"Like its predecessor, GnoMenu, it also has the same problem, namely "OAFIID: MATE_MateNu". Yes, this is very much a problem experienced by some people (although I have not got it). After I installed dockbarx-mate, and finally the application is running smoothly. Or, you have not installed the required packages, the "python python-numpy python-mate".


Solution 1: Install dockbarx-mate (ubuntu, debian)

Solution 2: Install the required packages, the "python python-numpy python-mate"."
