About the MATE System Tools ---------------------------- - Fork: MATE System Tools package is a fork of GNOME System Τοols package. - Targeted to desktop users: These tools are intended to simplify the tasks of configuring a Unix system for workstations. They are not intended for configuring Unix servers. - Unified system configuration: Configuring different Unix systems is different; every Unix system has different ways of being administrated. The MATE System Tools aspire to unify these systems. - Multi-platform: Each one of the MATE System Tools is split in two parts: a backend (which is typically written in Perl) and a user interface frontend (which is typically written in C or Python). The backends are written in a way that should allow us to quickly adapt them to various different flavors of Unix; the backend probes your system and parses the existing system files. When the user has finished editing the system settings, the configuration is written back as patches to the system files. This means that the MATE System Tools use whatever configuration files are available on your system, and you can still edit those files by hand or with other configuration tools without conflicts or data loss. - For Distributors: Distributions may want to modify src/users/user-profiles.conf.in and add groups that are specific to that distribution. For example add the sudo group for Administrators on Ubuntu based distributions. ---------- Please send any patches or technical questions/requests to the developers.
