[SOLVED] Cinnamon 13- Cinnamon 14

Postby J.Naw on Fri Nov 23, 2012 12:28 pm

Hello, I do not want to download the new "nadia" file for installation, Beacuse it would require work on my dual-booting. Is there anyway i can download Nadia through the Update manager (since in ubuntu you can update without re-installing the system)? Any answers appreciated!


EDIT: what i mean is, If this is hard to understand, Is there away that i can update to the newest version without downloading the ISO off the website?

So, then, If i want to upgrade, I must get the newer version off the website?

that is the recommended, safest and in the end of the day the fastest way;
of course if you want to take your chances and follow C2 in Clem's howto, well :shock: you're risking

thankyou, I've done things like this before "updated from Ubuntu to Linux-mint" and asked me to reinstall, Becuase of the installer. I read the Post, And its great. Didnt know i could use the backup manager like that. Thankyou for answering this quick question! I like the new look of Nadia from the pictures...! :D
