[SOLVED] Applications will not "launch" Cinnamon 2.0 upgrade

I FIXED IT! It had nothing to do with Cinnamon 2.0 or my user profile. It was a "mouse" issue. I had started to have similar problems with Gnome 3.0, so I "backed up" all my PlayOnLinux apps and VirtualBox machines and booted Linux Mint 16 Surprise, surprize! The first thing I noticed was that the "...

Re: Cinnamon not loading

Re: Applications will not "launch" after Cinnamon 2.0 upgrad

Been enjoying Gnome Shell (Gnome 3.0) and am considering "sticking with it" until Linux Mint 17! I have to reformat "/" and "/home" to fix Cinnamon anyway, so why do it before the next LTS? Besides, I might get used to alternatives! I also intend to "try" Enlightenment before moving back to Cinnamon...

Re: Applications will not "launch" after Cinnamon 2.0 upgrad

Did something RADICAL by installing the rest of Gnome 3.0 (in the hopes it would create a desktop config that could be migrated) No resolution! I'm still having the same behavior! Direct login to Cinnamon via GDM produces a hybrid desktop with mostly default icons and wallpaper but some custom icons...

Further options might be . . .

'python-gtk2' is already installed . . . "PyOS_InputHook is not available for interactive use of PyGTK" appears to be a somewhat common error, and in this instance, it does not stop Cinnamon from loading but only impedes its progress. There's an 'ipython' interactive shell package that MIGHT help Py...

Looking at 'mdm' (switching to 'gdm') then trying a "new" user next.

SAME BEHAVIOR WITH NEW USER! I get the default settings with the Welcome screen (which I do not get with my ordinary user)

Re: How to reset cinnamon to default settings? (SOLVED)

I didn't, and I wouldn't! It's obvious there's more than Cinnamon settings within '.config' And, yes, it's a folder and not a file.

The mouse was not frozen, and I could "right-click," but choosing any icon or menu did absolutely nothing. I could only exit via "Ctrl-Backspace" or "Ctrl-Alt-F1...

With .deb packages, you cant have both. I suggest you download the 3.6 Firefox off Mozilla's site and extract it to wherever you wish; you can run it then.
