  • Where can I find some catalog about commercial math fonts for LaTeX?
    Maybe getting in touch with bodies publishing in the field of math (American Mathematical Society, journals) offers a trail to font designers / companies (like Linotype). Note that the name of the fonts used in a pdf equally may be displayed by some viewers like the metadata (who authored the pdf when using what kind of pdfengine) - e.g. Here for atril. - Source: Reddit / 11 days ago
  • A good day, and, a noob day
    Mate: You already know that GNOME 3 brought that controversial new interface. Well, free software is about owning your software, and people who didn't liked GNOME 3 took GNOME 2 and kept developing as a separate branch that aims to keep the spirit of GNOME 2 alive. Default interface is a top bar with some menus and a bottom bar with the taskbar, but much like Plasma you can change those panels and add/remove some... - Source: Reddit / 17 days ago
  • Need Mentorship
    MATE: Developed by a worldwide community, MATE (pronounce it as mah-te) emerged when GNOME 3 came out. It introduced the look and feel it now has, but at the cost of throwing away what it was, so part of the community went and decided to take GNOME 2 and continue developing and maintaining it, but keeping alive the spirit of what GNOME 2 used to be. It is quite lightweight and simple (much like XCFE), but with... - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago

    Fundamentally microshaft loves to fk with you...good luck...might I suggest an install of a GUI Linux instead Like "MATE" LOL - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Everyone seems to forget why GNOME and GNOME 3 and Unity happened
    GNOME 2 was perfect. I use the spiritual sucessor MATE wherever it’s possible. It’s not perfect and arguably “boring” but there is really something to it On a side note a similar project exist for KDE 3. Trinity Desktop And on a second mildly related side note: /r/linux had a thread about a modern (2009) OpenSuse spin with KDE 2 a few months ago. It was... - Source: Hacker News / 8 months ago
  • Most likely not the place to ask this question but... What's the difference between Linux and Windows?
    But as to why - well you lose a lot of the broad nice things about windows, like software working out of the box and generally broad support for all number of things, but in exchange you get the ability to customize your system to any level you want. A good example of this is the choice of desktop environment. Which is something that's set for you on windows. Do you want to use Gnome? You can use KDE if you don't!... - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • Advantages of Cinnamon, XFCE and MATE over each other.
    Mate has Mate developers. Either Mint OR Ubunutu are using it pretty much as it comes I think. The other may do a bit more, but Mate has its own developers. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • What's the good window manager for a beginner?
    If you want a full-featured solution, you're talking about a desktop environment. You have several good options there: GNOME, Plasma, and Cinnamon are very popular (if a bit more resource heavy) ones. Popular lighter desktop environments include XFCE and MATE. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago

  • Linux: An Intro For Newbies
    There are many different graphical environments and there isn't a "Linux way" of doing things. In fact, when it comes to Linux usually there's a dozen ways of doing the same thing. There are many graphical choices like Gnome, kde, mate etc. Usually a Linux distributions comes bundled with all of them. - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • Never Update Anything
    Look instead at MATE's homepage: Or their screenshots. For Ubuntu MATE, select "Traditional" in your link's step 1. You can also look at the final screenshot of Sure, MATE has evolved to give more options, and distros seem to like defaulting its look to something non-traditional, but the traditional look is still very GNOME2 and... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Lumina Desktop Environment
    These days, I am really impressed by the MATE desktop environment: It does the stuff that you need without excess weight, the look and feel is flexible enough that you can make it look like other systems if you prefer, and the small development team consistently put out new releases without any drama. Ubuntu MATE is arguably more user-friendly than the main Ubuntu, with the MATE desktop,... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Ask HN: Alternatives to Windows?
    When you say "easy to use" are you talking mostly about the UX? Because there are lot of desktops to choose from for Linux. Have you tried MATE[1] or Budgie from Solus[2]? They're both quite nice in different ways [1]: - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • noooo....11#1!11#1!
    The philosophy of the MATE desktop is similar, although these developers decided to use version 2 of the GNOME desktop as their base. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • Gnome 40
    You should give Mate a try then [1]. It's essentially Gnome 2 but actively maintained. [1] - Source: Hacker News / about 2 years ago
