I want to install Trisquel 7, but only with MATE Desktop. Is there any way to install it without X windows (pure system in text mode) and then install xorg lightm and MATE 1.8.1? How to do it?

Hi, yes, I'm trying to do something similar right now, with XFCE.

You must use the NetInstall iso, and choose "Trisquel Console Environment"

The inspiration is in this page from documentation:
https://trisquel.info/en/wiki/build-your-own-version-trisquel

Indeed, I'm trying from inside a virtualization before installing on the pc.

OK, but what is the correct way to install MATE Desktop 1.8?

Once you have rebooted into your brand new terminal-only environment, execute:
$ sudo apt-get install mate-desktop

I just install MATE using $ sudo apt-get install mate-desktop, but it's not correctly. Resolution is too small, and menu "Programs" not works. And during install dpkg shows some error at end.
