Just curious. Did you leave the sources.list in the default state, or point it to Debian Testing. I have mine set to Testing.

You will still have all of the Xfce stuff installed. If you're careful you can uninstall most of that and have a little bit cleaner KDE system. Either way, it doesn't interfere with your KDE desktop, just makes the menu a little cluttered. Enjoy.

Just done the same this morning. Mind you, it was so easy I thought to myself that I must have missed something important?!
Just to make life a bit more interesting, upgraded it all to Sid/Unstable and added some (really nice) icons called "Caledonia". This is now one sweet system!!
The old workhorse it is on is not real flush in resources though, so, this evenings job will be a "KDE Performance Prune" and by tomorrow I'm sure this will be a real keeper.
Does this still qualify as "running LMDE" ?

On my PC which uses an AMD E-350 processor/ 6470M graphics chip 8 Gb RAM, KDE gives the best graphics performance with AMD's Catalyst 11.10 driver. Both MATE and CINNAMON do not seem to benefit as much from the Catalyst driver. Hopefully in the final release both MATE and CINNAMON will run much faster on my system because I would like to use them both.
