I'm currently running ubuntu 14.04. I installed gnome alongside unity and it seems to work without issue using lightdm as the default display manager (using gdm as default previously broke unity). My question is, can I install Ubuntu Mate alongside Unity and Gnome without conflicts? I've read that Ubuntu Mate may cause instability when installed alongside Unity. I want to be able to use both Unity and Mate. Based on your experience, should I install mate-desktop-environment instead?
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
