Linux Lite with the MATE Desktop

<< < (6/6)

George S Rasmussen:
Jerry, I have to agree. The way you've got Linux Lite buttoned down configuration wise makes it difficult to work with. I understand why you do things this way and certainly don't argue with it. Given the audience you're targeting Linux Lite is a great option. 

Installing and running an alternate DE in Linux Lite is doable, but it's not easy and it doesn't work well. The best option is to leave Linux Lite as is and work with another lightweight Debian based distro, like MX Linux for example, that allows endless configuration options including substituting other DE's for Xfce.

Wish you and Linux Lite all the best as the year goes by Jerry.

Jerry:
Cheers George :)

Don't change a thing, Jerry. I'm in the process of reading some older threads to "catch up" since it has been so long since I was on here regularly. Sorry about the absence, but sometimes life gets in the way. Then add the fact that Lite "just works" with zero glitches,,,,,, well you get the idea.

I  have ver 3.8 on 2 laptops and just installed ver 4.2 on the desktop in my hobby room/man cave. It's still in "as installed" form. I have a few programs I'll change and then make a few tweaks to the appearance to suit me, but I'll be running that desktop with ver 4.x on it for 4 or 5 years, I expect. Other than updates there will be no changes made. I see no need. It does, "just work" and work well.

Many thanks to you and the guys for your efforts.  8)
