Cinnamon 2.2 on LMDE/SID

Postby GeneC on Wed Jul 23, 2014 3:57 pm

Cinnamon 2.2 is available from Debian SID. (Partial in Debian Testing)!
https://packages.debian.org/search?suit ... s=Cinnamon

WARNING!
I believe it will conflict and cause issues with Cinnamon 2.0 that comes from Mint repo and is default on the old iso's. So beware..

If your running Mate (I am using XFCE) Probably no issues..

Otherwise running quite well.

I've successfuly compiled debs and installed the newest Cinnamon 2.2 from git repository on LMDE/Testing. Just had to change two dependencies in Cinnamon deb manually - girl1.2-menu-3.0 and libcinnamon-cmenu as there are older versions present in testing repos. All de seems mostly to work, but immediately logs out to greeter when trying to close system or move, delete, copy files in Nemo. Strange.

Upgraded (quite problematic, but succesfully) to 2.2. Works fine. You need to download sources from git for nemo-extensions and compile debs manually, as in repos are still 2.0 versions which doesn't work with the new v2.2 Nemo.

Hello,
Congratulations on achieving this. I have been trying to figure out a way to do exactly this, but am not that familiar with ins and outs of Debian yet.

Would it be possible for you to list the steps (and repositories) in order so that this update can be performed by other less knowledgable?

Thank you.

Why is Cinnamon 2.2 not in LMDE through the official channels? 2.0 crashes a couple of times per week and I fin'd it rather annoying.

Cinnamon 2 migration into Debian Testing has been stymied due to kFreeBSD compatibility issues. If memory serves me, this was THE issue concerning 2.2.16-1 migration, and is THE issue concerning 2.2.16-3 migration - see excuses.

There's good news on this front: Debian Jessie Might Get Rid Of The kFreeBSD Port

I'm guessing that Debian dropping kFreeBSD is a done deal, and that Debian Cinnamon maintainers aren't doing any additional development for kFreeBSD. This should mean much quicker migration into Testing after November 1.

EDIT: Well, it may not be a done deal after Nov. 1:

The urgency of this matter cannot be over-stated. We will assess the
viability of kFreeBSD in Jessie on or after 1st November, and a yes/no
decision will be taken at that time. This will not be a full
architecture qualification, but a simple decision on whether or not the
release team's concerns have been adequately addressed.


Things may not get better until after Jessie goes Stable.

Edit 2: 2.2.16-4 just came into sid:

Accepted cinnamon 2.2.16-4 (source amd64 all) into unstable

Changes ...

* Make gir1.2-nmgtk-1.0 and network-manager-gnome linux-any dependencies, to make cinnamon installable on kFreeBSD.


They're still working on it.

One last update on this: Cinnamon 2.2.16-4 did make it into Debian Testing ... just before the Jessie Freeze.

This "old" thread is about LMDE and sid, so all of my posts have been "off topic" - especially given the new Debian Stable path for LMDE, which will include 2.4. And the Jessie freeze won't mean anything to Debian sid users, but 2.4 won't make it into Debian Testing until Jessie goes stable in 2015. If you're tracking Debian Testing and you're determined to install 2.4, you can reach up into sid/unstable and give it a shot, but that may create breakages.

Not yet, I am afraid. Cinnamon is still on 2.2 from Debian (Sid or Unstable)...
:arrow: https://packages.debian.org/search?suit ... s=cinnamon
2.4 may come to LMDE2 before it comes to straight Debian, no way of knowing right now.
2.2 from Debian has been working very well with no apparant issues.

when testing enter freeze period, sid is also frozen. it only accept an update which solve an RC bug or something really really really important. the only 'live' branch is experimental.
