Re: Mate build of mint and mint debian (lmde) needed.

I have to disagree with mintyed and cwwgateway :lol: Using the latest spin of LMDE I am able to boot between Mate and Cinnamon merely by logging out and then in again and choosing my preference. No having to install another OS. "Tis perfect for this geriatric who likes a liitle variety in his ...

Re: Mate build of mint and mint debian (lmde) needed.

I agree that there should be a seperate MATE iso, and I think that there will be once it matures (meaning the next iso re-spin). Mint debian cinnamon is exactly (or at least almost exactly) the same as mint 12 cinnamon. The defaults are exactly the same, and all of the themes, applets, and extensio...

Mate build of mint and mint debian (lmde) needed.

as noted it would be a good idea to have a mate only build. as mate is continuation of gnome 2 project with comparability for gnome 3. what this build would do is remove all un-needed gnome 3 apps and extras that are not required by mate. Cinnamon is ok to use as well but mate is the original gnome ...

It works like a champ, but wouldn't on earlier versions of Windows OS emulations once it updated to a later version of Wine. Have you tried making a specific configuration in wine for eS...
