If there's anyone out there who can spare the bytes, I think we need a faster mirror. Honestly, I would host one if I could.

It's pretty simple: the package that owns the binary that breaks on the GnuTLS dependency wink.

I emailed Perberos and offered to host a mirror for him.
In the meantime, if anyone has pre-built Arch packages let me know.  I could throw them up on my server quickly.

From the looks of it, it conflicts with packages from GNOME 3, but if you uninstall GNOME 3, it should run fine.  It's essentially a rebranded GNOME 2 at this point.

Just keep retrying the download, it'll work after a few tries.

Nevermind any of what I just said. I didn't check gitweb.

(it was about a menu editor)

Re: Mate Desktop Environment - GNOME2 fork

Perberos uploaded the Mate DE packages for i686 and x86_64 to my server. 
For anyone who has been having trouble downloading Mate, you can try getting it from my mirror:

No problem smile
I'm also trying to mirror the source files, but I haven't been able to download all of them yet.

BTW - I installed the x86_64 packages last night and tried to run Mate DE.  It started up, but an endless stream of file manager windows opens up.  The only thing I can do is immediately log out because I can't get the windows to stop spawning.  My guess is that it has something to do with the Gnome2 and Gnome3 settings I still have laying around, but if anyone knows how to fix this please let me know.

Re: Mate Desktop Environment - GNOME2 fork

I have begun a Wiki article on MATE. I understand it may be a little early for this, but I have a lot of faith in this project and let's face it; the Redmine site is a little too slow for reference and documentation.

Re: Mate Desktop Environment - GNOME2 fork

No problem. I am too lazy to rewrite it on github wiki.

quick fix, run as root:

ln -s /usr/lib/libgnutls.so /usr/lib/libgnutls.so.26

What does 'pacman -Sff' do? I can't seem to find any reference to double 'f' switch apart from https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 60#p950860

Re: Mate Desktop Environment - GNOME2 fork

Hi
Can I ask why is it called Mate? Why not users-desktop-environment or simple-desktop-environment etc.....?
Mate sounds like something you can drink.


After posting I googled Mate and it's indeed something you can drink see wiki.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mate_%28beverage%29

Sorry my English is bad.

-Sff ignores file conflict warnings. I'm not sure if it overwrites the offending files or just leaves them, though.

Can you point me to a man page or anything that mentions -'ff' switch?

It creates pacnew files for the files in the backup array - if the 'files' metadata is present.

You may need to force the upgrade.
