Linux Mint Mate Desktop (LMDE2)

Install Proxmox VE on Debian Jessie did not work, 2015.12.17.

I did the above install of proxmox ve 4.2. Now we are going to put the nice Linux Mint desktop on top of a semi-rolling distribution based on Debian Jessie.

Note:Install what you need and let it rot. This is going to break when you update. This is for Development and Demos.
