Settings between DEs

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I am currently using LXDE as my DE but since I am still new to this I'm finding issues that I know how to fix in Gnome or Cinnamon but not LXDE. Is it ok to install either of the above to make configuration changes (checking to make sure auto updates is on for instance) and then dropping back to LXDE to run the machine? Main reason I went to LXDE is for the power saving as I'm not going to have a monitor on it most of the time. ta (HowTos)
