malaverdiereHi *. I wanted to install ubuntu mate 16.04.1 on an older laptop - but dedoimedo's review of Ubuntu gave me pause... In your experience, are the bugs he mentioned fixed by now?00:32
ouroumovHi malaverdiere00:41
ouroumovDo you have a link to the review please?00:41
malaverdierehi ouroumov00:41
malaverdierehttp://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/ubuntu-xerus.html00:43
ouroumovThanks00:43
ouroumovAre you using realtek cards?00:46
malaverdierenope00:47
ouroumovThe samba stuff hasn't been fixed. I'm not sure auth required is a bug or a feature.00:48
malaverdiereI'm more concerned about the MTP support and overall stability00:48
ouroumovMTP?00:48
malaverdierefor connecting my android phone00:48
ouroumovMTP is not mentioned on this review I think (CTRL+Fed)00:49
malaverdiereno, but he mentions the phone support00:49
ouroumovThen again, he's rocking nautilus + rhythmbox, you can try caja + vlc.00:51
ouroumovAnyway00:51
ouroumovThere's problems with xenial that's for sure.00:51
malaverdierehow's the out-of-the-box experience with mate?00:51
jojom8you got that right XD00:51
ouroumovThe network thing is very serious imo.00:51
ouroumovEspecially if you're on a wifi-only system00:52
jojom8i have problems with it, sometimes00:52
malaverdiere:(00:52
jojom8But it really only depends on your system00:52
ouroumovThen there's the freaking gvfs-smb bug00:52
ouroumovWhich mostly hit you if you're on a wifi hotspot, afaik00:53
jojom8I'm running m8 on a bananna pi & it's working pretty much flawlessly00:53
ouroumovmalaverdiere, you're using the live session of Ubuntu MATE now?00:54
malaverdierenope - that system is on Linux Mint XFCE.00:54
malaverdiereSince Mint is getting nearly indentical to Ubuntu, I figured I might as well go for the original00:55
ouroumovwell you should try it if you want an idea of <what it feels like00:55
malaverdierethe rough spots rarely show then :)00:55
jojom8I'm using MATE right now00:56
ouroumovmalaverdiere, Mint18 is based on Xenial. So much of the bugs will hit you as well.00:56
malaverdiereThat system is on mint1700:56
malaverdierethat xfce setup just doesn't handle the 'hand-touching-the-trackpad' issue well00:57
ouroumovHm00:58
ouroumovWell maybe you can dual boot Mint+UM for a while?00:58
malaverdierenot a bad idea00:58
malaverdierethanks for the tips. g'night (or g'day)01:00
ouroumovnight ^^01:00

bmarsolaisFirst time here so thanks for the help.  I'm using as RPi3 connected to a 4K monitor.  Instead of configuring itself to 192x1080 which the monitor can do, it goes to 1846x945 (or something close to that.  Don't remember exaactly.)  Why does it do that and how can I force 1920x1080p?17:21
bmarsolais"It" means the RPi3 is configuring itself to the wrong screen size.17:22
bmarsolaisI deteremined the screen RPi3 configuration from System > Hardware > Displays.17:23
bmarsolaisI'm running Mate 16.0417:24
bmarsolaisUpdated the system yesterday.17:25

pierreplease what other video player could i instal under raspberry pi 3 cause vlc take much ressources17:36
pierresound but images saccaded17:36
rahtgazinstall mpv and smplayer as the front end if you need one. But mpv alone should suffice for best resource optimization17:37
rahtgazbesides its better than vlc these days17:37
pierreok i try to install smplayer17:39
pierrethanks17:39
pierrehope it will be better17:40
rahtgazit will. However it won't install mpv for you, I think. It will instead bundle with another player called mplayer. If that is the case, don't forget to install mpv and then set smplayer to use that in the preferences17:41
rahtgazalso, pierre, smplayer is positively ugly when you first launch it. Don be put off. It's just its default skin from a drunken developer, or a joke. You can change the skin in the preferences17:42
bmarsolaisI'm using as RPi3 connected to a Dell P2415Q 4K monitor.  Instead of the RPi3 configuring itself to 1920x1080 which the monitor is spec'ed to do, it goes to 1846x945 (or something close to that.  Don't remember exactly.) Why does the RPi3 do that and how can I force 1920x1080p?  I updated the system yesterday.  Using Mate 16.04.  RPi3 final video configuration determined using System > Hardware > Displays.18:15

bennabiyI could make it if I knew where all the files were supposed to go.21:23
YankDownUnderbennabiy: You might want to dig into the developer's wiki - if you're game enough to have things broken...KDE/Plasma has a "backports" PPA for "cutting edge" stuff...I'm sure, that buried somewhere in the wiki, is the same for "Mate"...21:25

bennabiyYankDownUnder: thank you, that is true21:27
