Sorry for late reply, if you haven't done yet;
I followed step by step from:
there are few other Guild/How to on the web , but i find it simple, clean & the best and also included set up LightDM to be default. My Steps Were: i installed CentOS 7 64bit with gnome3 then installed Mate (and set LightDM as default) then reboot to test, after that uninstalled Gnome3 & its applications manually. then updated CentOS 7 (so i didn't had to update gnome3).
List of my uninstalled apps:
gnome-icon theme extra
gnome-Disk Usage Analyzer
gnome-packagekit --(i replaced it with Yum Extender - it works great/faster & smarter; in my experience of course)
Totem --(i replaced it with SMPlayer and vlc always in my system)
Gedit --(i replaced it with Pluma)
And few others i can't remember now. you can install Mate's apps to replace all of those above. I replaced them because Mate alternatives are faster/use less resources etc + i don't like much Online thingies bundled with any application that not suppose to; for example gnome-online-accounts part of Totem - which was my default player on CentOS 6.
In addition, if you want to tweak CentOS 7 fonts:
if you want to colourize panel/menu a bit Install: "gnome-color-chooser" - a gnome2 tool.
Am! what else ? - if any more question feel free to ask. hope i haven't done much spell/typo mistake - i am kind of sleepy, still happy to check forum today.
Hope you'll enjoy Mate .....Edge
