Install MATE on openSUSE using a script

by 10:26 π.μ. 0 σχόλια

We've seen the first tutorial how to install MATE on openSUSE 13.2. Then the second one about install MATE using NET installation.

Although there's a pattern to install, you can install it using the following script, so it'll place the Display Manager as well. Next release, I guess it'll be as option during installation on DVD (or NET Install).

1. Perform the installation as described here from 1-12.

2. Open your terminal and download the script


3. Make the file, executable.

chmod +x

4. Run


Answer y (yes) to every question.

Here what's inside this script.

1. Install the necessary programs.

sudo zypper in gnome-main-menu mate-backgrounds mate-control-center mate-dialogs caja mate-icon-theme mate-notification-daemon mate-polkit marco mate-session-manager mate-settings-daemon mate-desktop mate-panel caja-image-converter caja-open-terminal caja-sendto caja-share dconf-editor mate-dictionary mate-disk-usage-analyzer mate-icon-theme-faenza mate-netspeed mate-screenshot mate-search-tool mate-sensors-applet mate-system-log mate-user-share mozo python-caja atril engrampa eom gucharmap mate-applets mate-calc mate-power-manager mate-media mate-screensaver mate-system-monitor mate-terminal mate-themes mate-menus atril-caja caja-engrampa marco-themes mate-common mate-icon-theme-faenza-dark mate-icon-theme-faenza-gray mate-indicator-applet patterns-openSUSE-mate_basis pluma lightdm git

2. It'll delete the /etc/sysconfigdisplaymanager. It will download from my git, my working displaymanager (lightdm as default).

git clone

Will copy the file to /etc/sysconfig

3. After that, it'll delete all downloaded files.

4. Reboot. If everything was OK, then you'll see the following screen. Change session to MATE and you're all set.
