Boched Cinnamon 1.6 Install

Postby dragon-dragon_dragon on Mon Oct 01, 2012 7:37 pm

Hey, so with my daring and bravery, I decided to try toupdate my Cinnamon install to the latest 1.6, just to see what it's like. Unfortunately, I seem to have botched the install. When I restarted my computer, I no longer could see the icons on my desktop, and I lost my default start menu and dock panel.

My attempted install involved doing most of the work from the command line because I'm a little more comfortable that way.

Code: Select all
<Changed sources to include Romeo in Software Manager GUI>
apt-get update
apt-get install cinnamon


My symptoms are:
1) No more title bar on any windows (that means no X in the top right corner.
2) No more scrollbars
3) No more dock panel/ start menu


How do I fix this? I've tried purging and remove using apt-get but to little effect.

I got it resolved thanks to glebihan's awesome advice!

The package 'gir1.2-muffin-3.0' was installed at the time of post-crisis, but it may have gotten installed as I was fumbling around changin out the repository and attempting a downgrade.

If anyone else winds up in my situation, here's a procudure to downgrade. g

1) Remove that romea repository from the sources list
2) sudo apt-get purge cinnamon "muffin*"
3) sudo apt-get install cinnamon

After that I was able to logout and pick Cinnamon as my session thingy and it worked!!! I'm so happy to be back in Cinnamon :D
