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 6.3a shows a screenshot of MATE on a PC-BSD® 10.0 system with the "Applications" menu open.

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

  • Engrampa: archive manager found in Accessories → Engrampa Archive Manager.
  • Eye of MATE: image viewer found in Graphics → Eye of MATE Image Viewer.
  • Atril: PDF document viewer found in Graphics → Atril Document Viewer.
  • Caja: file manager found in System Tools → Caja. It is a fork of Nautilus.

You can find additional themes and wallpapers at[2].
