You just want Mate and nothing more.

 BYOI procedure

  1. git clone https://github.com/arcolinuxb/arco-mate
  2. change packages.x86_64 if you want to
  3. run script 30
  4. Three times “y”
  5. test iso in virtualbox

Packages.x86_64 can be edited

Mid July 2018 packages.both was changed into packages.x86_64 since there is no more support for 32 bits.

What will be installed on your iso is defined in the packages.x86_64 file. If you want to exclude or include packages then you will need to edit that file. We will keep updating packages.x86_64 in time. It will differ from the video in the future.

We will use Xfce as the delivery system for your desktop.
The livecd will not have your chosen desktop.
You need to install it to see it. 

If you want to autologin
change /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
autologin-session=your desktop

You can find the name of your desktop in
/usr/share/xsessions
