The official unofficial repository for MATE for EL8.


There have been reports of users being unable to login to MATE using GDM. This issue does not exist when using lightdm. Lightdm can be installed with the following commands:

sudo dnf copr enable stenstorp/lightdm sudo dnf install slick-greeter-mate lightdm-settings sudo systemctl disable gdm sudo systemctl enable lightdm

Lightdm will be used on the next boot.

Installation Instructions

The EPEL repository will also need to be enabled.
