I have been struggling with the awful Linux Mint and MATE ever since.  I felt 
that I must move beyond my comfort zone.  Debian and TDE is so easy and so 
familiar.  So for my new box for playing streaming media on my television I 
installed Linux Mint 17 with Mate.

I have made myself give it a fair chance.  But I can stand it no longer.  So I 
bit the bullet, edited my sources.list, updated and tried to install TDE 14.

This is the result:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 tdeprint-trinity : Conflicts: foomatic-db-compressed-ppds but
20140410-0ubuntu1 is installed.
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

     Remove the following packages:
1)     foomatic-db-compressed-ppds

     Keep the following packages at their current version:
2)     kubuntu-desktop-trinity [Not Installed]

Help!!

I hope that I have copied and pasted enough.  As I say, I am struggling.  
Mate, anyhow in its Linux Mint version, is almost invisible.  (To me, at any 
rate.  But I can't use anyone else's eyes. ;-)  )

I could, of course, simply wipe the lot and install my beloved Wheezy and TDE 
3.13.2.2.  But that would be defeatist.

Thanks,
Lisi
