Cinnamon breakage (nightlies)

Postby d00med » Wed Apr 24, 2013 8:46 am

Just updated to the Cinnamon nightlies and Cinnamon no longer functions.

Here's the output of Cinnamon --replace

Code: Select all

I can create a new user and use Cinnamon, but it crashes with my account, so maybe I can delete a config in my home folder to fix this?

Edit: It was self correcting with the next nightly update.

Cinnamon is back to being completely snakebit. Again. I'm getting the freezing bug again and it's the same on all my computers with Mint 14. I've reinstalled Mint so many times in the last two or so months that I've lost count. Cannot take it anymore, it's past time to switch distros.

That's fair, and I came here hoping to delete this thread as I don't like to get negative like this, but I'm having life issues and it's getting the better of me. Apologies to the hard working Mint team.

The Cinnamon freeze bug is a separate issue from using Cinnamon nightlies though. It was thought to be graphics card related but I'm pretty sure that's been ruled out. It's unresolved at this point and no one seems to know the cause.
