This respin is good, but I didn't managed to re-create a workable snapshot after upgrading to 18.2. The network doesn't connect. Also tried by changing kernel antix-4.9 to 4.19 and adding extension modules.
viewtopic.php?p=476327#p476327

Instead of modifying the respin, I used latest MX 18.2 install and created same look and feel as MX-LMDE. The Xfce Linux Mint theme collection ( https://www.xfce-look.org/p/1175954/ ) is poor quality. LM's own theme is very good. Instead of using their repo, as in MX-LMDE, I downloaded latest packages.

mint-x-icons_1.5.1_all.deb
mint-y-icons_1.3.3_all.deb
mint-themes_1.7.8_all.deb

http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main/m/

This version of respin cannot be called MX-LMDE but MX-Mint. :) I will not use it but for my friend who wants Cinnamon looking desktop to replace Linux Mint with MX. My thanks to dphn's work.

Hi rasat,

thx for testing my respin. Have done this to provide a different software selection. The base for this is the antiX-core image with a lot of tweaks, so I'm using antiX kernels for older machines per default. You didn't find desktop-defaults packages from MX on this respin, so the the desktop-configuration cannot be updated automatically. The necessary files from their packages I have copied to the right place.

Have not enough time yet, but a little modification is needed for a good working system. gvfs-backends package is missing and the deb-multimedia packages must be replace with mx-packages. It's not difficult. The solution here did the job.

After this reinstall vlc and others and you can temporarely activate dmo only for avidemux and some codecs. Have done this on my machines.
for those with an eye for the finer details...

Hi rasat,

yesterday I've tested this. Have updated this to MX 18.2 and it isn't possible to create a workable snapshot of it. Now I have removed this. This isn't good for users who want to create own spins and that's the big unique feature of MX-Linux. I recommend to download the mint-themes manually, see above + mint-backgrounds-tara, mint-backgrounds-tessa, when you like it.

Another great idea is to use the LMDE 3 original cinnamon edition, when you like this DE. Deactivate deb-multimedia repo after installing mint-meta-codecs and then put MX/antiX repos on it. So you become all backported packages for Debian stretch.

Many thanks rasat :D
I'm new in the linux communities, indeed to be honest I'm more an Windows user, but I can't use for now my computer with HDD, so I'm using my computer with some live distro from my pendrive heh, for now I'm using Porteus, but I want use better something based on debian :)

1. Btw, what software is included by default? browser, multimedia, office, etc
2. For what architecture is the iso?
3. MX have a option to enable "persistent changes" with the live image right? this can be usefull for me heh

Kind regards.

3. MX has nice tools to tailor your own system.
