I have a home file server running Debian stable with Gnome Shell. I'd like to install the Mate desktop environment and remove Gnome. I'm wondering if there's a how-to here somewhere or if anyone has useful advice before I start.
I imagine that what I need to do is to change my sources to the latest LMDE ones (I've seen some threads on that, but I'd like to be sure that I have the current info) and then install the Mate desktop. Is there a metapackage for the whole shebang? Any pointers as to what I should include/remove/watch out for?
Thanks in advance for any tips.
