Cinnamon 1.8 on LM 14

Postby Wiss on Mon May 13, 2013 3:26 pm

Hello everybody.

I installed LM 14.1 64-bit with Cinnamon on my computer. It had Cinnamon 1.6.7 so I wanted to upgrade it to 1.8.

First, I tried to get it by the update manager, but no change happened.

Then, I tried to remove 1.6.7 by using the following commands:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove cinnamon

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get autoremove


Then, rebooted and the system reverted to the basic desktop (don't know its exact name). While being on that desktop I tried to install Cinnamon 1.8 by following the guidelines provided by this website:

After that install and selecting cinnamon again, I am still in 1.6.7 . What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advancement

After adding the repository and removing cinnamon, use the following commands to install the new Cinnamon:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -tquantal cinnamon libmuffin0 gir1.2-muffin-3.0 nemo


According to http://segfault.linuxmint.com/2013/05/cinnamon-1-8/, Cinnamon 1.8 will be in Romeo(unstable) repository. You can enable Romeo in software sources, and then update to 1.8.

Mint 15 should be out by the end of the month(RC should be out mid-may) and will include Cinnamon 1.8 if you're willing to wait.
