Re: SolydC - How to add Cinnamon 2.0 to SolydXK

Must be some Gnome pkg in Debian that requires all the extra gnome pkgs. Actually XFCE has always been my preferred DE. As Hinto said, I get it with not...

I would guess its best to set up some sort of apt-pinning (.etc/apt/preferences), but looking I see no preferences file in new iso by default. Dont know if this is by design or not.. :?: If anyone has any idea, please let us...

Re: Breakages and News - SolydXK-tracking Debian SID

Siduction with Solydxk/Mint repos. Now that's interesting. So... I'm going to take a wild stab and say that Mint's backport romeo and backport romeo incoming are sort of like Mint versions of unstable and experimental?

Ah! ok. Guess you will see the new one on next UP.
