I wish to install linux mint XFCE on my Lubuntu 12.04 LTS

Post by vimal0212 »

Dear Friends,
Greetings from India.
I wish to install Linux Mint XFCE on my Lubuntu 12.04 desktop.
How it possible?
Can I enable Whisker menu with that version?
I like the simplicity of Linux Mint xfce.

Hello vimal0212 and welcome to Mint Forums,

Let me see if I have your question right: Do you want to replace lubuntu or have them both available on that machine?
if you want to replace it. when you install mint there is an option to replace lubuntu.
if you want to have them both available a boot up time there is an option to install mint along side of Lubuntu
when you get to the install screen that says where to install mint just check the appropriate one.

My plan is to install Xubuntu desktop in the same installation (not install by erasing existing Lubuntu / dual boot).
Then add Linux Mint Xfce repository and install LinuxMint Xfce theme and other features.

That's really, really unnecessary :shock: :shock: :shock: . Why all that work??? There's no reason to install Xubuntu and when finished installing it turn it in Mint Xfce. You have already Mint 15 with Xfce. In fact, every version of Mint has a Xfce version available.

You want to have both desktop environments in 1 distro? That's easy: just install the other desktop environment as well and at the login screen you can choose whether to log into LXDE or Xfce.
