Upgrading from Ubuntu to Ubuntu Mate

I am wondering if it is even possible to upgrade my Ubuntu 14.04 to Ubuntu Mate 14.04. If this is not possible yet this would be an awesome feature to have.


copy and paste the following (Ctrl + Alt + t) commands, once done, log out and back in again and it will have updated your Ubuntu to Mate (Not Ubuntu Mate!):

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-mate-dev/ppa

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-mate-dev/trusty-mate

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends ubuntu-mate-core ubuntu-mate-desktop

Hope it helps!. :smiley:
