Install MATE Desktop

For while MATE Desktop packages are in Edge, then we'll need to add its repository to our list. To do so, issue the following command:

echo >> /etc/apk/repositories apk update

The next commands are used to install all avaliable video drivers and setup Xorg server:

{{Cmd|videodrivers=$(apk search --quiet --exact xf86-video* | grep -v -- '-doc$')
setup-xorg-base $videodrivers}}

Now let us install a bunch of needed packages what includes all MATE Desktop packages avaliable in our Edge repository:

grep -v '\-dev'

In the next step we add some services to start up with the operating system:

rc-update add lxdm rc-update add dbus rc-update add udev

adduser -h /home/monitor -g "Monitor User" monitor

rc-service dbus start

  1. replacing the hardcoded 'system_bus_socket' path

dbus_sock_path=$(find / -name system_bus_socket) dbus_sock_path=$(echo $dbus_sock_path | sed 's/\//\\&/g') sed -i 's/\/var\/run\/dbus\/system_bus_socket/'$dbus_sock_path'/' /etc/dbus-1/system.conf

ttfs=$(apk search -q ttf- | grep -v '\-doc') apk add $ttfs

ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ apk fix ln -s /usr/etc/xdg/menus/ /etc/xdg/menus

  1. lbu ci

rc-service udev start rc-service lxdm start
