Install ubuntu-desktop on Linux Mint?

Post by xavierbaez » Sun Jun 16, 2019 5:11 pm

Is it possible to have Linux Mint with Cinnamon 4.0 and also have the best of Ubuntu on the same partition?

I would love to have Linux Mint benefit of Cinnamon 4.0, however I would also like to have Ubuntu?

the specific package that I am looking for is:
ubuntu-desktop 1.417.1 amd64 The Ubuntu desktop system

Has anybody done this?
