• Empty top panel after installing of antergos-mate-meta group


    I also got this old error with the Mate panel. I followed all the suggestions above, but none of them helped. The problem persisted, the top panel was empty. Later I managed to hide it somehow, so I could no longer make it visible. For the time being, I’ve removed the entire mate group along with the package dependencies. It has already reached a half success.
    However, I look forward to further ideas on how to resolve this issue, in case I try to install the Mate desktop next time.

  • i will do a MATE install in VM to see what could be wrong with…

  • @joekamprad Nowadays, I’m testing in a sharp environment, not on a virtual machine. :)

  • The problem was resolved because it turned out that I accidentally installed the mate and mate-extra packages. After installing the antergos-mate-meta package, I still needed the mate-tweak, and then I managed to put the top panel back in place.

    mate-tweak

    that’ s good to hear… i can see also some Mate packages are a bit outdated at Antergos Repo…
    I will have a look into it…

  • @joekamprad Why is it that there are parallelly two different package groups in the Antergos repository for a particular desktop environment?

    mate and mate-extra are package groups from Archlinux Repository, Antergos provides Antergos style meta package antergos-mate-meta

  • @joekamprad I knew that. So are there such big differences between the two repository for the fine-tuning of the packages?
