The work landed in Cinnamon Nightly today and here's how the new applet page in Cinnamon Settings/System Settings looks:
The front tab shows active installed applets. Pressing "inactive" displays applets installed locally but not added to panel. The fun comes with the "Get more online" tab:
It shows all available applets from the Spices website, sorted by rating (you can sort by "date changed" or "name" as well) and easily installed with two clicks - check the applet and press the "Install selected" button. You can also easily uninstall already installed applets. Everything worked smoothly in my test. It's a massive step forward for Cinnamon.
Here's hoping something similar for themes and extensions will find its way into Cinnamon soon
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!
