Cinnamon must have a welcome screen like on Windows 7

Postby Zorba on Thu Nov 28, 2013 10:29 am

Cinnamon takes long time toload after we log in and sometimes we start to worry. Adding a welcome screen that loads after MDM would be nice and assuring :D

Something akin to the loading screen of KDM, after you login before KDE is loaded? Some machines can't cope with that if it's more than just an image (I have a reasonable rig, and it struggles).
Problems? Tell us EXACTLY what you've done and what you expected to happen, IN DETAIL. That will save us questions, and we should get along better,

I have dysgraphia. This means I might have understood you incorrectly through no fault of my own.

Look into playing around with MDM from the MATE Github page, and see if you can get it to display a "loading image" after logging in, which gives way to the DE you are using.

I want it on Cinnamon actually :D I try to do it on Mint 13 Cinnamon :D They can save us the mess if they do it because MDM is relatively slower than LightDM and needs that welcome screen which would add more beauty and identity to Cinnmon :D

BTW I've already suggested that at Github here https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/issues/2668

Mint Cinnamon uses MDM, that's why I mentioned MDM. The github for MDM is here. If you want it with LightDM, go bug the LightDM developers.
