I see XFCE 4.6.0 was released. Will it be made available from the Repo as an update for Mint 6 XFCE CE? This version of Mint XFCE is currently running XFCE Version 4.4.2.

:mrgreen: Great job! I can't decide between Xfce and Flux as for the best light Mint, I have to try this one for sure.

4.6 will make a big difference in many core components, so you will have to make a new user account after installing it, because your current one might get borked during the upgrade process.

It should be in Linux Mint 7 XFCE CE, just like Xubuntu Jaunty.

Pardon my ignorance. But I can still manually upgrade Mint 6 XFCE to XFCE 4.6, right? Or no?

Yes you can, but 4.6 implements many of the core components in a different way.
So you will have to make a new user account after installing it, because your current account might get borked if you try a regualar upgrade of the XFCE components.

Currently installed on my laptop, sweet. Any plans for a 64 Bit version? I'd love to have my main rig to run XFCE

I don't have a 64bit cpu and I'm not sure how many would really use it.
You could and try to install it on Linux Mint x64.
Not sure how that would work out though.
It'll probably try and install the 32bit plugins.

@ yasarcay
There are never passwords on live CDs - definitely not on ours
Seems to me to be a bad CD
Did you check the md5dsum and burned as slow as possible?

I'm celebrating Saint Patrick's Day early with Linux Mint 6 Xfce :D
This release is the most user friendly Xfce distro I have ever
run. The Mint team did a great job on this one. I have been running
it since was released and I love it. :D

Thanks Merlwiz & Co! Cracking edition as always ^^

The no 64 bit edition is the only thing stopping me using it as a main distro to be honest. But i always like having a copy of Mint XFCE on my PC.

Make sure you download from The linuxmint.com website and if you download a .torrent check md5 to make sure it is good.

The last Live CD I used was Ubuntu 9.04 at start it asks for password but says Ubuntu loggin in 5 seconds. If you wait it logins automatically without password. Maybe you are experiencing this?

Why you don't like Gnome???


IMHO: I recommend XFCE instead of KDE, It works great and has everything most users need without consuming too much resources.

to make the desicion easier you can install the XFCE edition and add the KDE desktop. At loging you can choose wich one to use.

I love XFCE and Gnome but never liked KDE, it is all a personal preference
