Postby Edward78 » 09 May 2019 05:02

I use Linux Mint (Mate desktop) now, but am thinking about a rolling release, is Mate in the future?

I'm afraid not. The XK in SolydXK stands for Xfce and Kde and I never planned to change that unless one of the two seize to exist, of course.

We've already had this discussion about a community project here: viewtopic.php?f=72&t=6662. Feel free to offer your help there but if you can't contribute substantially don't get your hopes up, everybody is usually to busy. Somebody has to do the work.

if you want to personally use it. you can start with a vanilla matte debian. add solydxk repos, install the packages. done. you can also start with solydx, install mate. done. having two DE might be redundant for some people but since X is quite small it's not a major issue. the beauty of debian allows you to create your own system
