Good to know that, thanks!caerolle wrote:Oh, and in case you didn't know, you can add any of the available desktop environments to your install, then select the one you want to use for your current session when you log in. I think they even have OpenBox and FluxBox if you wanted to use just a desktop manager instead of a desktop environment. Plus, I think there are several thread in the Forums on how to do that.
Dankjewel buurman Vincent (to all others, excuse the insiders lingo, but we're from neighbouring countries with the same language; sort of)Vincent Vermeulen wrote:Hi Ludo, welcome to the Linux Mint forums Thanks for joining the forums!
Be sure also to check out the Community website (ideas, tutorials, and hardware and software reviews). And as you mention you are new to KDE and trying to find your way around it, have a look at the KDE UserBase Wiki. Very helpful to get started with KDE.
You can also chat in real-time with other Linux Mint users. In the Mint Menu, in the Internet section, start the application Quassel IRC. After a short setup, you will automatically get connected to #linuxmint-chat for general chat and #linuxmint-help for support with other Linux Mint users.
Have fun with Linux Mint.
Thanks Vincent, but I think I'd better start with where I am (KDE) and get the feel of that before I make another move.

See release announcement here: http://mate-desktop.org/2012/07/30/mate-1-4-released/
To install MATE 1.4 on Linux Mint 13 MATE, see these steps: viewtopic.php?f=206&t=111533&p=624015#p624015
