my system is "LMDE MATE Edition"
because you have mint-info-debian-mate
installed most probably
[/code] and tbh leave it as-is
you only need one meta-info-"DE" pkg installed.
you don't need to uninstall any of the DE's (actually you can add more if you want) and if/when a pkg conflict may occur because of that has to be dealt as a bug
Yes, I've changed LMDE to LMDE-MATE just because I felt it is what I should do with UP5 (but I will revert back to just LMDE if old package is still in repository and still "legal"
Thanks for answer, that was exactly what I wanted to hear

I'm an XFCE user for 2 years on suse and like it a lot, but I think MATE is better. At least for me. Mate, Compiz and Cinnamon were main reasons why I came to Mint (the other being rolling distro - Tumbleweed is a joke). I will continue to use xfce with LMDE on my home server, though.
On destkop I will eventually move on to cinnamon, but today it is nowhere as stable or good as MATE+Compiz (mate without compiz is nothing to write home about).
Although it already has some fancy features (I like the new sound menu and notification system for example).
It's a pity gnome developers screwed G3 so much.
