The Linux Mint – Cinnamon edition is a completely different download from the Mate edition.
If you have multiple desktops installed, you should see the option to choose which desktop environment you want to use at the log-in screen. If you don’t see any
options, Mate is not installed.
What are you using to run Cool Edit???
Thank you for your support!

Subject: [CRTech] Dumb Linux question ;)
After banging my head on searches through many Linux forums, I'm stumped. (I have Mint 18.1 installed with Cinnamon)
Now, I want to switch from the "Cinnamon" desktop (which constantly crashes on my test machine) to the "Mate" desktop system. According to the Package Manager, it's already installed... but I can't find how to switch to it. :P
BTW, if anyone's curious... I did get Cool Edit to work!! :D
