(I was seeing some wierdness with my network interface and display)
So I installed xubuntu-desktop on top of my Maya Cinnamon but realized that there was some problem with that. So I installed the "xfce4" package (which forces an uninstall of Xubuntu) and so far it looks okay. (I also installed xfce4-goodies)
I noticed that installation of xubuntu-desktop involved lots of packages. It seems that some of them are still present on my system (xubuntu-docs, xubuntu-artwork, etc...etc)
- I want to stick with xfce on top of ubuntu/mint (ie: I don't want to go with xfce on debian) so is this a stable way to go (ie, the way I've done this install)? I'm wondering if I should wipe my drive clean and go with a reinstall differently.
- I notice that I still have wicd for my network manager (which was not present on my Mint 11/Xubuntu/xfce install). Can I uninstall it and get some other network manager (if it gives me problems, which I'm starting to suspect it is)?
- Does my install of xfce depend on Cinnamon? Can I remove Cinnamon and still have xfce? If so, what are the ramifications (pros and cons) of doing this?
PS: I've edited this post a few times; sorry for any confusion
