Re: MATE 1.21 on devuan beowulf

some issues so far with MATE 1.21 ...
---
mate-control-center doesn't start :

~ mate-control-center 
mate-control-center: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libmate-slab.so.0: undefined symbol: matemenu_tree_new

---
mate-screensaver, similar error :

mate-screensaver-preferences: symbol lookup error: mate-screensaver-preferences: undefined symbol: matemenu_tree_new

---
mate-power-manager also suffers from the same error as the devuan packages. systray icon broken (triangle with exclamation mark) and no power events recognised. suspend only works from menu, laptop lid closing doesn't trigger suspend as it should.
pinning and downgrading mate-power-manager & mate-power-manager-common to version 1.20.0-1+hezeh1 from hezeh.org/ascii and everything there works again.
---
clock applet was missing after 1st reboot, but came back after a 2nd one. (?)
---
mate-notification-daemon only works with "standard theme". all other themes end in error :

Error while displaying notification:
GDBus.Error.org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message recient disconnected from message bus without replying

also dmesg error :

mate-notificati[4273]: segfault at ee ip 00007fd6163e0b4f sp 00007ffc261d0a10 error 4 in libgdk-3.so.0.2402.0[7fd6163a9000+78000]

thanks,

Hi Anto,

Are you familiar with Willy Raharjo, he packages and maintains Mate for Slackware?  It could be beneficial since Devuan and Slackware both have an interest in not having systemd.  Willy is quite the wizard with packaging, scripting, hacking etc...  smile

Re: MATE 1.21 on devuan beowulf

another bug with mate-screensaver. before upgrade it was set to blank screen after 1 hour of idleness. now that it's not working, i guess it's gone back to defaults (10mins). problem is that no button can bring the screen back after blanking...
only solution i found is to switch to tty1 or some other console and then back to X (ctrl+alt+f7) and everythings looks ok again. irritating when eg. watching videos >10mins....

blindly pressing buttons while screen is blank, and they seem to respond to apps (can pause video, switch windows, etc) ,but blank screen remains, till i do the above.

Re: MATE 1.21 on devuan beowulf

antofox thanks for the notice.

moved back to previous "stable" MATE setup for devuan beowulf:
mate packages from official devuan beowulf/testing, except for mate-power-manager[-common] that are pinned to 1.20.0-1+hezeh1 from hezeh.org/ascii.
