I have used various ubuntu-mate live cd iso files to do various things to my installs and to other folks installs. The one thing that continually irks me is using the brisk menu that is default in the live cd iso for Mate 18.04.
Is there a way to get back the old familiar "traditonal" mate menu when editing the Mate desktop iso using something like Cubic? I'm having the damndest time attempting to use the chroot cli to change the default menu and could use some help.
In chroot, I've been trying this command -
dconf write /org/mate/panel/general/default-layout "'traditional'" and getting errors like this -
error: Error spawning command line “dbus-launch --autolaunch= --binary-syntax --close-stderr”: Child process exited with code 1
Usage: dconf write KEY VALUE Write a new value to a key Arguments: KEY A key path (starting, but not ending with '/') VALUE The value to write (in GVariant format)
See the following pages - https://askubuntu.com/questions/741753/how-to-use-cubic-to-create-a-custom-ubuntu-live-cd-image and - https://www.linuxuprising.com/2018/07/how-to-customize-ubuntu-or-linux-mint.html as source material.
It's just an irritation. The effing brisk menu seems to crash every time I try to raise mate tweak to set the menu to my taste and I'm tired of doing this over and over. The 16.04 iso just seems to work but I'd like the modern one to work out of the box too.
Anyone have any direct experience on this matter?
