Cinnamon 2.2 on LMDE/SID

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.
