Notice: cleaning GNOME related articles

Hello MATE community,

Some preparation is ongoing to clean up the GNOME related articles in our WiKi, specifically these two:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Gnome
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Gnome_Tips

Part of this cleaning effort will be to remove all outdated (GNOME 2.xx related) information in order to keep both these articles current and relevant. It has been pointed out to me that some of this information may be of value to the MATE community.

I'm hereby asking if anybody here might be willing to look over both articles and see if anything is of value to the MATE articles, I wouldn't want to drop information that might help you out or be useful.--stefanwilkens 13:10, 20 January 2012 (EST)

Starting MATE

Needs more information here from others, I only use gdm-old so I have no idea how mate-display-manager or plain old gdm behaves. -- Tea 15:00, 24 August 2011


MATE conflicts

What are these statements saying:

You are very likely to get file conflicts when installing. Simply rename the offending files or install with the --force flag. You will also require dbus.

Note: Currently, many MATE packages do not provide, conflict with or replace any GNOME packages.

The first line says you get conflicts. The second line (the Note) says many MATE packages do NOT conflict. Which is it? -- -- alexjj 16:00, 27 March 2013
