Cinnamon won't start after update to 2.0

Post by Rehdon »

Hello everybody,
waiting for LM 16 I updated my current LM 14 install to Cinnamon 2.0 using the stable PPA: all went well until yesterday I updated the MDM display manager package as well, because now MDM won't start at all as a service and my box boots straight to the console; at that point even startx won't work (tries to boot GNOME), I have to manually start MDM (sudo mdm) to get to Cinnamon.

Any ideas? I found this thread http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=206&t=141808&p=778850#p778850 but I really don't understand what I should do to fix the issue.

Many thanks in advance!
