I think my problem is MDM never installed. When I try to reinstall MDM install fails with following message:
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
When I reboot, I get an error: problem writing bytes but the boot succeeds.
How can I fix mdm install problem? Thanks for your help in advance.
Some day soon was yesterday. Actually, I used your conversion instruction published in your blog in order to turn one of my Precise Pangolins into Linux Mint13 Cinnamon. It worked really great.karlchen wrote:This HowTo reads promising. I may feel like trying your steps one day soon ...

I think, though, with all the work that goes into it - you're better off simply backing up your files and do a clean install om Mint 13.

To tell the truth, I dared exclude the Linux Mint "Romeos" from sources.list thus making sure Cinnamon 1.4up3 would be installed and Nautilus would be preserved.
As far as I can tell 24 hours later, the biggest issue which has not been fixed, yet, is that when gnome-control-center is launched the "Appearance" icon is missing.
All in all absolutely great step-by-step instruction!
If the time needed were the only criterion, then weblave's conversion is much faster than a complete new installation from the scratch.I think, though, with all the work that goes into it - you're better off simply backing up your files and do a clean install om Mint 13.

Also, there will always be Ubuntu leftovers, e.g. notifyosd, Ubuntu branding, icons, themes and stuff like that. You will still end up with a hybrid between Ubuntu and Mint with 2 software centers and two update managers etc. The only way to end up with Mint 13 is to install Mint 13.
