Re: Cinnamon PPA with Extensions

That's not yet in the repository, right? Perhaps you should rename it, so that people switching between GS and Cinnamon can have the original GS version? It's already in the Repo. There is no need to rename it. It works for both Gnome Shell and Cinnamon. When you login to a Gnome Shell session it h...

Re: Cinnamon PPA with Extensions

I have updated the weather extension for 1.2.0. I have also updated gnome-tweak-tool to allow you to change the windows theme. You have to restart cinnamon after you change the theme. Also it allows you to change the which windows actions buttons are allow to show. If youi are on Linux Mint it won't...

Re: Cinnamon PPA with Extensions

I don't have time now but will update the ppa later today.
I haven't even tested it yet so it'll take some time to get everything in the ppa.

Re: Cinnamon PPA with Extensions

Hi Thanks for your latest infos. 1. Where is Clem writing? 2. What do you mean by this sentence: Don't plan on seeing others have Cinnamon 1.1.4 soon after it's released. . Should I understand that the 1.1.4. version of Cinnamon will be final? Or that it will not be easily used soon by other distro...

Re: Cinnamon PPA with Extensions

Now extensions are going to be called applets and have many changes on how they work. Most extensions coming from Gnome Shell should not be extensions, but applets instead. Here are a few advantages of applets vs extensions in Cinnamon: - Easier to write (most of the things are already done for you)...

Re: Cinnamon PPA with Extensions

@merlwiz79, Thats a shame. :( I like what you have done with the extensions so far. I really like the weather extension. Maybe there will be a way to make it work in 1.1.4. :twisted: (EDIT): I just installed the latest cinnamon-session from update manager. The weather extension still works. :D Mayb...

Re: Cinnamon PPA with Extensions

It looks like these extensions won't work in 1.1.4. Because the differences between Cinnamon and Gnome Shell are not superficial. The two projects are going towards opposite directions and when it comes to themes and extensions it's more important to us that they work well and are well supported rat...

Re: Cinnamon PPA with Extensions

I patched Cinnamon Setttings to work with the current version in the PPA. It has less settings then gnome-tweak-tool(Advanced Settings). It also has no translations. PPA is slow and says it'll take 7 hours to build. :( You can test it before it hits the repo here: cinnamon-settings.tar.gz Got everyt...

Yes but it's not done yet.
The one built by Clem will have more options.

Edit: I hope tomorrow I can finish the extensions packages.

Re: Cinnamon PPA with Extensions

Ok I just got done reconfiguring gnome-tweak-tool(Advanced Settings) to work with bot Gnome Shell and Cinnamon. Even got most of the translations setup for Cinnamon. It does show shell themes for Cinnamon though. Shell themes don't seem to work well for Cinnamon either. Launchpad says the build will...

Re: Cinnamon PPA with Extensions

1) Letting everyone know where to find your PPA's. (and that they exist) It's on the downloads page. http://cinnamon.linuxmint.com/?page_id=61 2) Finding and installing the extentions after PPA repo's are added. (mainly for newbies) Well they can search for cinnamon in Synaptic and find them. Most ...

Yep just have to wait to hear back from Clem.
Once I make the extensions a lot is set in stone and can't be changed without causing problems for the user.
