Installing LinuxMint Xfce starting from a basic Ubuntu installation

Post by dashohoxha » Sun Sep 16, 2018 2:20 pm

How can I install LinuxMint Xfce, starting from a basic Ubuntu installation?
For example to install Ubuntu Xfce I can run:

Code: Select all

apt install xubuntu-core
or

Code: Select all

apt install xubuntu-desktop

How to continue from there to make the LinuxMint customizations?

apt install mint-meta-xfce

Of course you will need to add the Mint repositories to your software sources.

Edit: You will need to tell us which version of Ubuntu you are using, before we can tell you the correct Mint version repository you will need to add.
