So say you want the gnome desktop, you'd go:
cd /usr/local/sbin
sudo ./ gnome


Thanks for that.  I did that and it went away for a long time and did a ton of downloads and installs of stuff... and when I rebooted I am right back to where I started.  It has added a handful of "mate" things to the menu but it did not just start the mate environment.  Or maybe mate is "minimal" too?  But no, I think it is just where I started,

Do I have to do something to get the Mate desk top to start up?  If so can it be done automatically?

Thanks for your assistance,
