Re: woodsmoke's superos/mint/cinnamon install [Finished]

Hi well it has been a great few months! Jan to May! lol I just thought that I would report that Cinnamon has been a real "workhorse" for the last months.

Re: Cinnamon on Geforce FX5200

Hi i realize that you are asking about a 5200 but I've run it with an 8600 and then stuck in a 6600 and it didn't balk with either, using the 173+updated driver.

Cinnamon keeps getting PROMINENT mention!

More and more, it’s no longer about “I run Fedora” or “openSUSE rocks”… now the conversations have shifted to things like how much better Cinnamon is than Unity.

Re: Window Themes

Hi
I thought I'd wait a while on this to see if anything changed with updates, but about four or five days ago all of the "themes" in Cinnamon settings went away except for "cinnamon" which is the one with an image of sedges on the desktop.
