.
gsettings set org.mate.screensaver lock-enabled 'false' gsettings set org.mate.panel toplevel-id-list "['top']" gsettings set org.mate.panel object-id-list "['clock']" ##Hide Shadows gsettings set org.mate.Marco.general compositing-manager 'false' ##Control mouse focus gsettings set org.mate.Marco.general focus-mode 'mouse'
I have a clean install of Ubuntu MATE 18.04 that I wish to install TensorFlow on with GPU support. My GPU is a Titan X.
I am following the instructions from the GPU support guide but I am unable to install the NVIDIA driver due to broken packages. Here is the command and its output:
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends nvidia-driver-410
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: nvidia-driver-410 : Depends: xserver-xorg-video-nvidia-410 (= 410.104-0ubuntu1) but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
I tried resolving this by using
aptitude in place of
apt-get and accepting the proposed solution. However, upon reboot the system freezes at login. Since it was a clean install, I simply reinstalled the OS, and now I am back to this original problem.
How do I resolve the broken packages so I can install the driver for my GPU?
