How difficult/easy would it be to package the EDUbuntu apps into a Mint distro? I install Mint 90% of the time and usually add the edubuntu packages. TIA

If any of the Edubuntu applications you want depend on using Gnome 3 or Unity, I expect difficulties as Mint has forked Gnome 2 to use their own styles
--although the promise is compatibility over time

Gnome 3 dust has to settle for awhile before that might be 100% true..

Now from the internet hits, it seems that EdUbuntu 11x is Gnome 2 based, so that set is likely Ok
    I think this is probably a true statement
But watch for later releases or any Ubuntu moves to integrate into their desktop preference: now being Gnome 3x..
    However I also expect that may take a while, so for now it looks like it should be OK, at least if you stick with Mint 11x, Ubtuntu (EDubuntu 11x)
--newer versions such Mint 12x, Ubuntu 12x (Edbuntu version ??) are likely to diverge based on each vendors desktop ideas..

Edubuntu is Alpha test for now version 12 forwards..
http://linux.softpedia.com/
http://news.softpedia.com/news/Ubuntu-1 ... 0335.shtml
  • The Unity interface received lots of improvements, configuration settings, Nautilus quicklist support, maximized windows improvements, and quicklist items accessible with one right click.
  • The GNOME components have been updated to latest stable 3.2.2 version, the LightDM login manager has now support for theming, and the desktop wallpapers list has four rows.

And what Mint 12x is up to..
http://www.linuxmint.com/rel_lisa_whatsnew.php
    matches Gnome version with Ubuntu 12x
--but some other differences

Thanks. All I really need are the educational programs & games, which appear to be just bundles of various programs, not the full of the edubuntu system.
