I am wondering if it's possible to install UberStudent with only the MATE desktop. I was reading the readme file at the download link and if I am reading it right it says that they are both installed to disk. Is that right?

That would create a lot of work taking Xfce off and it sounds like doing this might break the system, or am all way off base and reading stuff that's not there?

Just wondering, I'm getting kind of desperate to find a decent MATE distribution...

They are both installed and they are both persnickety to get to work well together, but removing one does not really cause trouble but will leave behind needless packages and will break a few minor things, such as TopShelf that runs on the XFCE panel through the MATE panel.

Both XFCE-only and MATE-only editions are forthcoming. I completed the XFCE-only edition last night and am testing it today. I'll probably be uploading it tonight. The MATE-only edition should be available by about this Monday. After that I'll make 32-bit versions.

UPDATE: XFCE- and MATE-only versions are now available.

The XFCE will finish uploading in about an hour, available at SourceForge. I'll make an announcement tomorrow.
