I know I should go to EPEL with this, but thought to ask here in case
anyone else uses Mate and may know more about it than I do.

I had installed the MATE 1.12 packages from epel testing a few days ago,
but since that did not include some of the devel packages, I just removed
it and reinstalled all the MATE 1.10 packages from epel-7.

they all installed fine, but now my desktop has a background, and top
and bottom panels and nothing else. right-click on the desktop produces
no context menu.

Anyone know what I've missed (or messed) ?


    Under no circumstances will I ever purchase anything offered to me as
    the result of an unsolicited e-mail message. Nor will I forward chain
    letters, petitions, mass mailings, or virus warnings to large numbers
    of others. This is my contribution to the survival of the online
