XFCE install package needed mint-meta-xfc?

Post by lmuserx4849 » Tue Dec 19, 2017 2:18 am

If I want to install the XFCE Desktop, will the package mint-meta-xfce do the trick or do I need more? I tried Cinnamon, but I don't think it is for me.

The safest, and usually recommended, way to change desktop environments is a new installation.

Interesting.

This should be possible (maybe not recommended :-)). When you logon, the icon next to your name (above the password field) expands to "Select desktop environment". In theory, that could contain cinnamon, mate, xfce. I'm never 100% sure if the meta package are the way to go or not.
