Migrating from Ubuntu to Linux Mint Mate, important notes

Few things to note when migrating:

  • Gedit is now pluma
  • Nautilus is now caja
  • Things that started with gnome now start with mate, such as Gnome-terminal is now mate-terminal
  • The green  theme can be cleaned up to not look not green at all, select appearances under the preferences menu
  • The menu bar can be moved back to the top of the screen like the classic gnome 2 Ubuntu.  Another bar can be added to the bottom of the screen for desktop and bun icons.
  • Install synaptic, to get the software installing power back
