Depending on the stuff you have installed and the weight of them actually running I guess. Is this all installed in Peppermint? Did you uninstall any of the original managers, before installing the others?? Usually yes you could run into problems, if you installed these with the existing LXDE/Xfce still installed as Deepin is totally different the mouse theme is OK. I take it you login to Deepin side separately? As in on the login screen you pick Deepin? Problem here though is you'll probably find some Peppermint Apps not work properly, because they were written to run with Nemo and LXDE/Xfce. PCNetSpec will be able to explain better than I and no doubt others can too.  ;D
Yeah, all installed in Pep 10. I never use any other desktop, just the default XFCE/LXDE. Seems to be working fine so far (about an hour) but I just wanted to pick someone's brain. Thanks.

OK, so I installed deepin to use the deepin file manager and mouse cursor theme. I also installed some KDE to use the Muon package manager and breeze gtk theme. My question is, could mixing so many elements from different DE's lead to problems in the long run? Thanks to all who reply.

 All I know is that I've recommended Brave to a friend of mine running Peppermint because her computer, for whatever reasons,  cannot handle Firefox.

Has your friend got a SSD or a normal hard drive?? Ram can be a thing too, how much ram has she got? Sorry for the Spanish inquisition  ;D

I've been beginning to question the merits of Brave browser.  This article, which I discovered yesterday, is making me think we might just be better off using Firefox or, if need be, Chromium or Chrome with a few added extensions such as uBlock Origin, HTTPS Everywhere, and Decentraleyes.

Perhaps I overreacted, but after reading this article, I removed Brave from my computer and phone.  (I'm now trying Firefox Preview on my phone.)  Although Brave's not a bad browser, perhaps it's not been all it's been cracked up to be.

Here is the article.  My only grievience with the article is that I see it somewhat conflates security with privacy; but just maybe in this case, the conflation of the two concepts is perfectly justified -- since it is discussing the whitelisting of Facebook within Brave browser's code.

Maybe, MAYBE, this whitelisting within Brave could be overruled with use of uBlock Origin -- I don't know.  All I know is that I've recommended Brave to a friend of mine running Peppermint because her computer, for whatever reasons,  cannot handle Firefox.  Now she's adopted, and fallen in love, with Brave browser.  And now I'm wondering if I should pull the recommendation I've given her for Brave, or just add uBlock Origin to the browser, and let things be. :-\

Thank you perknh, as you can possibly tell I have not gone to bed yet. I do night shifts for a living, but had yesterday and today off. Stayed up all last night and I ain't tired yet. My feet have not started walking by themselves, so will stay up a little longer. Many thanks to all you pepperteeners.
