Here’s my details… currently dual-booting Ubuntu-MATE 15.10 with Mac OSX on my MacBook Air. Running for about a week or so and has been working great. Very responsive and quick boot times on the SDD. All components work “out of box”. Have not changed any driver settings from default install.

I have happily started using Ubunutu-MATE on this laptop as my daily driver, only booting into the Mac side for a few specific things I have not yet setup or found suitable replacements for. Only a few small annoyances that I’m sure there may be fixes for now or in the near future, but do not work “out of box” today on 15.10:

  1. No “natural scrolling” option for the trackpad. I know that this drives some people crazy, but I’ve been using Macs with trackpads for so long now that it really screws with my muscle memory switching back and forth

  2. I’ve been experiencing issues with Compiz window manager crashing whenever I make a change to the desktop settings (exact same as discussed here). And its not that I’m totally against Marco, its just that the “shearing” when scrolling through web pages when using Marco drives me batty!

  3. The brightness controls for both the display and the backlit keyboard work, but the levels are reset whenever I attach/detach the charging cable… and not just switched back and forth between two different states (one on battery, one while plugged in), but they reset and stay that way until manually adjust again. Once again, more of a minor annoyance than anything.

All in all, I think Ubuntu-MATE is an awesome OS. I also have it installed and working well on a few other systems that I will add to this list as well soon. Many thanks to Wimpy and the rest of the gang for all their awesome work :smiley:

UPDATE::: Installed Ubuntu-MATE 16.04 beta2. I’m happy to report that the “natural scrolling” option in the mouse/touchpad preferences is working great! And so far, the issue with Compiz appear to have subsided, at least for now. And brightness settings appear somewhat more preserved when plugging/unplugged power cable.

Here is updated system info:

MATE performance on a netbook
Changing from other Ubuntu based distros
#32

I have just installed Ubuntu MATE 16.04 32 bit on this identical machine today for a friend. Originally it a sampler Windows 7 version on it and it was unusable. A few months ago I put Ubuntu MATE 15.10 on it and he found it was very usable. It is still very usable with the latest version of Ubuntu MATE.

My friend’s machine was labelled as a Packard Bell, but it is identical in all other respects. Same processor, memory, graphics resolution. I as looking for a new battery today and I wondered why Acer kept coming up. Now I know why!

Hi all,

just new to Mate, but allready loving this community. My PC has a SSD alternate frame to allow easy switching between Ubuntu Mate and Win 7.

Misc. notes:

  • I did not test WLAN thoroughly, just plugged in the adapter and it properly listed the nearby networks, but I did not connect to any as I am using wired ethernet only
  • scanner and printer work with proprietary manufacturer drivers only
  • for the K70 it is recommended to clear the X calculator keyboard shortcut as one of the custom buttons triggers it besides its intended effect
  • the 750 Ti worked out of the box with the open source drivers, but DXX-Rebirth failed to start due to a missing GLX visual … the proprietary drivers work fine, except for the need to run nvidia-settings --assign CurrentMetaMode="DVI-D-0: 1920x1200 { ForceCompositionPipeline = On }" on login to avoid tearing if you don’t use a hardware compositor (with Compton it is not needed)

Edit: replaced the USB drive with a Samsung 850 Pro (512 GB) as the main Linux drive.

Other Device:
POD TonePort/GearBox USB sound card (formerly used for recording during my windows time but now solely used as external sound card)

The partition is in LVM which I had when installed previous Ubuntu Unity.

What I use the computer for?
Basically almost everything since this is my only machine…from watching videos, browsing internet, to doing graphic stuffs using Inkscape, Gimp and Scribus… I don’t play games though and don’t have printer and scanner

Background:
I bought this computer in around 2005-2006 and even so, the processor was not the higher end one at that time… LOL this is mainly because I had a tight budget and for some reason I did not brave enough to use AMD…along the way I have changed the motherboard and upgraded the RAM to 2GB.

I recently switched to MATE from Unity. I’m new to linux and my first install was ubuntu 12.04 (using wubi.exe installed on windows XP). When microsoft stopped XP support in 2014, I single installed 14.04 Unity to just give it a try although my machine might not powerful enough and it wasn’t run that smoothly under 12.04. To my surprise it runs much faster than when it was dual installed with windows…and without realizing it I have been using unity up to 15.10.

Then when the new LTS comes out, I’m thinking of to try out different DE to see if i can optimize my old hardware more. And here I am using MATE at the moment…I was expecting some drastic improvements on my hardware but I guess unless I use stuff like LXDE, the differences are not too obvious for my kind of hardware.

Anyway, I think I would stick with MATE for now because I like this forum… I mean it’s easier for noob linux user like me to look for tips and workaround for potential future problems. That’s one of the reasons why I chose MATE in the first place…
