We have had Fedora 20 installed on my wife's laptop, and want to use Mate as the default desktop displayed. The machine is set up to require no user password, but at reset there is no gear wheel to choose the desktop. The current desktop (Gnome 3?) does not seem to have access to systems settings that allow the change. Please, how do we go about this.
I have happily set up and use Mate on two other machines, desktop (tower) and laptop, but, of course, have forgotten the procedure I used, I don't recall it being difficult.
I have done:
# yum groupinstall Mate-desktop
and (I might have this wrong from memory, and have mislaid the reference, but the response is correct)
# yum install @mate-desktop gives
nothing to do.
Please, no answers suggesting other desktops, we have made the choice.
