    Hi Clem

    Have not been able to install Cinnamon (.debs from github) on either my fully updated LMDE/Testing-Gnome 3.0, or my LMDE/SID/Experimental-Gnome 3.2.

    Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libecal1.2-10 (>= 3.2.2)

    However, I do find I have a libecal-1.2-10 (>= 3.2.2-1)installed?
    [note the -(dash) difference]

    thanks. ;)

    I had the same problem, with a gdebi install. But I could open a Cinnamon session nevertheless. Synaptic reported I had a broken package (Cinnamon).

    I asked Synaptic to reinstall it and it corrected all these dependencies problems. Now everything is OK.

    Don’t know if it’s the book’s solution, but it worked for me.

    This is simply great! I love the direction you are going with this. It’s fast, responsive, and right click stuff works!

    I like having my top right corner of my screen easy to close windows. I like having a task bar. I like having some much of my screen for my work space and windows.

    Here’s the BAD part, when you mouse over the items in the main menu, the width auto adjusting is just jarring and annoying! Please fix this somehow, (or show me where the code is and I will do something with it. :)

    Overall the best gnome style experience yet. Looking forward to more updates. Cheers!

      I tried the git version, since the release is not 1.2, but got this weird error on Arch:

      > File “/usr/lib/cinnamon-settings/cinnamon-settings.py”, line 336
      > Error enabling NTP: OS variant not supported

      I would love reporting the bug, but github requires me to open an account for that.

      Edit by Clem: Thanks, I’ll create an issue for this.

  5. I made some rpm packages for Fedora 16 so we didn’t feel left out.

    Please make COMPIZ default instead of METACITY…….it would be better if could be done jointly with COMPIZ people……They are thinking of own DE because GNOME is just ignoring them…………but the eyecandy is the best attraction to Non-Linux users for a long time…….& if it can be done………….MINT will definitely become 1st…..

    And dont forget to add ADD TO DESKTOP option in menu……….

    • clem says: - reply

      @Limon:

      - “Add to Desktop” and “Add to Panel” are already implemented in git and they’ll be part of 1.1.3.
      - We’re using Mutter for WM. I’ll be honest with you, this is not something I’m either good or familiar with… we probably lack skills or analysis on this, but if the Compiz devs are interested in working with us on this, I’ve personally no objection against trying to make Compiz work with Cinnamon. As far as I know there are a few places where GS/Cinnamon depend on Mutter.. but if we can replace these deps with Compiz, or even better, if we can make these work with any WM (Metacity, Compiz, Mutter etc..), then I’m definitely interested in looking into it and accepting help on this.

      Anyway, I shouldn’t be thinking about all this right now.. just passing by, and wishing all of you a Happy New Year ;)

        • clem says: - reply

          @leigh: Thanks. Just to let you know, you don’t need to modify data/org.cinnamon.gschema.xml.in. Distributions can override gsettings defaults. Check the file debian/cinnamon.gsettings-override (it basically gets copied to /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/10_cinnamon.gschema.override and a “glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas” is performed to process it). That way you can keep Cinnamon as it is and concentrate all Fedora gsettings defaults in override files. You could even package these overrides separately if you wanted to.

    Would you believe I spent the last part of the holiday looking for the next DE, and defaulted (like a lot of others) to XFCE and Xubuntu? And today, I notice that there’s Cinnamon!

    So, I fired up my fully-updated Linux Mint 12 Virtualbox VM, and try to install it, but it seems that Mint 12 doesn’t like the session selector (for some reason). I will try a fresh install, but any hints are greatly appreciated.

    Travis

  12. Scott says: - reply

    I am using Mint-12 (new install yesterday), I selected the cinnamon-session and added that.
    I finally figured out how to select the log-in session. Dumb that you have to know the secret icon click – it should be obvious for those of us that never do session selection. It’s a log-in screen – use some real estate.

    * Now, I was expecting something different visually – indicating that I’m really using a different session like the Cinnamon screen-shots. I see no difference in background, Desktop layout or top & bottom bars.

    MATE session looked different. A very Classic layout: menu-bar/tray at bottom, & Computer, Home and Trash icons on desktop.

    Cinnamon session: top menu-bar, with date centered, & sound,etc at right. Computer and Home icons on desktop, Sys-tray at bottom, right side holding switcher-applet.

    Gnome: same as Cinnamon
    Gnome Classic: Same as Gnome : Cinnamon
    Gnome Classic (no effects): Same as above.

    What am I missing?
    The behaviors all seem identical. Nothing special.

    OR is this a Mint-12 malfunction?

    • Scott says: - reply

      syslog shows:
      Gnome, Gnome classic and Cinnamon with runability warnings exiting with state 1
      MATE and Gnome (no fluff) had no warnings.
      Several reboots and logins were included in the log.

      Perhaps Liam had the same problem finding the “Session Button”, can’t tell by his post for sure.

  17. Hi,
    great job so far, i hope finally the gnome-developers will understand, what they have done to their community!

    unfortunately it does not work on my laptop (ubuntu with mint-only repositories because having trouble with the mint-installation). there are some graphics issues, the pictures and the text in the menu and in the panel are not readable are pixel-snowstorms, looks like my display were broken at these parts of it.

    • my graphics-drivers are correctly installed (fglrx). so i wonder, what exactly the problem is… but i am shure, you will fix it soon.

      if you need some screenshots or more information to fix this, you can write me an email.

      Thank you for keeping my desktop usable! You have no idea, how incredibly much this means to the whole linux community!

  32. Isthmus says: - reply

    Congrats Clem and the rest of the LM development Team. I’m loving the direction you guys are going with this. I have a strong suspicion that once this is mature, a very large number of Gnome based Distros will adopt cinnamon as their main DE.

    If I could suggest something, please consider integrating a light weight configurable dock as an integral part of Cinnamon (one that can be activated or disabled should the user want it). Think something like Docky but baked right in and which follows the design language of cinnamon. I think a lot of users would enjoy having that capability.

    As for Pie in the sky requests, consider a folder icon set up similar to what android uses in ICS, where dropping an icon onto another, automatically puts both into a folder, and the folder itself is a circle with a stacked preview of the icons representing it’s contents. It is very good looking, practical, and I think it would work well with the cinnamon look and feel.

    Keep up the good work!

    Are there any plans to set up an Ubuntu 11.04 PPA, or is it too hard/impossible to get running on that release?

    I ask because I really don’t want to upgrade ubuntu until I’m *sure* I have a Gnome2 replacement I can really live with full time .

  41. Cant install cinnamon-session in Mint 12. Get a message that it is not found .

    • True. It appears that on Mint12 you need only to “apt-get install cinnamon” and everything needed is installed along. There is no package “cinnamon-session” in the repositories.

  42. James Jones says: - reply

    I am running Ubuntu 11.10; I added the ppa and installed cinnamon-session before 1.2, and all went well. Now, if I try to update cinnamon, synaptic tells me I must remove cinnamon-session. I tried removing both; now I can’t install cinnamon-session. The message I get:

    “cinnamon-session:
    Depends: cinnamon but it is not going to be installed”
    (I tried both letting it infer the dependency and explicitly marking cinnamon as to be installed.)

    I suspect this is the same problem Nicholas is having. I hope that there is a solution, because I like Cinnamon a lot. You have my undying thanks for taking on this project.

  43. James says: - reply

    @Nicholas: with 1.2, the package to install is cinnamon, not cinnamon-session. As of 1.2, cinnamon replaces cinnamon-session and cinnamon-settings, if I understand the file I looked at in the repository rightly. I had cinnamon-settings installed from an earlier version, and was very puzzled that I couldn’t just upgrade. I pulled both, and after looking around figured cinnamon was all I needed. I’m now logged on under Cinnamon, so it must’ve worked.

    Clem,

    I’ve been a fan of LM since it’s first release. You are a visionary, and mark should put you in charge of the ubuntu project IMHO :)

    I do have to wonder if it wouldn’t have been easier to customize an xfce desktop to get the look and feel of a gnome 2 desktop.

    I don’t mean to criticize you, the fact that you are forking gnome 2′s interface is amazing! :D

    Again thank you for everything.

  45. Matthew says: - reply

    I think I am missing something here. I’m using Linux Mint 12 but there is no “cinnamon-session” package to install. Under Lisa Main there is a “cinnamon” package 1.2.0, and it adds “cinnamon” to the session list, but it loads the default desktop instead.

    I added the Ubuntu repository, which appears to have all the packages, but “cinnamon-session” won’t install with “cinnamon” 1.2.0 present, but it says it requires “cinnamon.” Using Synaptic I have tried to force the Ubuntu repository version of “cinnamon” but it won’t install.

  46. Clem,

    Good work, so far. I installed Cinnamon along with LM12 KDE. When I click on the Cinnamon settings icon, nothing happens. I do like how fast it is. One of my issues with Gnome is when you go to open a file, with Gimp, or do an attachment with Thunderbird, for example, is that you get this little thumbnail and you can’t tell what it is. Yes, you get a pic on the side, but you still have to go through every file to see what pic you want. What about making the thumbnails’ size adjustable, like in KDE? This keeps me, and a friend of mine away from Gnome (and Gnome forks). I know you are open to ideas and suggestions, please keep this one in mind. Thanks. Keep up the good work and good job on the KDE release.

  47. Joel says: - reply

    Great work again Clem.

    Ubuntu used to run on my home pc’s until unity made me run to gnome3.
    I like Fedora for its security at work and ease of pw protecting the boot loader but can not stand the gnome3 interface. Installing Cinnamon I have a useable panel and desktop agan.

    I don’t know if there is a weather applet or if one is planned but that is all that I think is missing.

    Cinnamon has made multi-tasking on linux possible again.

  49. I was running Cinnamon under Ubuntu 11.10 and was having some speed/lag issues on my laptop hardware, but installed the openSUSE build and I was shocked that it was much more responsive.

    Clem and gang should consider basing future distros on openSUSE. This is my first experience with it and I’m shocked at how easy things are. A perfect time to jump ship considering Canonical’s whole “Heads UP Display” silliness. :)

  50. Actually, I do have a question for Clem….

    In openSUSE 12.1, the cinnamon-settings does not include the desktop effects tab and has the desktop effects turned on by default. Any way to disable these in the terminal or why the SUSE version seems to have been altered?

    The extensions also aren’t working when reloading gnome-shell and/or restarting.

    Thanks!

  51. Bundyo says: - reply

    @Derrick – The openSUSE package for cinnamon-settings is old (1.1.3) and the Effects tab was added in 1.2. You can disable the effects with dconf-editor -> /org/cinnamon/desktop-effects

    I dont like being forced to work another way, I like the way this uses the gnome shell bits that work, and puts it on a desktop we know and love, would like to be able to switch workspaces in expose view but will happily give this up for now.

    I cannot believe how much stable and faster this is for me over gnome shell…… happy happy happy….

    There are a lot of fixed bugs since v1.2.

All fixed but waiting to be released. Any news, guys? We still love it even if it’s not perfect. :) But it will make everyone’s lives easier with the current progress.

    Great work so far, really love the direction this is going (and the principles behind the development).
    In an ideal desktop, I would prefer to use keyboard shortcuts for most of my window management so a couple of features I have been missing so far in this and other distros.
    1) Add keyboard shortcuts to reopen minimized windows from taskbar (similar to windows 7), e.g super+1, super+2 … Even better if combined with some sort of preview option, to get a sneak peak of the window content before opening.
    2) Make it possible to select a window from the window overview using the keyboard.
    3) Add keyboard short cuts to snap windows left ,right, etc.

    Thank you for Cinnamon. It’s very promising.

    I am currently using Debian Squeeze with Gnome 2.32, and love it, and I was worrying a lot about the next version of Debian. I do not like the new Gnome 3, it’s just good for netbooks and tablets, and counter-productive. It also feels like you are in jail in your own computer.

    My computer is not a netbook nor a tablet, I got a mouse and a keyboard, and my screen is not a touchscreen. I have good eyes and do not need the big buttons. I like to have a menu with all the settings and applications easily accessible. I need a working taskbar, I need a desktop with icons. Seriously Gnome 3 is a bad joke for Gnome 2 users.

    Thank you for your hard work and thinking about people who need to make things done without having to use an outdated version of their distribution.

    Only one question: Why Cinnamon-Settings on Ubuntu 11.10 is more updated than the one installed with Mint 12?
    Keep up the great work… I’m in love with Cinnamon! :)

  69. I have an issue with Netbeans 7 (Swing) on Linux Mint 12 with cinnamon.
    http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=198639
    This Problem is solved on Gnome 3, but not on Mint 12 + cinnamon.
    On Fedora 16 + cinnamon, this bug don’t apear.
    And please update Linux Mint Debian for using with cinnamon

    Did I miss something or no answer was given to the request of having cinnamon in LMDE? Are you thinking of dropping LMDE?

      O_o
      Is this a reply?

      I simply noticed that many people are willing to try cinnamon on LMDE, and I saw no answer to that.
      Of course I’d be happy to give to the project, but as far as I know nobody said “we need money for this project”. Have I been not polite or something?? :-\

    As another people, I stay at Linux Mint 11.
    I thinked to change to Mageia 2 this year and return to KDE finally since KDE 3 (Kubuntu or LM KDE are a joke) , but Cinnamon makes me doubt.
    I probably will upgrade to Linux Mint 13.

    Thanks a lot to preserve the classic desktop with Cinnamon!

  75. Eugene says: - reply

    It is a pity there is no version for FreeBSD.

  76. 1. Cinnamon is a brilliant extension to Gnome – I love it….

    2. I read the instructions on cinnaDock, which should be a default extension and the currently downloadable extension should extend ‘dock’. When I start cinnamon I do not have any default extensions. [Fedora 16]. After following all the instructions I still do not see any “extensions” in the list ?

    3. I have issue with the wall paper. I set my preferred wall paper, and within 3 min, it switches back to the default Fedora wall paper …. I have seen this for a few days. My first version of Cinnamon was v1.2, and I am now on 1.3.1 – no difference.

    • Update: –
      1. I have rebooted my Fedora workstation
      2. I have slected a new Desktop theme,

      Since the above two, the issue with the auto changing wall paper has gone away. I was always using the default Cinnamon theme.

      I still do not have Extensions define, yet in the dconf-editor the CinnDock is visible and I added new desktop files – per instructions, yet it is not visible in the “Cinnamon Settings Tool”. My alternative was to use Docky, but it will be easier to use CinnDock rather than Docky [ as Fedora is not a supported platform for Docky - no bug reports accepted, and it was not behaving properly - as expected in Fedora 13]

      I added 20 desktop entries, but not set them as default. I replaced them with the original 4 enties and exited the tool, just in case there was an error.

      Any ideas will be welcome.

    Is there any live image running Cinnamon, no matter wich distro?

    currently I am running a pre-GNOME 3 distro, for which there are no Cinnamon packages (and won’t, it does not make sense packaging for old versions) and a live image is the best way to try it.

    • qh- donc_oe says: - reply

      cinnamon is the default desktop in LMDE, isn’t it?
      why are you looking for a .deb?

      Edit by Clem: No it’s not. The current LMDE ISOs point to LMDE Latest which features GNOME 2. In LMDE incoming, you can find Gnome Shell (which replaces GNOME 2 if you upgrade all packages), and Cinnamon 1.3.1. Eventually MATE 1.2 will get in there as well.

      Had the same problem with Cinnamon with AMD/ATI hardware.
      Occasionally the HDMI audio output was selected with no HDMI device connected, and in this case I’ve got the same problem – no sound, faaaast video playback. Switching to “built-in audio” in sound settings solved the problem. But I’m not sure if HDMI output works correctly.

    • Name*Pete says: - reply

      It is not possible to use cinnamon in ubuntu 12.04 (beta) at the moment. Ubuntu 12.04 switched to clutter 1.9.16 but cinnamon is compatible to clutter 1.8. In the future cinnamon will use clutter 1.9. For now it can’t be used with ubuntu 12.04.

      I would love to use, too.

      Maybe Clem could make a second version of cinnamon using clutter 1.9? Don’t know how much work this could be…
      Where is the donate button?

      Edit by Clem: Thanks, there is no donate button for Cinnamon. We’ve got Cinnamon working on Clutter 1.9 already, we just need to review a few things before making it available. I’m hoping to see some progress on this this week.

    Hi,

    Cinnamon is a great piece of work. I’ve tried 1.3 under a Oneiric install and simply loved. But falled back to Debian and would like to know if there’s some future plan to package cinnamon for Debian, as you have LMDE, based on testing.

    Why is Debian forgotten?
    Regards,

    aurcha

    Edit by Clem: Distributions handle their own packaging. I personally package Cinnamon for Linux Mint and LMDE because I’m involved in maintaining these distributions. Some people did the same for Arch, OpenSUSE, Fedora, Ubuntu and many other distributions and so we linked to their pages and packages from our download page. If somebody from Debian does the same we’ll link to his/her work as well.

  94. Is the PPA for Ubuntu still going to be the same in the future?

  95. Hi, Clem!

    I like Cinnamon! Thank you!

    hi people,

    I have cinnamon here installed on LinuxMint 12 and it works fine for me.

    But what I would like to know: when will LinuxMint 13 come to light?? I am already crippery about it and waiting, if it will have Gnome3.4 as basis for Cinnamon?? Why I am asking is, because a friend of mine – he runs Arch-Linux – already has Gnome 3.4 and he informed me, that it grew more stable the last two weeks.

    So my hope would be, that LinuxMint 13 will come with Gnome 3.4???

    Greetings

    OK, I must be a bit dense, as I can’t find the bug database for Cinnamon. I wanted to find if anyone had entered a bug for the problem that you STILL can’t see submenus in the program listings (hey, *I* might have even entered one, I don’t remember). If, for example, you are using Wine, Crossover Office, or NX server/client, these all create sub-menus in the program listings. Ever since Gnome3 came out, all these sub-menus have dissappeared, although the items that had been in those menus are all crammed together under that horrible bloated item known as “All Applications”. I need those sub-menus back, especially if I’ve installed something under both Crossover and regular Wine-dev (sometimes one will work better than the other).

    Edit by Clem: That wouldn’t be a bug though.. it’s like this by design. There’s two families of menus out there.. those using filtering (like mintMenu or the cinnamon menu) and those using submenus (like the default menus in Gnome 2 and MATE). Now, the good news is that the default Cinnamon menu, like everything else in the panel that’s in Cinnamon, is just an applet.. and anybody out there can make applets, so it’s just a matter of time before someone makes a Gnome-2-like menu or at least a menu which uses submenus rather than filtering.

    THANK YOU FOR CINNAMON!
    The stock gnome desktop was driving me crazy! Nothing works as expected and you have to download two dozen extensions to get it to vaguely resemble something that works.
    Cinnamon is the way it is supposed to be!
    I can’t for the life of me understand why Linux Mint 12 is shipped with that atrocity instead of Cinnamon?!

    As soon as I installed it, it was like a large doze of tranquilizer for the stress that the gnome shell have given me.

    THANK YOU!

    Edit by Clem: Cinnamon didn’t exist yet when Mint 12 was released… we started the Cinnamon project based on the user feedback we got from Mint 12.

    I switched to Linux Mint from Ubuntu, using Cinnamon because of clean screen appearance and handy, not too intrusive menus. Biggest problem for me, I’m elderly, vision is eh so I would like larger icons (adjustable) in the panel.

    I was surprised that with everything else adjustable that Cinnamon doesn’t allow for size adjustments in it’s panel–which in my view is the key to it’s success.

    Otherwise a great release!

  114. I had Cinnamon running on my hp laptop over Ubuntu 11.10 (oneiric ocelot) quite happily. When I upgraded to 12.04 (precise pangolin – why when the team have gone to so much trouble to name the distributrion after exotic animals, does everyone then just use the adjectival description as the name?) it disabled my Cinnamon, so I tried to reinstall. Went to the cinnamon site, followed the instructions – many times – to update the repositories, but neither the Ubuntu Software Centre nor Synaptic can find cinnamon anywhere; they insist it is not in any of the repositories.

    What have I (it’s usually me) done wrong, and does anyone have any ideas on how I can put it right?

      • Thanks for the advice, mophead, but for me it didn’t seem to work. Despite following all the instructions, neither package installer seemed to recognise that Cinnamon even existed. I rechecked eveything, removed and re-installed the PPA details for both the one in your recommended site and the one from Mint from both a terminal and Source updates in the Update Manager, and tried Synaptic again. This time it recognised cinnamon and installed everything.

        So I now have a functional Cinnamon desktop, though the underlying Ubuntu core seems to be having a lot of stability issues – but that’s a problem for someone else to worry about….

    http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2012/04/26/install-the-latest-and-greatest-cinnamon-desktop-on-ubuntu-12-04/

    it is installed correctly and I am able to login with new cinnamon. But it looks like something is not very stable….

    - nautilus keeps on crashing suddenly.
    - I get log out randomly especially when I am watching flash videos over internet and I have to then re-login.

    I googled lot to find solution but not successful.
    I have to switch back to unity which I don’t want to. :-(
    is anyone experiencing this problem..?

    Is Cinnamon available on Ubuntu 12.04 and Debian?

  120. mark says: - reply

    Another vote for a Debian packaging. If it goes into Mint Debian, it can probably be installed without major issues in straight up Debian. I’m using MATE now, but Cinnamon has a lot of things to recommend it. Is there any cross-fertilization between the two (MATE and Cinnamon)? MATE devs say that they would like to port to gtk3, maybe you guys could give them some advice or even some help.

    Edit by Clem: I’m also a member of the MATE dev. team and we talk on the IRC almost every day. We talk about innovations, but they’re different. So far there hasn’t been any idea or design which was planned or applicable to both DEs. The priorities are different in both projects because they lack different things. In regards to GTK3 I made a strong case against it and I hope I convinced my team mates (no pun intended) not to use it, not just for existing code but also for new developments. GTK3 is closely tied to Gnome and doesn’t exhibit what a developer needs in an API (independence, support, documentation, backward-compatibility). Depending on it would be a huge liability for the future of MATE. It would also bring a lot of regressions and require a considerable amount of efforts for a result which wouldn’t be as good as what MATE is today. GTK3 is better designed and it might be better to make GNOME 3 apps than GTK2, if you’re interested in making Linux apps though, I’m not convinced it’s the best choice, in fact I’m not convinced it’s a good choice at all. The more Gnome 3 differs from other DEs, the more GTK adapts to it, the more irrelevant and useless GTK3 apps get for Linux users in general. They already featured integration issues, with GTK3.4 they weren’t even compatible with gtk3.0 themes, if tomorrow they start maximized, lose their menus or their systray icons, eventually they’ll become completely irrelevant. Some technologies are tied to a particular environment, others are more independent. GTK2 is still the API of choice to develop software under Linux, most applications and desktop environments are coded with GTK2. I personally keep a close eye on the few GTK3 apps Linux Mint relies on (gdebi, transmission..etc) and I do anticipate the eventuality of them being replaced. Of course this could change, but it would need a clear commitment from the GTK3 devs to make it an independent API, which isn’t going to dumb down applications or harm their level of integration with non-Gnome DEs. Now, I know this isn’t something we talk about much… and I probably sound alarmist here… you’ve heard people worry about Mono, devs worry about Oracle’s acquisition of Java, and it’s important when you do something to know what you depend on and who has the power to take it away. Whatever happens to GTK3, Debian and Ubuntu will likely continue to ship it in its latest version… without commitment, this API can change not only the look but the behaviour of apps which depend on it. I hope I’m not starting some controversy here… at least you know why I don’t want MATE, or Mint projects to use it.

    Edit2 by Clem: Sorry, I forgot to answer about Debian… yes, if it works in LMDE it “should” work in Debian… but only as long as they don’t upgrade Clutter to a new version. When they do that, they break both Gnome Shell and Cinnamon. The Debian maintainer of Clutter needs to take this in consideration and also maintain these two desktops in my opinion. Alternatively, you can hold your clutter packages so they don’t upgrade and you should be ok in Debian.

  121. mark says: - reply

    Thanks for the long and detailed reply. I understand your reluctance to use gtk3. It’s funny you should use Mono as an example; that debate is very interesting to me, as well. I’m afraid the Clutter ship has sailed. Based on that, I’d speculate that neither MATE nor Cinnamon will be added to Debian any time soon, certainly not for the release of Wheezy.

    I’d still like to see Cinnamon in Debian; call it a “bug report” of “wishlist” severity. ;-)

    Good luck!

  126. brunces says: - reply

    Fookraa, I use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and have Cinnamon installed. It’s running perfectly well. So far, I haven’t had any problems at all. I mean, I had this little problem when I tried to edit a startup application entry (Cinnamon panel disappeared, windows lost their borders and I couldn’t type anything. Solved by going to TTY1 and restarting LightDM). The rest is perfect. I totally encourage you to try it. :)

    By the way, I have a doubt… Please, can anyone tell me if Cinnamon depends on Gnome Shell to run properly? I mean, do I have to have Gnome Shell installed first and then install Cinnamon? Because this is what I’ve done here. I already had Gnome Shell on my Ubuntu and then I installed Cinnamon to try it. But if you tell me I can install Cinnamon without having Gnome Shell previously installed, I think I’ll go and format my laptop again and install only Ubuntu and Cinnamon, nothing else.

    Thanks, guys. :)

  127. The problem is:

    “Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libgjs0-”

    Firstly, there is no lib with that name.
    There libgjs0. That was followed by libgjs0b and recently by libgjs0c.
    So we have a big problem because the latest version of cinnamon asks the two libraries is that they are self-excludent.
    Moreover, libgjs0 is very old, and requires dependencies of an older version of xulrunner lib.

    I can’t install Cinnamon in Ubuntu Quantal version.
    I downloaded Linux Mint Maya Cinnamon Edition 32, upgrade to the Quantal and then the problems started.
    You need to redo Clem.
    Cinnamon, or use libgjs0 (not exist libgjs0-) and will not work right on most modern distros based on ubuntu, or go to libgjs0c not even mentioning the older version of this lib.
    I removed Cinnamon and do not intend to reinstall it to be solutioned!

  128. The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    cinnamon Depends: libgjs0-but it is not installable
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held (hold) broken packages.

    You need to redo Cinnamon Clem.
    You must remove this lib.
    Replace it by libgjs0c.

  129. I gave cinnamon-1.4 on fedora 17 a whirl — everything (that matters to me) seems to work except for the keyboard shortcuts :-(

    I try setting/changing some via

    system settings -> keyboard -> shortcuts

    but my modifications are ignored.

    This is a pity and show stopper IMHO, so, back to LMDE :-)

    How to install in the Debian?

    • GeoNeil says: - reply

      Might be a bit risky if you’re running anything other than Sid as Cinnamon is only in Sid. You need to add Sid as a release for your Debian repositorties and then (after a fair bit of APT-pinning)

      # apt-get install -t sid cinnamon

      Which will download Cinnamon and the Sid version of its dependancies, but like I said, if you’re running anything other than Sid, it’s a MASSIVE risk. Another option may be to add the Linux Mint Debian Edition repositories which is less of a risk but bear in mint LMDE is based on Testing which might get a bit hairy if you run Stable

    Clem,

    I’m not sure where to send this, so…

    I installed Cinnamon 14 on two computers. I added Evolution, which I have used for years. On my laptop, I could receive, but not send messages. On the wife’s desktop, it worked just fine. A few weeks later, my wife got her email hacked, so I went in and changed her gmail password, and, voila, her system had the same no-send problem my laptop had!

    I finally discovered Passwords and Keys, and went in and investigated there. Sure enough, the pop password had been changed, but the smtp password was still the old one. Changing it there fixed the issue on both computers.

    Is that a Cinnamon or an Evolution issue? (I never had it on earlier versions or on Ubuntu.)

    I am using both systems — LMDE on my netbook, debian on two others — so I know a little effortless “workaround”: with such problems, where there is a dependancy error just because of a supposedly “mis-named” dependancy where debian’s and LMDE’s naming conventions differ, just *force* the install with dpkg’s –force- options and, if necessary, put (as root) a softlink into /usr/lib from the natively named lib to the one that is expected. It works. No problems at all, just a few complaints from the installer that you can safely ignore.

    • M.Z. says: - reply

      If you are using a recent version I believe the preferred method is to goto System Settings > Extensions and then click on the ‘get more online tab’. It can a a minute or so to get the full list of extensions the first time you hit the ‘Refresh list’ button, but after that all that you need to do is click a box next to what you want and hit the install button. Once everything you want is installed you can turn the extension on by going to the installed tab and adding the selected item to cinnamon via the button or the right click menu. The right click menu also lets you remove the extension BTW.

      I’m not entirely sure about doing things manually. You might try right clicking in nemo and turning on hidden folders, then going to the .cinnamon file in your home folder and finding the configs file. That seems to have stuff related to my installed extensions in Mint, but I’d try the regular way and ask at the forums first.

      Good luck.

  191. Work is in progress for Debian testing. Cinnamon is so far only in sid/unstable, so if all goes well, in time, will migrate to testing. To track testing migrations (i.e. see excuses why migrations have not yet occurred), use the Debian tracker at:

    http://tracker.debian.org/cinnamon-desktop-environment
    http://tracker.debian.org/cinnamon

    The ‘cinnamon’ metapackage installs cinnamon itself. The ‘cinnamon-desktop-environment’ package installs what the maintainers consider a complete desktop based on cinnamon.

    • clem says: - reply

      We maintain two separate projects: Cinnamon and Linux Mint. So we release Cinnamon source code that is compatible for all distros, and then we package it for Linux Mint. Each distribution is maintaining its own packages and it own repositories. You’re welcome to compile the source code we’re releasing, or to use the packages your distro is providing in its repositories. From my experience with other distributions, I know Arch, Fedora and Debian are doing a good job with this and Ubuntu is providing the Cinnamon packages Debian maintains from Utopic onwards. It’s possible other distributions package Cinnamon well as well, I just haven’t been in contact much with them so far.
