Linux Mint Gnome+KDE+XFCE+Fluxbox Combo

Postby apv507 » Mon Mar 09, 2009 10:56 pm

Linux Mint is wonderful, I switched to linux about 6 months ago and have tried many gnome distros and a few of kde's and xfce's and one fluxbox. I'm wondering if there is a way to install all 4 of these into one super linux mint and then just pick my session every time. Will this effect speed at all or program load time? I considered installing all 4 versions, seeing what packages are installed and then install one version and use synaptic to get the other packages, but that would involved downloading 3000+ packages individually, minus dependancies. Maybe Im just too indecisive but I like each version for something different.

You could install several DEs but you would not get the full flavour of the Mint edition
We are making meta packages and if you use these you come closer but not all the way
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
