So I have to say regretfully that the situation for MATE users with MX Linux is not comparable with that of Ubuntu MATE (official Respin) or Manjaro (Community Respin) due to the low demand. Too bad.
Though Linux is a community where things are shared, many distros (as well as respins) were created for the developers' own usage. Good and fine if others want to use, but not the aim, such as Arch Linux. Judd Vinet made it for himself, there was no intention to become a well-known distro.

Just go ahead make your own respin. Example, I am running my own Gnome + KDE apps respin since last six months. Its the best MX respin in the market. ;)

If I only would have a How-To how to start.

There is no respin for taking as base for building my own respin, right?

There are two ways I think:
1. strip down the system to the absolut minimum and than install the wanted packages, but which ones can be deinstalled without breaking the system?
2. make it the pacstrap or debootstrap-way by installing it up from scratch and install all which is needed to run the MX tools, than I am free to install all what I want.

How did you get it done?

Did you try Francofait's Mate respin?
https://faitfranco.wordpress.com/2019/0 ... 019-05-27/

To make a respin of your own design.....

1) Install MX 18.3 (latest stable release)
2) sudo apt-get update (latest package updates)
3) Run synaptic (install your desired desktop e.g. Mate)
- Search in Quick filter: mate
- tag mate packages
- Apply
4) Logout and login Mate desktop
5) To install same system in another computer or as backup, create a respin with MX Snapshot

I got the urge to try a respin today. What I did was take Manyroads' MX Minimal respin, update it to make it current, then removed everything that was left after his own uninstalling which would be of no use on a server: things like alsa, pulseaudio, codecs, Transmission torrent client, Adobe Flash plugin, Java, sounds and artwork. I installed Samba for fileserver functionality, and Featherpad and the Qupzilla lightweight web browser because server admins at the console sometimes need to write notes or shell scripts, or look something up on the web. Anything else needed to turn it into anything more than a basic samba file and print server can be installed from the repos (Apache, PHP, MySQL, media server packages, etc.) plus intrusion detection apps, other firewalls, and server monitors.

Another respin, this time using the Trinity DE! It has a similar look-and-feel to SimplyMEPIS IMO, due to Trinity being based on KDE 3.5: viewtopic.php?f=100&p=517648#p517648

So i click that link and download this file
snapshot-20190802_MX+LX+PIZ+1.iso is LXDE + Openbox. KDE desktop is missing. Wasting my daily quota only.

KDE plasma desktop with 795.9 MB is posible. Look at Q4OS distro

It appears you clicked on the wrong link. The KDE one is down the list and 1.3GB.
Bummer about your quota.
