MakuluLinux Mate Edition 6.1 Released !

Posted by raymerjacque on April 20, 2014 at 5:35 PM

The New Mate Edition has been a huge hit, and with good reason, its a VERY likable desktop environment. It is Rock solid, Very powerful, Simple to use, and kinda almost brings back that old familiar feeling you used to have when you were still using good old gnome 2 ...


Version 1.8 of Mate is barely out of its diapers, i mean seriously, its not even 2 months old and its running so smooth and stable that you would swear its been live for years ... ( well, almost, we did have that one missing panel bug, but then again nothing is perfect and 1 bug in 2 months is unheard of ... )  The Mate Desktop stays true to its name and remains rock solid all round well designed Desktop Environment.


Designed and built in the Traditional Makulu style makes this Edition extra special, It just makes you feel all weak in the knees and warm in the belly ... :)


This particular build ( 6.1 ) will be the last build for the 6 series, It just touches up a few spots that needed some shinning ... Hope you guys enjoy it ...Changes in 6.1 :


 

  • Fixed some issues with menu icons.
  • Post install script now gives far less user prompts, should be less annoying...
  • Fixed some annoying issues throughout the distro.
  • Fixed a nasty bug with missing mate panel after updates.

 

 

Simple fact is this Build was so awesome the first time around that there was not that much to fix, however I have fixed the little that was reported.

Brilliant news, Jacque.
Is it possible to update Makulu Mate 6.0 to this release, or does it have to be a clean install ?

You can update, but the updates will just apply the fixes, not the script changes, icons and other stuff i tweaked throughout the build.

The Network Manager Applet fix was not included in the new iso.

The post by RipresaTecn in the thread below worked on my install.
