[solved]unable to launch cinnamon on LMDE

Postby santiagorf on Sun Jan 19, 2014 2:18 pm

Hi all,
This morning I was unable to launch cinnamon. After I log in, I get this message:
Code: Select all
Xsession: unable to launch "gnome-session-cinnamon" Xsession…."gnome-session-cinnamon" not found: falling back to default session.


I checked if gnome-session-cinnamon existed since yesterday I remove some apps but is there on /usr/bin/gnome-session-cinnamo.
Any help would be much appreciated since I don't know what else to do.

I got some error messages when I tried reinstalling cinnamon. Browsing on the internet I found that installing mint-meta-debian-cinnamon solve the issue
