Add link to Cinnamon website on linuxmint.com

Is there anyway we can get a direct link to the website under the "Community" tab ie. "forum" and "blog". I can not find an easy way to navigate to the Cinnamon webpage without just typing it in myself.

Re: Update Manager Hangs

I have heard of a lot of problems with muon freezing on updates. I am sticking with synaptic for now since I was able to get mintupdate to work properly. But every computer and user has different experiences.

Re: Update Manager Hangs

When I first updated Mint 12 KDE, the first thing it did was update the mintupdate itself, then restarted it after that. It all worked for me. I'd try opening Synaptic and search for mintupdate, update just that one package and then try it again. Well, I used Konsole and the apt-get update/upgrade ...

Re: Update Manager Hangs

I am very surprised nobody has found a solution. Clem, Vince, anyone? This is an integral part of the 'ease of use' Mint has always accomplished. Surely there is a solution. I am no so noob that I cant run the update in the command line, but I guess I have just become accustomed to the update manage...

Re: Update Manager Hangs

I just recently installed Mint 12 KDE and I am getting the same problem. After a fresh install there were numerous updates, so I started the update manager to do the updates. After the update manager hung, I also tried closing it with no success. I had to restart the computer. I then thought maybe j...

Re: Why so confusing?

@Maynard If you really want to learn more about Mint and the Desktop Environments (DE) is to read the forum. Once you think you have read enough, READ some more. For the past 2 years I have been experimenting with linux myself and have tried numerous versions. I continue to find myself coming back t...

Re: linux mint start

I have had this too before. Not after a dual boot, but simply a full install of Linux Mint. (and other distros I have experimented with) I wish I knew a work-around as well. I have always resorted to a new full install to get it to work, since it only takes about another 15-20 min of my time because...

Re: Purge extra DE

You cannot remove GNOME. Cinnamon base on Gnome3 shell. If you want to remove MATE try solution in : Mint 12 Tips & Tricks Guide section 1i amd ij. Wow, Thank you. I completely overlooked that part in the LM 12 tips post. Hopefully one day i will be able to have solely Cinnamon installed on my syst...

Purge extra DE

With the release of Cinnamon, I am ready to delete/purge all other existing DE that come included with the main edition of LM12. How can I go about purging MATE? Also, can I purge Gnome now with the release of 1.2? I know 1.2 has moved further away from Gnome Shell, but I am wondering if I were to p...
