Ubuntu MATE 20.04 LTS Features

Ubuntu MATE 20.04 comes automatically shipped with MATE Desktop 1.24

Firmware updater

  • Upgrade, Downgrade, & Reinstall firmware on devices supported by Linux Vendor Firmware Service (LVFS).
  • Unlock locked fwupd devices.
  • Verify firmware on supported devices.
  • Display all releases for a fwupd device.

The key-bindings for window tiling have only worked on full keyboards :keyboard: with a 10-key pad. Few laptops :computer: have a 10-key pad and not all keyboards have a 10-key either. There are some well known key-bindings from other platforms that were not recognized in Ubuntu MATE. So, we’ve had a think :think: and have come up with this:

  • Maximise Window: Super + Up
  • Restore Window: Super + Down
  • Title Window right: Super + Right
  • Title Window left: Super + Left
  • Center Window: Alt + Super + c
  • Title Window to upper right corner: Alt + Super + Right
  • Title Window to upper left corner: Alt + Super + Left
  • Title Window to lower right corner: Shift + Alt + Super + Right
  • Title Window to lower left Corner: Shift + Alt + Super + Left
  • Shade Window: Control + Alt + s

Brisk Menu

  • Brisk Menu is under the Solus GitHub organisation, but it’s been a couple of years since it had a new release. The Solus Project gave me administrative access :trident: to the Brisk Menu repo and I’ve made a new release. Thanks to the efforts of a couple of Ubuntu MATE contributors, several bug :bug: fixes have landed too, which includes resolving frequent crashers :bomb: in Brisk Menu, preventing a scrollbar always appearing in the category column of the menu, silencing sounds firing as you rollover menu entries and adding keyboard :keyboard: navigation.

MATE Panel

  • MATE Panel has had a long-standing bug fixed that caused it to crash :boom: when the panel was reset or replaced. This was most noticeable when switching panel layouts via MATE Tweak and could result in the panel layout being left incomplete or entirely absent. This bug is now fixed! MATE Tweak has been updated to neatly integrate with with fixed MATE Panel behaviour so that layout switching is now 100% reliable.

What has changed since the Ubuntu MATE 18.04 LTS?

Since Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, Ubuntu MATE has added the follow changes:

  • Added multiple coloured theme variations :art: as one-click installs for those of you who simply don’t like Chelsea Cucumber :cucumber:
  • Added experimental ZFS :file_folder: install option.
  • Added GameMode :video_game: from Feral Interactive.
  • Fixed several crashers :bomb: in Brisk Menu and added keyboard :keyboard: navigation.

  • Fixed rendering window controls on HiDPI :mag: displays.
  • Fixed irregular icon sizes :straight_ruler: in MATE Control Center and made them render nicely on HiDPI displays.
  • Fixed unresponsive Caja :file_folder: extensions.
  • Fixed mate-power-manager :electric_plug: to use upower-glib get_devices2().
  • Fixed unresponsive Pluma :notebook: plugins.
  • Fixed a crasher :bomb: in MATE Dock Applet due to an Attribute error in adjust_minimise_pos().
  • Fixed auto-start errors in mate-session-manager.
  • Fixed saving/restoring custom panel layouts via MATE Tweak.
