I tried it again… It works now, mate-tweak solved this.
How I solved:
pacman -Syy mate
erro: mate-polkit: signature from "Antonio Rojas <[email protected]>" is invalid
:: Arquivo /var/cache/pacman/pkg/mate-polkit-1.18.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz está corrompido (pacote inválido ou corrompido (assinatura PGP)).
Error, but then I ‘pacman -Syy mate’ again and it installed, ended session, still no panel.
Tried adding the extra, ‘pacman -Syy mate mate-extra’, installed, ended session, still no panel.
I’ve found some info about empty panel. It was my first issue, but now the panel doesn’t even show, it’s hidden but it’s there as ‘ps_mem’ shows:
7.4 MiB + 971.0 KiB = 8.4 MiB mate-panel
Some info from http://wiki.mate-desktop.org/archlinux_custom_repo:
MATE 1.6 migrated from gconf to gsettings. If you are updating from an MATE 1.4 you might end up with an empty panel. To resolve the issue reset the panel configuration to its defaults using mate-panel –reset and then use mate-conf-import to restore most of your old settings.
‘mate-panel –-reset’ doesn’t solve the issue, still no panel.
bash: mate-conf-import: comando não encontrado
(translating: command not found)
So this didn’t work either.
An old thead about this you suggested installing
Still no panel, but this time ‘mate-panel –-reset’ worked.
mate-tweak fixed something, but it’s not perfect yet, check top panel:
Some bug with the menu, it’s light grey. Changing the theme solve this issue.
Desktop: MATE 1.18.0 (Gtk 3.22.26)
WM: Metacity (Marco)
WM Theme: Menta
Theme: Menta [GTK2/3]
Icons: Menta [GTK2/3]
I think the whole thing has something to do with panel layouts and theme, but it is just a guess.
Everything seems to work now.
For future reference, if you have an empty panel or no panel at all:
- try resetting the panel with mate-panel –-reset if this doesn’t work…
- …install mate-tweak (sudo pacman -S mate-tweak)
- kill the process with pkill mate-panel
- reset the panel with mate-panel –-reset
- change the theme
