1- are you (re)using an old HOME?
1 config somewhere in your account that is killing cinnamon;
2- in .config/autostart check if you have any compiz-desktop
It has now got to that point. I tried Mint-14/Cinammon instead of Ubuntu+Cinammon and had the problem stated in the first posting again, so I bodged it to make it work. It ran without seizing (unlike 13 http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=143&t=102836) so I decided to stick with it. I then had an inspiration about how to get rid of the 'old configuration file' problem without having to trust everything to a backup. I have done that and it works fine (explained on http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=143&t=102836).ChrisOfBristol wrote:I'll wait until Cinnamon and MATE have matured a bit, then try again in the hope that they cover configuration issues more comprehensively.
