Nice! Thank you :blush:

Ah, thanks for letting me know, I did not know this. I actually thought @Ste74 still maintains the MATE Edition because he temporarily used my mate-tweak pull request as a patch to make mate-tweak work for Manjaro.

Good news! Arch just added libayatana-appindicator to their community repo. It’s currently available in the Manjaro unstable branch.
