I'm in the process of re-imaging my home system (read, the fam has to use it) from LM 10 to something else.
I use #! solely at work and roll on sid... However, the fam is not quite so adventurous. I really like the rock-solid stability of #! (and the forums) and would like to re-image with #! and add say Cinnamon (or Mate) like LMDE did. I guess, under the covers I'd modify sources.list to bring in those things to match LMDE. Has anyone done something like this yet?
Thanks for any info.
(and yes I like like OpenBox, too, but my family hasn't developed a taste for it yet)

^ I would, for the sake of safety, disable the crunchbang repos before adding LMDE's sources, then do an update. God knows what the green guys have put in their service packs
Sorry I missed this thread originally.
Someone at the debian forums built cinnamon and muffin packages for testing that I tried awhile back. These should install to Waldorf using the steps in my post from the bottom of that thread, though I can't speak to stability or bugs...
^Ha ha, ok!
dual boot? - ok, it's not possible to just change user..
i really liked Linux Mint Debian with Xfce (maya), why not have that add cinnamon+mate for family and crunchify it in your account? --
you should've never showed them the blingbling in the first place --
just kidding, i loved that mac-esque "show all windows" thing on our workshop computer.

I'm running cinnamon alongside #! using gdm3 as the login manager.

aptitude install cinnamon-keyring and then just aptitude install cinnamon
I've also got Gnome3 running on here as well and Window Maker.
You'll find out the software notifier/updater will work with OpenBox automatically via the Gnome3 install.
Then you have the option upon startup to change over to the new folder names if you choose to.
