There is a bug in gvfs in Ubuntu 16.04 that affects Caja, Nautilus and Nemo. Please take 5 minutes to test the fix so it can be verified for release.

See the post below for details.

Is it possible to install kiwix (an offline wikipedia reader) on ubuntu MATE?

So 17.10 Alpha 2 is "Dsitro of the year"! We've got more good stuff in the pipeline to land before the final release in October.

Ok this might be me but I tried installing Mate 17.10, four times today. Every time it boots fine and I go thru the install process once installed I am missing a lot of apps that are on the live session. I had to manually install FireFox to get to this page. I used Etcher to create USB. Not sure how to fix this issue any help or tips are appreciated.

Can Pluma text editor show me how many occurrences of a search term it has found?

Does anyone out there know a way to create a live ISO image of my current Mate installation, so that I could show to potential users then be able to install it on their machine? Thanks for any suggestions.

I loaded up 17.10 alpha of Ubuntu Mate yesterday and was awed by how slick it is. It all works flawlessly. Graphics are smooth, GTK 3 themes work great, browsing the internet was quick. I even tried to break the Mate tweak interface changer by going through the list 2 to 3 times selecting each one of the themes... It all just worked. Great job Team. I will definitely be upgrading to 18.04.
