Install MATE Desktop

# apk add mate-desktop-environment dbus dbus-x11 lxdm adwaita-icon-theme faenza-icon-theme # gvfs_pkgs=$(apk search gvfs -q | grep -v '\-dev' | grep -v '\-lang' | grep -v '\-doc') # apk add $gvfs_pkgs

If you are running your Alpine from RAM, save the changes:

# lbu ci

Try, starting dbus and lxdm. This will start the display manager and should allow you to login.

# rc-service dbus start

# rc-service lxdm start

If it worked, enable the services to start on reboot

# rc-update add dbus

# rc-update add lxdm


True type fonts

Add all available True Type Fonts:

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

Disabling standby and screensaver

Check the current configuration using xset:

$ sudo apk add xset $ xset q
