Merlwiz: Can you post upgrade instructions or send them to me so I can publish them on the wiki?

It's nice job, guys! Thank you. I will try it later. Mint is great but I also like lighter and faster linux flavours. Maybe the XFCE edition will take place of Gnome Mint on my lappy. The booting times is what I would like to be improved in the future, if possible.

i'm using cassandra with a gnome desktop, but i wish to upgrade to xfce.

There will be a casandra-xfce-desktop package to upgrade? how could i change my environment without formatting my pc?

Thanx for the amazing job of Linux Mint - it really changed my vision of the dark side!

Cass XFCE is running well

Postby capricornus » Wed Aug 08, 2007 2:54 am

As you already know, since Xmas I've been downloading and installing a lot of distro's, and everyone of them has its own particularities. Few remain in my CD-box thought, for several little inconveniences.
But Mint stays there.
I downloaded LinuxMint XFCE, on Tuesday at the uncredible rate of a few KB/s, today (Wednesday in BE) at about 140 KB/s, it takes a breakfast and reading the paper twice...LOL
I repartitioned my dedicated HD with GPartEd, #1 for LInuxMint, #2 and #5 for SWAP and #3 and #4 for the recently distributed Wolvix 1.1.0 .
Now I have two light-footed and formidable competitors, one from the Ubuntu rep, and one from the Slack rep.
They both install easily and run swiftly on a Sempron 2600 cpu with 512 MBRAM. They both recognized video and audio and a USB-HD. LinuxMint recognized a higher video-resolution that Wolvix does not, even not in the Display setting, but I'm still very pleased with both distro's, since they offer me everything I expect from my pc.
Thanks to the XFCE team!

Kinne, thanks from me as well! Downloading now at about 120KB/s, which is my maximal ADSL speed. Good!

Shouldn't there be a md5-checksum somewhere?
Thanks again.

Regarding XFCE......

Postby ElEdwards » Wed Aug 08, 2007 10:58 am

Please pardon my lack of knowledge... and if this is in the wrong place, I apologize.....

I realize that a lot of work has gone into this new edition and with all appreciation, I want to know what the advantage is of using this version VERSUS using Synaptic to get XFCE and adding that to an existing Mint installation.

I'm still learning and I appreciate your indulgence :)

Thanks!

Hi friend, if you use Synaptic for get XFCE desktop, you are really downloading only the XFCE desktop. Of course, many software and application's are include in that desktop.
Now if you use Linux Mint 3.0 XFCE community edition you will get not only XFCE Desktop, you're going to get special tools which are developed by this distro. ALso you could get artworks , that includes MInt wallpapers and many more.

Take care you
