Re: Iggdrasil, a new amazing screenreader


You say in Mate we have other methods of configuring it.  I'm talking about configuring it in console, even if MATE is installed.

What is that way of configuring, you don't mean starting up MATE which is what I wanted to avoid.

It's like starting up a major load on the computer (MATE) just to be able to turn the Internet on.

Also if that is the only way, it brings up the difficulty in accessing the MATE Network settings using the mouse. I dislike playing "Pin the Mouse Tail on the Icon" game.  It's frustrating.

In headless, there is no need to use nmcli to configure the network,
'systemd-network' '/etc/network/interfaces' are some possibilities.

The utility is generaly pulled as an dependency.

This is already the case, nmcli is an dependency of Gnnome/ for example.
For Mate, it makes less sense as you have other means to configure it.
