Followed instructions exactly, MATE up and running pretty easily. However, 
1. LightDM (/usr/sbin/lightdm-gtk-greeter) was popping up an error at login, and every login I have to login in twice. This error pops up every 5-10 minutes 
2. I noticed the Software Boutique is empty but haven't done much with that.

My biggest issues were trying to run Firefox. (Midori works well enough)
1. Firefox won't even pop up, crashing with segmentation faults.
2. This led me to realize that the way this build is installed, it didn't go through the usual setups, so no locales were set.
Fixed the issue:
Code:
locale-gen en_US.UTF-8
Then
Code:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales
So this worked but kept throwing errors in Firefox: "firefox crashed with sigsegv in raise()"

Any suggestions on this? Starting to wonder if it's just an issue of 16.04 MATE being so fresh and wondering if I should try another desktop image. Huh

Thanks in advance.

I was able to install Midori and it works very well.

Code:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:midori/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install midori
