 +===== Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 ===== 
 +MATE is available through the [[https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL|Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL)]] repository, maintained by the Fedora Project. This should work on CentOS 7 as well, and any other compatible derivatives. 
 +After you install the epel-release-7*.rpm package to add the EPEL repository to Yum, you can install MATE with the following command: <code bash>yum groups install "MATE Desktop"</code> 
 +If you install this on a minimal system without an existing GUI configured (such as a GNOME or KDE desktop), you might want to install the X Window System group as well for local graphical logins: <code bash>yum groups install "X Window System"</code> 
 +you may also want to change the default systemd target to graphical: <code bash>systemctl set-default graphical.target</code>
