How to install KDE, Mate, Cinnamon, and XFCE all on Mint.

Filed under: Uncategorized — ioconnor @ 2:49 pm

Steps needed for when I next need to do this. (Use defaults when prompted.)

  1. sudo apt-get install xfce4
  2. sudo apt-get install cinnamon
  3. sudo apt-get install kde-full

Or even better:

  1. time sudo apt-get install xfce4 cinnamon mate-core mate-desktop-environment kde-full

time sudo apt-get install xfce4 cinnamon mate-core mate-desktop-environment kde-full
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
cinnamon is already the newest version.
mate-core is already the newest version.
mate-desktop-environment is already the newest version.
kde-full is already the newest version.
xfce4 is already the newest version.
