Ubuntu MATE is a community developed Ubuntu based operating system that beautifully integrates the MATE Desktop and offers a stable, easy-to-use operating system with a configurable desktop environment. Ideal for those who want the most out of their computers and prefer a traditional desktop metaphor. With modest hardware requirements it is suitable for modern desktops, laptops, single board computers and older hardware alike. Ubuntu MATE makes new computers fast and older computers usable.


Ubuntu MATE has a number of guiding objectives and goals.

  • Accessible to all, regardless of language and physical ability.
  • Increase both Ubuntu and MATE Desktop user adoption.
  • Ubuntu alternative for computers that aren’t powerful enough to run a composited desktop.
  • First choice Ubuntu platform for remote workstation solutions such as X2Go.
  • Recreate the halcyon days of Ubuntu for users who prefer a traditional desktop metaphor.
  • Use themes and artwork similar to Ubuntu so that Ubuntu MATE is immediately familiar.
  • When possible contribute to Debian so both the Debian and Ubuntu communities benefit.
  • Software selection will favour functionality and stability over lightness and whimsy.

What’s New in Ubuntu MATE 17.04?

We’re totally over the bloody moon to announce Ubuntu MATE 17.04. This is our favourite release of Ubuntu MATE so far and, we believe, a real return to form. Ubuntu MATE 16.10 was a transitional release, in every sense, and 17.04 concludes the upheaval of migrating to GTK3+. This has been a release focused on refining the distro and sweating the details. As always, we’re never finished and eager to start work on 17.10 to bring you futher improvements and refinement. But for now, we hope you enjoy Ubuntu MATE 17.04 as much as we’ve enjoyed making it for you.

We’ve put a great deal of effort into refining Ubuntu MATE 17.04 in the following ways:

  • The MATE Desktop team did an amazing job releasing MATE Desktop 1.18.0 which completes the transition to GTK3+, fixes countless bugs and introduces some much needed new features and modernisations.

  • Daniel Foré from elementary contributed new icons to Ubuntu MATE which deliver style and panache.

  • Ikey Doherty from Solus created Brisk Menu in collaboration with Ubuntu MATE. This efficient menu is integrated in the new Pantheon layout available via MATE Tweak.

  • Dave from Linux & Other Stuff contributed a new dark theme, called Ambiant-MATE Dark. We love it!

  • Wolfgang Ulbrich from MATE Desktop worked tirelessly on all the Ubuntu MATE themes making them all fully compatible with GTK 3.22 add ensuring every pixel is placed exactly where it should be.

  • Michael Tunnel from TuxDigitial contributed retouched art assets for the Ubuntu MATE themes including scaled variants for when we are ready to go HiDPI.

  • Luke Horwell from Ubuntu MATE updated the Bulk Queue in Ubuntu MATE Welcome and the Software Boutique so you can now queue up multiple application install/remove and execute them in one operation.
