Re: Cinnamon PPA with Extensions(updated Feb 16)

We are moving over about 900 miles and no idea when we'll have a place to live. We have 90 days to find a job and a place to live after the move. I won't be able to update cinnamon or the extensions for a long time. I'll have internet but my laptop doesn't have 3d acceleration graphics drivers. My d...

Re: Cinnamon PPA with Extensions(updated Feb 04)

I'm really loving Cinnamon. And thank you merlwiz, for all of your hard work on porting extensions. However, maybe I'm missing something: when I go to the Overview (ctrl-alt-down arrow), I just see my open windows. Shouldn't there be "Windows" and "Themes" menu options in the ov...

Re: Cinnamon PPA with Extensions(updated Feb 04)

I have my issues fixed! are you working on themes to import them as well merlwiz? that would make themes easier to install Sorry I'm not working on themes at the moment.

just one question though...does he need to install Cinnamon session first and then add the ppa or does he only need to install the ppa?
(pardon my confusion about that...lol)

Add the PPA to your repository list and then install cinnamon.

Open Gpaste daemon settings and enable Primary selection affects history.

Re: Cinnamon PPA with Extensions(updated Feb 03)

I did some googling about and basically i need to press alt while I am at overlay mode. When do you expect to have the workspace navigator? I guess because this is missing from cinnamon I don't see the workspaces in overlay mode, right? thanks for your hard work. Clem wants to replace it with somet...

Furtheremore , can I have some info on how I can use the places-menu and windowsnavigator extentions? Open Cinnamon Setti...

Ok I have updated the extensions for 1.2.0. I even have the dock extension working. That's true (I actually checked on the web), but I'm not offered the chance to upgrade the package: at the moment I have version 3.2.0-0ubuntu1-1mint3 (lisa) installed, I guess the version from your repo is the one l...

To Merlwiz79: I followed your instructions in your very first post in this thread (Sat. 1/7). Added the PPA to software sources and then brought the extensions into Synaptic. Tried to install them from Synaptic and received all these errors. Can you post the errors here? I use Synaptic to install e...

Re: Cinnamon PPA with Extensions

I tried to install the cinnamon-extensions files but ran into all kinds of errors and missing dependencies problems. For now I am just going to leave Cinnamon alone until it is in a more stable state and being able to add features is easier. For now I prefer and will use GNOME Classic. I have insta...
