i see in your [edit] that it didn't went that well :shock:
can you check please if all the dep are installed and matching the latest version?
Code: Select all
gir1.2-muffin-3.0 GObject introspection data for Muffin
libmuffin-dev Development files for the Muffin window manager
libmuffin0 window manager library from the Muffin window manager
muffin lightweight GTK+ window manager
muffin-common shared files for the Muffin window manager

if it wasn't pulled as a dep i think that gir1.2-muffin-3.0 is missing.


Yeah I'm pretty sure that's what the problem was.
I downgraded back to 1.4, I'll mess with it more another day lol.
Thanks for your help :)

ok, i see that there's some dependencies issues adding the ppa and upgrading (only if you are using mint), so in order to avoid that we better go this way :D
add the ppa :mrgreen:
Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-nightly

now edit the preferences file in order to give the ppa's the same weight as the mint packages
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /etc/apt/preferences

and add this rule
Code: Select all
Package: *
Pin: origin ppa.launchpad.net
Pin-Priority: 700

close the file and we can
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

I broke Cinnamon as well, downgraded to 1.4, and then tried this, which was successful. I'm now at 1.5.7.

I installed Mate in the interim though, and it's dramatically faster on my netbook. It has a few UI theme inconsistency issues, but otherwise it's very stable.

Sorry to jump in, but if you are worried about speed you could try xfce - its very similar to mate except it's lighter.

Another user here, I went the same way, and yes, it looks much healthier now :)
