@3demaxAlright, I think I fixed the font size issue. I was able to reproduce the bug, and it seems to have been fixed for me. Just a silly garbage collection issue I should have caught.Can you confirm that it's fixed for you?Looking at this code again after half a year or so, I've come to realize something: it's godawful.
MATE desktop is one of the Linux Mint project. It’s a fork of Gnome 2, provides classic gnome style user interface for people feel uncomfortable with Gnome 3 gome-shell desktop.
Recently, Mate released the latest version 1.2.
MATE is a fork of Gnome 2.It provides an intuitive and attractive desktop to Linux users using traditional metaphors.
The name “MATE” comes from yerba maté, a species of holly native to subtropical South America.
First I want to say kudos to Fedora for including MATE in F18, along with a shout out to the MATE developers who made it possible.
I've been testing extensively and it's running great for me. Everything from MythTV to Gimp 2.8.2 is working fine. The DE feels snappy and I'm more certainly more productive. It's like an old friend has returned from banishment.
Unity is the default desktop environment in Ubuntu 12.10. Although, it has improved a lot but if you’re still looking for an alternative desktop with classic GNOME 2 style layout then you may try MATE.
MATE is also a GNOME 3 based desktop (just like unity), it’s easy to use, and the it’s stable too.
