Xfce edition for Linux Mint Nadia?


I note that Linux Mint 14 has been released for both the MATE and Cinnamon desktops... but I don't see Xfce in the list of Mint editions.

Was Xfce as a default desktop environment in Linux Mint discontinued, or has it just not been released yet?

But won't that get me a standard Xfce4 desktop instead of Mint's modified Xfce theme if Mint has discontinued Xfce as a base edition?

The XFCE edition of Mint, like the other editions except the Cinnamon/MATE edition, is a community edition. Therefore it is usually released later the main version.

Not sure if there will be a community edition of Mint 14 with Xfce. I think the Xfce edition of Mint 13 was created to coincide with Mint 13 being a long-term support edition. But you can always try installing Mint 14 first, then installing the PPA for the Xfce 4.10 desktop. After that, find the Mint themes and MintMenu packages (plus all dependent packages) in the regular Mint 14 repositories. That's similar to how I upgraded Xubuntu 12.04 to what's essentially Mint 13 Xfce (at least as far as the desktop environment is concerned.)
