[Solved] How to install Budgie desktop Linux mint 18 Xfce.

How to install Budgie desktop Linux mint 18 Xfce.

http://www.ostechnix.com/install-budgie ... 16-04-lts/

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:budgie-remix/ppa


Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update


Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install budgie-desktop



Don't know if this will work on other flavors of Ubuntu, Linux Mint 18 or earlier versions it does require a lot of gnome tools. Note Budgie desktop is slow loading, once loaded it is ok. Don't use on Debian unless you are using Debian Stretch but even then, I am not sure if it will work.

Ubuntu Xenial & Wily versions might work.

One tip if not using xfce, install thunar (nautilus may not show in the menu)

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install thunar


Edit to add.

The Budgie desktop does crash occasionally but on Linux mint 18 Xfce it recovers automatically. I read somewhere this is a bug.

Ubuntu Budgie Is Now an Official Ubuntu Flavor

This turned up today so i don't know if there will now be improvements with bugs.
