[manjaro-dev] a short report on my own findings on the latest mate image.

Hi all,

I've written the same report to both the manjaro dev list and the sonar 

I can confirm Kendell's findings on the mate basic image we've been 
testing.  The installer runs, and after the install is complete, all 
that comes up on reboot is a console with no speech.

I logged into the console blindly, as it were, with no speech, and had 
to do the following to even access the system remotely with the working 
version of Sonar that I have running on another machine.

sudo systemctl enable sshd

sudo systemctl start sshd

sudo systemctl enable dhcpcd

sudo systemctl start dhcpcd

Once that was done, I was able to ssh into the test machine with the 
working version of Sonar from back in July, and enable and start lightdm.

sudo systemctl enable lightdm

sudo systemctl start lightdm

Ad Kendell indicated, the mate gui then comes up, but still no orca.  I 
started it with alt f-2 and tping orca.  I've now got a keystroke 
defined to do that once the system boots.  Kendell's right when he said 
that most newer users won't want to go through all that when they 
install sonar.

Anyhow, I do have a talking mate basic image now, even though it took 
jumping through some hoops to get it going.

What is needed from this point?  I can probably do some stuff after 
church this morning.
