Linux Mint 19 Tara w/ Gnome3

Post by RedSky27 » Tue Oct 16, 2018 2:58 am

I am currently running Linux Mint w/ Cinnamon (default)
Can I change to Gnome3? (if so how)
Or would i be more wise just to get Ubuntu Gnome?
Is there any difference between the Gnome3 of linux mint AND Ubuntu?

Code: Select all

apt install gnome
then change desktops at the login screen.

I can't tell you if that will create problems with your existing Cinnamon, I never tried. There is no difference in the files, Mint uses Ubuntu's repos. There will be a difference in the environment since you're adding it to the existing Mint/Cinnamon configuration. A clean Ubuntu/Gnome will certainly be the safest way, but you'd be without all the Mint modifications then.
