im new to linux and ubuntu, so i apologize in advance, perhaps i missed something
i have just ran a brand new install of ubuntu mate 16.0 32bit ,during install process i chose to format and delete all partitions, and have a clean installation of ubuntu mate (had win7 and ubuntu 16.10 prior)
the machine is an old lenovo thinkpad sl510 ,if it helps.
ran the Software Updater - and installed everything ,restarted. ran it again and all is updated.
i have tried double clicking or right click-start on both the ‘Welcome’ and ‘software boutique’ apps/programs ,neither of them have any response. they don’t open at all
tried to upgrade ‘welcome’ , through these commands :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mate-dev/welcome
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-mate-welcome
it had no affect,welcome still does not work
ive read through some of the other topics ,and noticed something - my ‘about mate’ is running mate desktop environment 1.16.0 . whereas some of the screen-shots ive seen in the forum have 1.16.1
could that be a problem? reason ?
as ive run all the updates ,im not sure what more to do
thanks for any help in advance
