Install MATE Desktop on Fedora 16 / Fedora 17

In one of my previous posts ,there was post to install mate desktop on ubuntu, there was mistake that Fedora comes default with mate Desktop environment was not possible to install mate desktop on Fedora as it was mostly packaged for debian based operating system but now development has started on other distos too .So I tried out it on Fedora 16. Here are steps to install MATE Desktop on Fedora 16.

Open Terminal ,Login as root and Type following commands to install
1.  yum update yum
For Fedora 16 

 yum install http://dl.dropbox.com/u/49862637/Mate-desktop/mate-desktop-fedora/releases/16/noarch/mate-desktop-release-16-5.fc16.noarch.rpm

For Fedora 17

yum install https://dl.dropbox.com/u/49862637/Mate-desktop/fedora_17/mate-desktop-fedora-updates/noarch/mate-desktop-release-17-2.fc17.noarch.rpm

3.yum groupinstall MATE-Desktop

After the Installation is finished Logout ,and at login screen select session as MATE while loging in.
