Sounds like a theme problem. Try the defaults, hopefully the others will be fixed soon.

Just a thought, try changing your theme to the another/default theme, might be a themeing problem.

I always use only default theme.
But the problem is in there: I try two other themes -- text appears. When I change it to defaul again -- no text everywhere.
Odd.
Is there any way to fix it?

Have you managed to compile 1.6?

Tried but I get error when running make from a clean git clone:
Code: Select all
cinnamon-arrow.c: In function 'cinnamon_arrow_redraw':
cinnamon-arrow.c:80:3: error: 'clutter_cairo_texture_create' is deprecated (declared at /usr/include/clutter-1.0/clutter/deprecated/clutter-cairo-texture.h:47): Use 'clutter_cairo_texture_invalidate' instead [-Werror=deprecated-declarations]

That's the latest, all right. Are you running ./autogen.sh && dpkg-buildpackage (apt build)? It shouldn't promote the warning to an error.

Code: Select all
$ grep -n 'deprecate' logs/build-cinnamon.log
549:cinnamon-arrow.c:80:3: warning: 'clutter_cairo_texture_create' is deprecated (declared at /usr/include/clutter-1.0/clutter/deprecated/clutter-cairo-texture.h:47): Use 'clutter_cairo_texture_invalidate' instead [-Wdeprecated-declarations]


Note Cinnamon has added a dependency on python-lxml. It will complain at install time.

Thanks MT, was trying to make as apt build wasn't working, has it been deprecated in favour of dpkg-buildpackage?

Anyway your debs work like a dream (as always!)

What was the problem?

They're the same thing.

/usr/local/bin/apt
Code: Select all
# list all available commands with `apt help`
...
argcommand = sys.argv[1] 
...
elif argcommand == "build":
        command = sudo + " dpkg-buildpackage" + argoptions
...
os.system(command)

I am getting command not found for apt - something must be broken. Off to work will investigate later.

@ xircon: apt is part of the mintsystem package. Maybe that package needs to be reinstalled to get apt commands working. However you can just use dpkg-buildpackage.

nemo 1.0.3

Caution: I haven't tested this very much. You can install just nemo.deb and nemo-data.deb. I'm not sure if we'll need the others yet. Gory details:

Code: Select all
$ apt-cache show libnemo-extension1a gir1.2-nemo-3.0
Package: libnemo-extension1a
 .
 This package contains a few runtime libraries needed by nemo' extensions.

Package: gir1.2-nemo-3.0
 .
 This package can be used by other packages using the GIRepository format to
 generate dynamic bindings.

$ apt-cache policy libnemo-extension1a gir1.2-nemo-3.0 nemo nemo-data
libnemo-extension1a:
  Installed: 1.0.2+lmde
  Candidate: 1.0.2+lmde
gir1.2-nemo-3.0:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 1.0.2+lmde
nemo:
  Installed: 1.0.3
  Candidate: 1.0.3
nemo-data:
  Installed: 1.0.3
  Candidate: 1.0.3


The extensions in romeo (-seahorse, -fileroller, -dropbox, -sendto, -share) seem to work. You may need to restart X (ctrl+alt+backspace).

I took my UP5 test machine up to Sid this morning. Cinnamon is working OK, just the same problems I reported in the UP5 feedback thread. Settings and menu editor won't launch. Everything else seems fine so far.


Squeezy, what errors do you get if you run cinnamon-settings from a terminal?

Hey xircon, I just now saw this post. Sorry for forgetting I posted in this thread. It's not relevant now, but I just wanted you to know my neglect to respond was not an intentional slight :oops:

Muffin 1.1.2, Cinnamon 1.6.4, Nemo 1.0.6

32-bit
md5: aea9a97d477c8408b0d472791cc692ad

64-bit
md5: 46804da7ef525fe69cfb75dbbc6979c2

Note, I followed dpkg's advice to use --auto-deconfigure to fix libnemo-extension1 replacing the older package libnemo-extension1a from v1.0.3.

Code: Select all
$ sudo dpkg --auto-deconfigure --install libnemo-extension1_1.0.6_amd64.deb nemo_1.0.6_amd64.deb nemo-data_1.0.6_all.deb
...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libnemo-extension1a:
 libnemo-extension1 (1.0.6) breaks libnemo-extension1a and is installed


I don't want the old package, so:
Code: Select all
$ sudo aptitude remove libnemo-extension1a

just a bit off-topic :D
muffin is now in debian (sid) proper
the RFS
cinnamon is not so lucky (yet?)
Nicolas Bourdaud tried as well the debian gnome team and in the last follow-up he is asked if has any plans to package nemo too
Interesting! You don't happen to have any plans to package Nemo,
now with Nautilus 3.6 having been crippled :S I've gotten used to
gnome-shell (though I still really grieve the loss of a 2-dimensional
workspace), but I don't think I can get used the loss of functionality
and disruption of workflow that the new Nautilus brings.
