Mate now supports a global menu.
GTK2, 3 , QT4 application supported. That means all applications will have a global menu.


http://www.webupd8.org/2014/12/get-global-menu-in-mate-18-with-topmenu.html

Why aren't you using the best DE ever?
>>
The global menu works instantly (even faster than both unity and osx) and doesn't lag like KDEs global menu.

I am quite surprised and so excited about this.
>>
>>45664040
Mate and Cinnamon are most half-baked DEs I've ever used
>>
>>45664063
>literal GNOME 2 and GNOME 3 only debloated and better are half-baked
>can't even MATE properly
>>
>>45664040

elementary os is finished
ubuntu oonitie is finished
gnome shell managed to finish itself

only good alternative left is LXDE
>>
Obsolete fork of outdated Gnome 2.

Will never be rewritten for gtk3
>>
Come on guys! Dont be shy!
Give it a try!

>>45664082
GNOME 3 is heavy, but I love it
>>
>>45664107
It already has been, what are you talking about?
http://wiki.mate-desktop.org/status:gtk3
>>
Why would I use a Windows 95 clone?
>>
>>45664170
Fuck off.
>>
is global menu meant to be an advantage?

can someone explain it to me?

it seems to be like;
a. more mouse movement
b. can't access a windows' menu until it's first placed in focus
>>
>>45664127
This. The earlier versions were meh, but they really got their shit together one the latest versions.
>>
>>45664236
It's more tablety, just like everything that is happening in the Linux world.
>>
>>45664353
I stopped making excuses for the gnome dev team after 3.10
Nautilus is still horrible
Themes are still impossible to get working right
They broke terminal
The added a bunch of apps (yes 'Apps', like Documents, Maps, etc) that are pretty useless

KDE cant come soon enough. I wasn't aware Mate/Cinnamon was still being updated, I'll have to check it out if I can't wait for 5.2
>>
>>45664426
>I wasn't aware Mate/Cinnamon was still being updated
Why would the Mint team stop updating their flagship DE?
>>
>>45664407
How the fuck is a global menu more 'tablety'? Global menus have been around on the mac forever since back in the days black and white crt box apples

I'm not a fan of it either (because of the mouse movement thing) but its a better use of space than somethin like the Gnome black bar which is nearly fucking useless
>>
>>45664236
This. It also makes it a necessity to have another system bar for the purpose of paging
>>
>>45664113
ok
i'm gonna do it.
>>
>>>/'90s/
>>
If I wanted a global menu I'd run OSX, so, no.
>>
Late time I used Mate it didn't have window snapping. Is this still true?
>>
>>45666740
Nope. Just enable it under windows in the control center.

Can Mate do this?

>no
>>
>>45667654
The MATE/Compiz Fedora spin can. If only they put more effort into making it not look like shit.
>>
>>45667654
I don't mean to shit on it because it does look nice, but why would I even want that?
>>
Is there anyway to not have 2 panels? Muh vertical screen space...
>>
>>45667672
Simply remove the bottom panel and add window buttons to the top.

2007 called, but all I heard was incoherent muttering about aiglx
>>
>>45667666
No reason, it's just fluff. It's nice for alt tab with cover switch though. Present all windows and desktop grid are really sweet. I have them set to top left and right corners.

>>45667706
I think KDE only uses OpenGL now.
>>
>>45667757
Why is KDE so based but so impossible to run on 2GB RAM?
>>
>>45667808
plasma-desktop is only using 179MB on my computer with all the nice settings turned on.

Is that razorqt?

How come neither the DVD installer I made at launch nor the net USB I made now wants to let me install openSUSE? They always default to ncurses then complain that they can't find the installation medium.
