MATE for Xenial

PPA description

MATE Desktop 1.16 for Xenial Xerus.

## Installing from another Ubuntu 16.04 flavour

If you've already installed another Ubuntu flavour, such as Xubuntu or Lubuntu, then you can install the core Ubuntu MATE system alongside as follows:

Open a terminal using CRTL + ALT + t

    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-mate-dev/xenial-mate
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install ubuntu-mate-core

Now restart your computer and and choose "MATE" from the available sessions in the LightDM login screen.

## Upgrading from Ubuntu MATE 16.04

To upgrade Ubuntu MATE 16.04 to MATE Desktop 1.16 do the following:

Open a terminal using CRTL + ALT + t

    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-mate-dev/xenial-mate
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt full-upgrade

Now restart your computer and you're running MATE Desktop 1.16.

## Notes

Upgrading to MATE Desktop 1.16 will remove the mate-netspeed packages, but don't be alarmed, the NetSpeed applet is now included in the mate-applets package. You won't loose any functionality.

If you see the following prompt during the upgrade, then press Enter to accept [default=N]:

Configuration file '/etc/xdg/autostart/mate-volume-control-applet.desktop'
 ==> Deleted (by you or by a script) since installation.
 ==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
   What would you like to do about it ? Your options are:
    Y or I : install the package maintainer's version
    N or O : keep your currently-installed version
      D : show the differences between the versions
      Z : start a shell to examine the situation
 The default action is to keep your current version.
*** mate-volume-control-applet.desktop (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ?

The version of MATE 1.16 in this PPA is (mostly) built against GTK2+ to ensure compatibility with Ubuntu MATE 16.04 and all 3rd party MATE applets, plugins and extensions.
