Linux Mint 12 LXDE/XFCE editions

Postby Alohacoconut78 on Sun Jan 08, 2012 1:30 pm

Hi,

Any idea when Linux Mint 12 LXDE/XFCE editions will be released? After the failure called Gnome 3 I'm looking forward to the more usably and well performing editions.
Also, will there be a 64 bit LXDE edition?

Thanks for the good job with the distro!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

XFCE is available as DVD with Linux Mint Debian: http://www.linuxmint.com/download_lmde.php. Their won't be a DVD version of Linux Mint 12 with XFCE. You can of course add the XFCE desktop environment to any installed Linux Mint 12. See a guide here: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/737

Linux Mint 12 LXDE is in development AFAIK. I'm not sure whether it will be both a 32 bits and 64 bits release.

Historically Mint LXDE has been 32-bit only. I notice though that Kendall now has a 64-bit version of Peppermint OS, so maybe he'll decide to do the same thing for Mint.
