Hi
I tested the installation of ubuntu mate 15.10.
Installation went well.
booted to the login prompt ,then logged in and created an xorg.conf
file.
Then sudo service lightdm start and then joined the graphic's login.
Here login failed with this errror : startup of the session failed.
Tried to install another desktop instead of Mate but got this error
Temporary errors when setting up ports.ubuntu.com.

It seems that the problem is a question of rights. get an error that says
can not create / sys / module / snd_hda_intel / parameters / power_save: permission denied.
Then the system freezes .
The problem: Temporary errors when setting up ports.ubuntu.com, was an error with the network

I gave up Mate 15.10 and installed Xubuntu. Then I installed christians Mesa and downgraded xorg.
All work fine but modules are not loaded. I expect it to be resolved. Xubuntu is here booted with RC8.

I could update my ubuntu MATE 15.04 to 15.10 successfully today. The new Xorg server shows all colors correct. Unfortunately Compiz doesn't work currently.

Hi All,

After a big update today I found two problems in ubuntu MATE 15.10 PowerPC today.

The first is systemd. If I start ubuntu MATE 15.10 with systemd then the gnome-settings daemon doesn't start and MATE Tweak doesn't work (see screenshot). If I use upstart-sysv then MATE Tweak and the gnome-settings-daeomon work without any problems.

Image

Additionally there is a problem with MATE Tweak itself. If I switch to Compiz then it set org.gnome.metacity theme to 'Ambiant-MATE'. Metacity can't display the window decoration with the two apostrophes in the theme name (see screenshot).

Image

I created an own script to switch to Compiz and I set the theme name without apostrophes:

Code: Select all
gsettings set org.gnome.metacity theme Ambiant-MATE
compiz --replace


This works very well.

Rgds,

Christian
