This would be a good time to rebase Mint KDE to Debian :D

Seems to be Clem's idea

In June, the focus will shift towards LMDE which will receive the Mint 11 features, and for which we’re also planning specific improvements (particularly on the installer and the update manager), as well as the KDE and LXDE editions.

Well, I had read that and had also toyed with that same zerozero idea... with the current developments going on with Gnome3 and Unity, seems that KDE is still preserving some amount of sanity.

However, Clem's statement can be understood in EITHER of 2 ways - the first one is indeed what zerozero implies.

The 2nd way of interpreting Clem's plan COULD be:
the focus will shift towards {1} LMDE which {blah blah}, as well as {2} the KDE and LXDE editions.
Meaning that, KDE and LXDE could be the 2nd focus for June, but NOT NECESSARILY associated with LMDE.

Hey Clem, what was it that you REALLY meant here ? Do your KDE & LXDE priorities stand within LMDE's framework or not ??? :mrgreen:

Well, one of the ideas I'm currently playing with is using Clonezilla to duplicate the partitions of my current LMDE-XFCE install (including of course the 600+ Mb of post-ISO updates), and activating another install where I'd start adding some KDE components (plasma desktop and workspaces, to start with), and see how that works out...

I'm testing a KDE install over the regular LMDE, and so far I like it a lot. It seems to be easy to setup different workspaces which can be dedicated to different activities, unlike (I think) gnome 2.x, and it's much more stable and finished than Gnome3/gnome-shell. I used the the link provided by in the original post to choose the packages to be installed.
For now I keep the gnome 2.3x environment as a fallback, but I'm not sure to turn back for quite some time, only perhaps when Gnome3/gnome-shell are more finished.
Would be nice to have a mintified Start Menu in KDE 4.6 though...

you can try lancelot, it's probably the closest to a mint menu you'll find in KDE

For emerald junkies , there's smaragd , kwin plugin for using emerald decorators , instead kwin/decorator/aurorae.
So you can use emerald without compiz...
