      Hi Vince

      if you used the command line to install everything in one go, I missed off the package lightdm. After installing it it worked for me. I have, also, updated the post.

    The /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf did not exist, I had to create it and add those 2 lines. All other commands worked well and I have a working mate env … thank you.
