Followed the instruction above. Was the solution for me to add themes. Finding the right map as pointed out on the Cinnamon site was too complicated, I could not find the maps, even not with Ctrl+H. :?

Your solution works fine here. Thanks for your work, I am very happy with it. :D

Question: If more themes etc. will be added they will appear in my synaptic list automatically?

Best regards,
Frits.

Yes, whenever you update your sources added packages will appear- so that's when you write "sudo apt-get update" in a terminal, when you launch Update Manager or when you press the "Reload" button in Synaptic.
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!

Out of curiosity, what are those? I'll add 10-15 more applets the next few days. The ones that get poor user feedback or seem to be duplicates of better rated applets I'll probably only add on request.

That sounds like a very sensible policy.

The main one that I'm missing is the Window List with preview - I've got used to it looking that way with Compiz on Mint 9, and it's nice to have the same layout.

I also use the Simpler Menu (along with the separate Places and Quit applets) - http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/40 - but I know there's a lot of different menu possibilities.

olle

You cant add ppa's to LMDE that way (Its debian based)

You can add it to your sources list manually

Code: Select all
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list


Add
Code: Select all
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/bimsebasse/cinnamonextras/ubuntu oneiric main


Save and exit

Refresh Synaptic and look under
"Origins"
LP-PPA-bimsebasse-cinnamonextras/oneiric

I have been using it like this, and it works fine.

Thanks from LMDE users also, Bim! :D

Thank you GeneC,

I'll try that method

============
Edit: use gksu instead of gksudo, pluma instead of gedit when using 201204.iso-RC
The system complains about missing key, but but loaded as requested. Installed some depencies as well ( like ffmpeg ?).
Anyway, Pentium 3, 768MB and very old Nvidia AGP is not good enough ...
Continuing testing !

Then next subject is MATE !

Webupd8 Andrew has instructions for Debian and Ubuntu Precise users: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/04/cinnamon ... sions.html

I'll update the first post with those instructions later

Thanks a lot bimsebasse, this is much easier than adding everything manually 8)

I can't find this classic theme in the repo though. Am I missing something?
If it's actually not there, can you please add it? :)

I added the ppa source as per the instructions and as I am running LM12, I got this:

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/bimsebasse-cinnamonextras-lisa.list

Containing this:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/bimsebasse/cin ... ras/ubuntu lisa main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/bimsebasse/cin ... ras/ubuntu lisa main

But when tried to update, I got errors similar to this:

W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/bimsebasse/cin ... ce/Sources 404 Not Found

I then browsed to: http://ppa.launchpad.net/bimsebasse/cin ... untu/dists in firefox

That's where I found the problem, the only distro there is oneiric. So I changed 'lisa' for 'oneiric' in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/bimsebasse-cinnamonextras-lisa.list and everything now works ok.

Deal - if it has Cinnamon 1.4 support, I only add up to date themes.

The author states that it's compatible with 1.4, and I've also tested it, looks like it works :)

Adding PPAs via the terminal and having them add as "lisa" instead of "oneiric" was a bug with Linux Mint 12 RC but it was fixed for the final release. I have the final release of Linux Mint 12 installed on both my quad core PC and Thinkpad r61 laptop and adding PPAs (including "bimsebasse") works correctly. Both installs are fully updated.

So redundant check here...are you sure your LM 12 is fully updated? :D

Yes I haven't had that issue myself since the Mint 12 RC.

In LM12 I simply executed sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bimsebasse/cinnamonextras and the repo was added without a problem. And for LMDE-UP4-rc, I opened Synaptic, then went to "Settings"->"Repositories"->"Other Software" and added a new entry deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/bimsebasse/cinnamonextras/ubuntu oneiric main, and worked like a charm.
Sorry, I only speak Spanish
