 Install MATE Desktop Envt on Mint, without removing your beautiful Cinnamon. (for better performance)


Its a proven fact that, MATE version of Linux-Mint performs better than the CINNAMON version. If your computer is having issues with GNOME 3 based CINNAMON, then I personally recommend you to use MATE desktop inbterface (GNOME 2).

 

Open your terminal : Ctrl + Alt + T

 

Type: sudo apt-get install mint-meta-mate

 

Type your PASSWORD

 

You are done. Now exit the terminal.

 

Click MENU, then LOG-OUT (or press Super-Key / Windows-Key, then Log-Out)

 

Now aside of your login name, there will be an icon encircled.

 

Click on that. Now choose MATE..

 

Type password.

 

Benefits of MATE:

  • Load faster
  • Better performance
  • Works best in Low-end computers.

 

Aothor's opinion:

  • Tried mate, but I'm addicted to cinnamon. love its style. So I disabled the startup apps of cinnamon and reduced the graphical utilisation. It works.. So if you need these tips, comment or search GOOGLE or forums.

 

KINDLY PROMOTE MY TUTORIALS, FRIENDS.... PLEASE.......
