Thank you for filing this.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2012-10-17 08:47:55 EDT
To be clear you installed 'mate-desktop' *package* or 'mate-desktop' *group*?

Hint: only the latter will give you what you want, as the /usr/share/xsession/mate.desktop file is provided only my mate-session-manager package, which is a member of the mate-desktop comps/yum group.

To achieve that, do one of:

yum groupinstall "MATE Desktop"
yum groupinstall mate-desktop
yum install @mate-desktop
