@APolihron I don’t come on this forum so you can feel … I am really deeply sorry If I have done this to you.
I come on this forum like most of other users to complain about bugs and ask for help. So this things is in the nature of forums, even if you go on other kind of forums like car forums, people come there most to ask for help regarding they’re car issue, and if you go on that forum you will think that those cars are totally … so don’t take the forum to personally, don’t try to help everyone.
I try to complain like the MATE 18.04 has really big issues, but I know that are just small code tweaks and fix, that for user perspective can have big impact, but this are normal after such big work.
I know that you and little Mate Developer Team work so hard on at lest the last release, and I come to upgrade because of so much nice feature it has been added to it.
You know I am not an IT guy, just another field engineer with a little bit of passion in his personal IT, so compare with others I have more IT equipment, at least four desktop actively used, two home server (one online and one backup), 3 actively used laptops and 3 old and a little rarely used with some specific task, 2 Rasberry Pi (one used permanently as a router firewall) and one tablet, and except the tablet with Lubuntu all are running Mate Desktop, also servers one, as sometime is more quick to connect and work on them via tightvnc. My first beginning in UNIX/Linux word was with OpenSolaris home server, moved to Open Indiana. After some day because of poor hardware support, I decided to buy a new home server,( a HP Proliant Microserver Gen8) , and decided a switch to linux, as ZFS get support on it, so I don’t remember exactly but I started with Xubuntu and after some time decided to move to Mate, and I am using Mate from 3-4 years without any big issues, I even remember the switch to 16.04 when was an overhaul of Bluetooth stack, and it starts working, so even now I listen to music by passing digital content over Bluetooth to my power amplifier.
So I just get the comfort of Mate 16.04, that was just a little bit disturbed by upgrade to 18.04, otherwise I have not signed on this forum, so don’t take my complain really personally, I just exagerate to get somehow a quick update fix. but no success everybody wants quick, now, perfect and FREE or CHEAP , and if it is not like that we yell, scream,
