MATE is a fork of GNOME 2.

It provides an intuitive and attractive desktop to users using traditional metaphors.

Where does the name come from?

The name “MATE” comes from yerba mate, a species of holly native to subtropical South America. Its leaves contain caffeine and are used to make infusions and a beverage called mate.

This metaport installs only MATE base lite, a lean desktop with file manager without any of extra applications. If you want to have the most common user MATE applications, please install the x11/mate metaport.
