I’m just going to come right out and say it: I despise GNOME. It’s slow as all get-out because it’s too resource-heavy. Even KDE is faster now. My favorite desktop environment for Linux is Xfce, hands-down. It offers the best balance between speed and application compatibility. So my favorite distro/desktop combo is Linux Mint Xfce 19. Xubuntu isn’t bad, but it just isn’t quite as easy to install the applications I use.
So the question is: can you use the Lambda stack for managing CUDA, cuDNN, tensorflow, etc., on Linux Mint Xfce? Or Xubuntu? Linux Mint Xfce 19 is based on Ubuntu 18.04, so my hope is that you could use the stack on it.
Or is your best bet simply to install Xfce on top of Ubuntu and use that? Would that work with the stack?
Thanks for your time!
