Linux Mint 14's XFCE desktop arrives
The Linux Mint development team has taken exactly a month to put together the XFCE desktop version of the Ubuntu-based distribution. Other than the desktop, Linux Mint 14 XFCE sees few changes compared to the Cinnamon and Mate desktop versions released a month ago, with just a few bug fixes and a handful of updates merged shortly after the release of Linux Mint 14 in late November.
Linux Mint 14 XFCE is available to download from the project's download page as an alternative to Linux Mint 14 with the Cinnamon or Mate desktops. Users with older laptops with processors which do not support PAE and users with older ATI graphics cards should be sure to cast their eyes over the release notes prior to installation, as it may be necessary, in the case of PAE, to install Linux Mint 13 instead or, in the case of older ATI graphics cards, to downgrade Xorg and use legacy drivers.
