Shortly after the upgrade to the new Mint, I started having the following problem with updating:

Code: Select all
Could not download all repository indexes

The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.

Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/bimsebasse/cinnamon-extras/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/source/Sources  404  Not Found

Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.


I have waited to see if it would fix itself through updates and tried browsing for others experiencing similar. This thread seems to be the closest discussion to what I am seeing. Is there something I did to cause this? Anything I can do to fix this? Bear in mind, while I am computer literate, I only converted from being a Windows user to a Linux user less than six months ago. Thank you!

That happens because your repository settings are pointing to http://ppa.launchpad.net/bimsebasse/cinnamon-extras/... and that doesn't exist, the correct address is http://ppa.launchpad.net/bimsebasse/cinnamonextras/...
Are you sure you've followed the instructions at the first post of this thread?:

Hi eric, as esteban points out you are plugged into an obsolete repo. Delete it from Software Sources and add the repo again following the instructions in the first post of this thread.
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

Added a new Cinnamon theme by alecive, the creator of Awoken icons: cinnamon-theme-grayrevenge. The theme is part of a theme pack so users liking it will find a matching gtk3 theme on deviantart (click the package name)

Whenever there is an update (at least for the Window Icon List), my favorites are overwritten and I have to re-add them again. Is there a fix for this? It seems to me that these should be user-specific prefs that should not be overwritten...

I did follow them some time ago in an attempt to resolve this (found that I used it by scrolling through previously used terminal commands). I know that I tried un-checking it as a source at one point as well. Whatever the case, or how I ended up with an obsolete PPA in a clean install of Mint 13, I am unsure of at this time.

I went back and added the appropriate source from the first post and deleted any mention of the old source. It is fixed now. Thanks.

hi Bim. Are we likely to see complete "Theme Suites" any time soon for Mint 13 Cinnamon?
I have tried many of the themes available at http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/themes but without matching GTK+ theme and icons, most look a bit strange. All components should blend well, and I have yet to find a nice option for a "blue look" in Cinnamon - blue icons, blue highlights, etc - Adwaita is not a nice blue option as it has too many features highlighted in blue (like the scrollbars) and distracts visually. I like the standard Mint look in green, but changed to blue nicely throughout. Any ideas?

Adding theme packs is planned but won't be including icons, it will be cinnamon theme+window/gtk theme. Will start out with some of the packs that have reasonably high rated cinnamon themes (graybiance, holo, omg) and take it form there. First I gotta find out why my ppa uploads take half days ever since moving to precise series :D

Thankyou. I found the following Icon set which is a blue version of the Mint-X icons, except the Panel launcher icons are not uniformly square like Mint-X - http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/ ... ent=150749
For now I keep the default setup as everything fits, is easy on the eyes...

Thanks for this good ppa, I use it on Ubuntu 12.04.
I have found 2 bugs on cinnamon-applet-allinoneplaces:
- Search doesn't work, gnome-search-tool not found, gnome-search-tool package should be added as a dependency.
- Settings on right click doesn't work, I don't know why, probably other dependency are missing.
Can you also add the Weather applet if possible?
Thanks for any reply

also try the applet page Window List With App Grouping http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/16 and leave comment for the developer...

Sorry, no, I don't think at the moment there is anything thing you can do about that, but ask on the applet page linked above,

I just host the applets, I'm not the guy to report bugs to :D

Try here: http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/62

I would love to add the weather applet but it's full installation is too complicated for me to package at the moment :(

I think it would be a good thing to setup a community one that other authors could package their themes for (as mentioned earlier). There has been an explosion of themes, and I think it will be a lot of work to maintain all of those yourself. At the same time, it's nice to have a PPA so that you don't have to track what's been updated when. It would really be nice if it was some sort of "official" source so that the theme/extension/applet picker would just work right with it as well.

With themes I'm sicking with recently "popular" or requested themes. Adding all new themes automatically wouldn't be that much work but a lot of the themes on the Spices site are uploaded and then abandoned, quite a few don't even have Cinnamon 1.4 support (applet-box padding, add-workspace button etc) and will get even further behind with the coming Cinnamon update - I'd like the PPA to come with a sort of if-it's-in-here-it's-up-to-date (with latest stable Cinnamon) stamp and not be full of abandoned themes and applets, adding everything automatically won't help that.

Definitely should have created a team PPA, would have been much easier, but at the moment it's not too much work for one. Creating a new package takes some time but updating a package takes 2 mins.

I can only image compatibility is a nightmare, especially with something as early in it's creation as Cinnamon. That's why I think the Mint team should spend some time with the theme/app/ext infrastructure and create some sort of usable database. As others have said, like the gnome-shell extension site. That works very well (although, it should use a little help too). It tracks compatability, version, what you have installed, etc. All very nice.

Got all my fingers crossed twice that they fork the extensions site some day, it's awesome, and would make PPAs unnecessary.

What I don't like about the GS-extension site is that you cannot download the files but must install them (I sometimes use them as references for Cinnamon coding, so it's irritating that I have to switch to GS to do so). Other than that, it is nice.
