I updated my computer, and now the theme is all screwed up. The panel applets in Mate don't work, the icons are wrong or missing. In Mate-Tweak, the option I would usually choose, "Traditional" is missing. The selections are Gnome, and open suse. I tried searching for missing, libraries, and packages, but nothing makes my desktop look proper.

how to I return to my regular panel appearance?

    My 22.04 Ubuntu MATE system offers Traditional as a choice. Perhaps something went wrong with your upgrade. i.imgur.com/vv5g38B.png Nov 27, 2022 at 1:59

    I don't care for the choice of icons either in 22.04. This was a test install for me, and I decided to stick with 20.04 after seeing what it looked like. Nov 27, 2022 at 2:39

    I'm slowly addapting it, I havent found the traditional panel option yet, but the theme I had was called ambient-mate, I grabbed it off my other computer, and used the appearance app to install it. least I have that back. Its not that this PC is critical, its the one I use at my local makerspace, for tinkering on various things. its just annoying. I had that panel set up the way i wanted it. grrrr
