(Sorry for the inconvenience)

Mate[1] is a fork of the popular, but now unmaintained, GNOME2 desktop environment. MATE is under active development to add support for new technologies while preserving the traditional GNOME desktop experience and its many built-in utilities. Figure 6.1a shows a screenshot of Mate on a PC-BSD® 10.0 system with the "Applications" menu open.

Figure 6.3a: Mate Desktop on a PC-BSD® System

Each category in the "Applications" menu contains many applications and the "Settings" and "System" categories contain many utilities for configuring your system. If you are new to GNOME2, take some time to discover which applications best suit your needs. Some of the applications which are provided by GNOME include:

  • Epiphany[3]: web browser found in Internet → Epiphany Web Browser.
  • Brasero[4]: CD/DVD burning software found in Multimedia → Brasero Disk Burner.
  • Totem[5]: movie player found in Multimedia → Movie Player.
  • Evolution[6]: email client with address book and calendar. Found in Office → Evolution Mail and Calendar.
  • Nautilus[7]: file manager found in Utilities → File Browser.
NOTE: Some games, such as Lights Off, Quadrapassel, and Swell Foop, require 3D acceleration. If your video driver does not support this, you will not be able to launch those games.

You may or may not have installed all of GNOME's components during installation. You can view the installed components and check (to add) or uncheck (to delete) various components using Control Panel → Package Manager → Desktops → GNOME.

You can find additional themes and wallpapers at gnome-look.org[8].
