I do not have any issues with the PPA, but when I tried to go to 2.0 but nothing happens. I did as suggested a couple of places:

Code: Select all

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable 
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Cinnamon still 1.8.8.

Suggestions?
Mint 18.3 MATE

There is a pin-priority setting you have to change as Mint's ppa has precedence over external ppa's by default. Do a search for pin-priority.

Thanks HoppityBob - that did it.

I added the following to /etc/apt/preferences

Code: Select all

Package: *
Pin: origin ppa.launchpad.net
Pin-Priority: 700
Then ran

Code: Select all

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Mint 18.3 MATE

I got an error about ubuntu session. Just click the session button on the login screen and select cinnamon. Select to make it the default session, just once did not work. I got a funky background image, looked all random pixels. Just select a new wallpaper and it is ok. So far Cinnamon 2.0 looking good.

You are using a different PPA than I am. Try this one:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable
Mint 18.3 MATE

Mr ZeroZero.

That may well be but it should still exist...

Shouldn't it?

:D the ppa exists, the address is malformed in your sources.list
check with

Code: Select all

inxi -r
you should have an entry
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-nightly/ubuntu debian main
if you go to the ppa homepage you see that there's no "debian" release (as it shouldn't)
This PPA contains nightly builds for the Cinnamon desktop environment.

/!\ WARNING : Nightly builds are unstable, use only for debugging purposes /!\

Supported releases : Precise, Quantal, Raring, Saucy
https://launchpad.net/~gwendal-lebihan- ... on-nightly

anyway trying to manually correct that will most probably get you into a pretty nasty dependency hell.
consider it a safety feature :lol:
