cinnamon not working

Post by patrick_peters » Tue Oct 02, 2012 10:27 am

I have Linux Mint 13.
But I somehow cannot get cinnamon running.
When I installed Mint, cinnamon theme was working fine, but then I restarted the computer after a couple days, and not I have the menu's on top and bottom - which is gnome.
How can I get cinnamon working?
I already have the 1.6 version installed.

thank you,

This is probably due to your graphics card drivers not supporting hardware accelerated 3D graphics, as are needed for running Cinnamon. Can you share the output of:

Code: Select all
