My Dell quit working so I upgraded to a Acer at that point my I built won't work on it so I download the latest Mate and it works great. I want to have 4 Desktops right now it has 1 Desktop.

I want to boot up in EFI but when dose it stop and has a big padlock can that be fixed?

Nice to see you back Jack. :)

You need to turn off the Acer's EFI Secure Boot option.

Strange but if it works for you... :)

On my wife's Acer Aspire One notebook I don't even see Secure Boot as an option.

-update-
Found it. :) Have to press F2 instead of F12. Also change boot device sequence.

Hi, I use Porteus 5x64-RC1, Mate Desktop. After any electric blackout, i can`t login with guest user, may be some files got corrupt. At this situation i try to use Cinnamon desktop module, where i can login but icon and windows buttons dissaper.
Which folders and files i need to delete for restart Mate desktop environment ?

Another issues i have, if about Python. Can ask here or in other new topic ?

thanks
