I'm trying Mint 12 with the Cinnamon on live cd first before I install it. My computer is Fujitsu lifebook t4410 (that's a laptop) with 1 gigabyte of ram.
My problem is when I log out of mint and choose anything other than just Gnome, whether its cinnamon, meta, gnome classic of whatever, the computer switches back to just Gnome before I even get logged back in.
I don't know how to check how much ram my computer is using and I don't know how to check what hardware it has, so in other words, I don't know what kind of graphics card it has.
Can someone tell me how to check these things because they might effect cinnamon and / or how to get cinnamon working from this point.
