A community developed Ubuntu based operating system that beautifully integrates the MATE desktop.

This funding campaign has three main objectives: 
  • Fund the development of Ubuntu MATE and MATE Desktop via financial rewards to contributors and developers of either project.
  • Help subsidise the travel expenses of team members to represent MATE Desktop and Ubuntu MATE at FLOSS conferences.
  • Fund the Ubuntu MATE project's domain name registrations, transactional email service, and web application firewall.
  • Support other Open Source projects that Ubuntu MATE depends upon. 
Patrons will be rewarded with exclusive project news, updates and invited to an exclusive Telegram channel where you can talk to the developers directly.

Thanks to the generous support of our Patrons the MATE Desktop and Ubuntu MATE development has enjoyed significant momentum in recent years delivering features such as:

  • Ongoing support and maintenance of MATE Desktop
  • Development of MATE Dock Applet
  • Development of Ubuntu MATE Welcome and Software Boutique
  • New icon themes
  • Complete port of MATE Desktop to GTK3+
  • Global Menu support
  • Migration of all Ubuntu MATE themes to GTK 3.22
  • Addition of scaled assets in the Ubuntu MATE theme as a pre-cursor to HiDPI support
  • Implementation of HiDPI support in MATE Desktop 1.20
Go on, be brilliant, help grow our community.
