 When I improve de profiles for de-info script I can't find system
 environment variables specific for some of them.

 I check presence of $CINNAMON_VERSION for detection cinnamon
 I can use $GNOME_KEYRING_CONTROL or $GNOME_SESSION_ID (marked as
 deprcated). Both of that vars looks not perfect for detection
 An finally I can't find variable specific to Mate :(

 The good solution may be adding by PCDM some variable with desktop name.
 Anyway de profiles scripts are checks $DESKTOP_SESSION.
