First, there will be no Linux Mint 10 LMDE. Linux Mint Debian Edition is a rolling release. This means that, while the iso may be updated occasionally, there will be no further releases - to have the latest system you merely have to install all updates. And the LMDE installer is a Work in progress.
To install fluxbox do
- Code: Select all
apt install fluxbox
or install the fluxbox package in synaptic.
Log out, and after selecting a user, at the bottom of the screen there will be a listbox labelled session. Click it and choose fluxbox.
Uninstalling gnome requires removing the packages that make up the gnome DE. I would recommend that you did not remove them, just configure your fluxbox environment and make it default. If you must uninstall, the applications have fairly obvious names mostly (e.g. openoffice); but you may want to remove Metacity (the WM, as it is now replaced with fluxbox) and Nautilus (the file browser - you will need to install another one though.)
Hope this helps.
