Resolved: HOW DO I CHANGE FROM MATE TO CINNAMON?

Postby RevMike on Thu May 03, 2012 11:11 am

Hi folks - I have installed Mint LMDE MATE 32 but want to try out Cinnamon which I see is on my system.
How can I move easily between the two desktops?
Thanks,
Mike

Open the menu and select Logout. At the login screen change the selection from Default to Cinnamon.

Thanks tdockery97
So simple when you know how. But a visible reminder at Log In would be helpful for the New User.
