Thread-topic: Dumb Linux question ;)

It looks like you can choose the Desktop environment at logon if Mate is already installed.  I found the information at https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=220767.

 

Cheers,

To the Braintrust:

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

Willie...
