I am running Fedora 16 and keep wanting to do something about the awkward Desktop. I tried several shell extensions but wasn't satisfied with the results, then I heard about MATE, is there a tutorial on how to install it?
The MATE-desktop wiki reports an update on availability of MATE for Fedora:
Works for me. About 67 packages get installed, and then at the login screen, I have both GNOME and MATE as available options.
