Re: Cannot install Cinnamon 1.6 from PPA

Thank you all for your help. I removed the PPA and enabled romeo, then installed cinnamon from text console and am now running Cinnamon 1.6.4 (which btw is running like a rainbows' beast). Oh, and I ran into the same problem as malligt. Then I apt-get upgraded, which installed gir1.2-muffin-3.0 and ...

Two panel layout FTW!

No matter how many times I try to adapt to all these "modern" new interfaces, I always find myself reverting to the traditional Gnome two-panel layout with the launchers and statusicons at the top and the window list, show desktop button and workspace switcher at the bottom. It's the ultimate king o...

However, instead of using the official wheezy repos, I want to use the Latest repository of Mint (because I want to be safe from random breakages).

Why was MATE created?

The MATE desktop environment was created to retain the traditional desktop paradigm, in response to Unity and Gnome Shell, right? A large proportion of linux users wanted to stick with the panel approach for task management, application launching, etc. What's attracted the most negative response fro...

ubuntu and Debian question
