Hi, Mach50.

Moved your thread from "Linux Mint - Main Edition - Other Topics" to "Chat about Linux".
Reason:
Ubuntu 17.10 beta is not Linux Mint. They are two closely related, but separate operating systems.
What you tried on Ubuntu 17.10 beta was not running Linux Mint on top of Ubuntu 17.10 beta, but you added the desktop environments Cinnamon and Mate to Ubuntu 17.10.
Desktop environment does not equal operating system.

Regards,
Karl

Not only that, despite your clains you're obviously a complete noob running a beta Ubuntu release and doing things like installing multiple DEs that shouldn't be done even on a stable ubuntu release.

Will you still be gloating when it breaks? Not if, when.

Reason: offending noun removed by moderator. You are free to consider installing Cinnamon/Mate on Ubuntu 17.10beta unprofessional, but this does not justify being offensive.

I'm not so drastic, and then, it's on a testing partition

Anyway, I like to have fun in the test, I have ubuntu 16.04 (unity) and install gnome shell session and cinnamon sessions and it works well

Another partion have Mint cinnamon and also have gnome shell session and even here everything is fine.

EDIT @Mach50 however, the title should be changed, nothing has to do with Mint, but Mate and Cinnamon on Ubuntu 17.10
