In some instructions explain that to install Mate Desktop in Ubuntu 18.04, we must execute:
sudo apt install ubuntu-mate-desktop
sudo apt install mate-desktop-environment
sudo apt install mate-core
And some more...
mate-desktop-environment-extras mate-dock-applet mate-applets
What is the difference between these packages and what is the correct way to install them, as the case may be? (comparing the results with Ubuntu Mate 18.04 distro, minimum and complete installation)
Due to the comments, I consider that I should add the following clarifying information:
Ubuntu Mate is a distro that is supposed to contain all the elements of the Mate desktop, however this is not true.
It includes: ubuntu-mate-desktop, mate-dock-applet, mate-applets, mate-desktop-environment-core
Does not include: mate-core, mate-desktop-environment-extras (This package includes: mate-desktop-environment)
It is because of this madness, that, in my opinion, the method of installing Debian (choosing which desktop we are going to work with) I think should be the standard, to avoid these problems (like the one I describe in my question)
