installed Mint7, Can i get it XFCE ? [SOLVED]

Postby abuyusuf » Tue May 12, 2009 10:07 am

today my first day with LinuxMint7, but sure i got it in GNOME, No Kde Or Xfce Available in the CE Section ..

So, Can i get it into Xfce without waiting for the Official CE Edition ?

I installed Xfce today, But many of Mint Special Additions not there !, like the Menu, and "Upload" option in the right click menu, ..

Any solutions ?

Cause there are no CE's of the 7 release and mint 7 is only in the RC status, you've to wait until the main edition reaches the final stage and after that the CE's

development was delayed due to personal issues: viewtopic.php?f=110&t=24984
You can get the mint xfce stuff as soon as they're available by installing packages (e.g. mint-meta-xfce, thunar-custom-actions-xfce, mintupload-xfce) from the repositories. However, according to http://packages.linuxmint.com/#7main there are non yet available, so I'm afraid you have to wait.

Alternatively, you could try adding the felicia repos, then installing mint-meta-xfce, but you will almost certainly have undescribeable problems with that, as there will probably be conflicts.

You can't get everything from Linux Mint 6 because it'll break your system.
XFCE 4.6 has some changes that isn't compatible with 4.2.
So the settings wouldn't work and you wouldn't be able to login.
