a favor is asked on the so-called "babystep" of the Mate configuration in Freebsd.

I understand that here is the place for Mate install for Freebsd. But I should admit that I am a newer and I can't make sense of the "baby step" of editing the " SRCDIR=" in the matemerge.sh.

Could anyone help me by letting me know what to input of the SRCDIR section? Is there a list to choose from?


First of all, clone mate-ports git repository into some directory. Then, set SRCDIR variable (path to cloned mate-ports directory) and run sh matemerge.sh.

Note from the manual (github README):

You will need to install the devel/git as matemerge.sh depends on it to fetch mate-ports from GitHub.
