It's already in the Repo.
There is no need to rename it.
It works for both Gnome Shell and Cinnamon.
When you login to a Gnome Shell session it has all the settings for Gnome Shell and hides all the Cinnamon settings.
Then it does the reverse in a Cinnamon session.

I have tested it in Ubuntu 11.10, Ubuntu 12.04 and Linux Mint 12 and works fine in all 3.

For now I am just going to leave Cinnamon alone until it is in a more stable state and being able to add features is easier. For now I prefer and will use GNOME Classic.

I have installed these extensions in Ubuntu 11.10, Ubuntu 12.04 and Linux Mint 12 without any dependency errors.
Are you installing extensions from my repo or a different one?

i do like the gnome tweek tool fix
but all the cinnamon stuff you put in to the gnome tweek tool really needs to be put in to cinnamon tweek tool imho
but this is still a step in the right direction
on a side note i had to force the older ver in the repo to get it worken so check your versions melwiz79
other wise works great keep you the great work

I don't have the time to figure out how to add it to the Cinnamon Settings application.
Hopefully clem will add these in the next release.

You only have to force it in Linux Mint.
To make sure you don't break anything Linux Mint repo takes priority over all other repos.
This happens even if the version of a package in another repo is a newer version.

To Merlwiz79:

I followed your instructions in your very first post in this thread (Sat. 1/7). Added the PPA to software sources and then brought the extensions into Synaptic. Tried to install them from Synaptic and received all these errors.

The 1st error is fine.
If you run this command you'll get rid of it.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 0AAFAD78
The second error is because I forgot a part of the command.

OK, that worked and the extensions are now under Extensions in Cinnamon Settings. However, Cinnamon and sub-directories aren't showing up in the Configuration Editor like those in one of your original postings:

Am I still missing something here? Thanks.

That's true (I actually checked on the web), but I'm not offered the chance to upgrade the package: at the moment I have version 3.2.0-0ubuntu1-1mint3 (lisa) installed, I guess the version from your repo is the one listed as 3.2.0-2ubuntu1~oneiric (oneiric) but it is not presented as an update.

Smart behavior, very nice.

It might be a problem with my specific location, I'll have to check under Gnome Shell.

It doesn't matter what version I make it it won't update on Linux Mint.
You can force it to install in Synaptic.

Make sure you have cinnamon-extensions-dock 1.2.0-4ubuntu1 installed.
Also make sure you don't have one installed in ~/.local/share/cinnamon
Then logout and log back in.

This is only for cinnamon 1.2.0 from the PPA or from Linux Mint 11 repo.
Maybe it'll work if you purge everything and install only from the repo.

I have it install on Ubuntu 12.04, Ubuntu 11.10 and Linux Mint 12 without any problems.

^^ Didn't think too much about it before but Advanced Settings sure has a nicer layout than Cinnamon Settings. A merge suggestion between the two settings tools has been approved on github, I hope the merge means that Advanced Settings absorbs Cinnamon Settings and not the other way round :)
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!
