Chimaera alpha mate desktop audio..

Have spent the day installing the latest alpha, which I found out about from distrowatch

Mate desktop, mate media. Like Beowulf, device profile is not persisting. Worryingly, volume settings are not persisting either. This is known. What I didn't know, is that selecting 'no sounds' results in sounds. Specifically, a squelch when using backspace.

Loosing settings is bad. Imposing unrequested multimedia is assault! OMG I hope this gets fixed but omg it is beyond me to log these bug data sad

I did a mate install from the chimaera alpha iso. Volume settings persist across reboots. Audio hardware profile setting does not persist. I didn't try editing any files.

I have been using MATE on Chimaera for months, and have never had such problems. BUT, this is Chimaera updated from Beowulf, for what that's worth. But there seems to be nothing intrinsic to MATE that is broken.

Re: Chimaera alpha mate desktop audio..

I know I have been building MATE since 2016 for devuan, for every update that comes from debian on this packages:

mate-applets
mate-indicator-applets
mate-power-manager
mate-session-manager

a problem will occur



This package have first or second degree dependencies on systemd, in you case I think you need to rebuild this packages

Re: Chimaera alpha mate desktop audio..

I've just done my fifth version of debbowulf. Totally removed desktop and everything else from lmde cindy, down to under 300 packages, then installed deadbeef, then commented out the multimedia repo.
Then installed mint artwork, then deleted most of mint artwork to make room, then installed xorg and basic mate desktop with no recommends. Then installed sysvinit-core.

Next, changed repos to lmde debbie and beowulf, and upgraded. 499 to upgrade, managed to do it all without a single part of my desktop getting uninstalled. Finally installed mate-media and reinstalled pulseaudio.

Then checked audio settings. All saved correctly. All this happened on a 2GB eee pc partition. (at some point, installed and removed bleachbit).
