Cinnamon: Little stable upgrades in other distribution

I've been trying Cinnamon in Fedora for some time, but I often notice desktop upgrades that are unsteady... and I think it would be more sensible to test better before upgrading!!!

The Themes section has always had some problem... with the release of Cinnamon 3.6 at me now even pops up!!!

Please report the bug, as I am not subscribed to Gitub!!!!

So you're not talking about Mint in Cinnamon? Then this posting will have zero result at all. No one here will write a bug report based on your very vague remarks about things that happened to someone else (you) on a different distro.

I assume that other distributions take Cinnamon from the same repositories on Git from which that desktop is released.... Of course I'm talking about Cinnamon, but unfortunately I have to say that with the last release you can not even be able to the section of themes!!

Linux isn't nearly as integrated as WIndows is ... instead of huge megalithic OS files you get many, many smaller ones. As far as Linux sees it, your DE is really just another bit of application software.

So I'm not inclined to blame Cinnamon here but some underlying hardware support issue.

Fedora is not meant for neebs like you so you aren't going to get much better help there than you will here. Which, since you aren't running Mint or even a Debian based distro, is going to be about zero, as mentioned.

Regardless of whether it depends on the error, or on that distribution or hardware you experience the problem, I do not personally believe that it is bad to report a bug.... and even I do not think too much that opening a relative item in a menu can depend more than so much from hardware!!!!

But Evidentememente Forum has a whole other perspective....

Does nothing remove Cinnamon by solving the problem.... Thank you and sorry for the trouble!!!!

It is certainly not bad to report a bug. But what you are doing here is not reporting a bug.
You're requesting for someone else to write a bug report, with minimal information, about problems that they have not seen and that occurred on a distro they are not using. I just don't see that going anywhere.

What people here are trying to say is that you can't assume you have a bug. I'm done here.

You still haven't reported a bug. Maybe it is a language difficulty but you haven't stated what isn't working correctly. The only assumptions I can make of what isn't right doesn't exist in 18.2 or LMDE2.

Sure, Fedora gets Cinnamon from Github, then they make whatever adjustments are needed for their repos. If it doesn't work, Fedora failed to make the necessary adjustments or, as already stated, it is a problem specific to YOUR machine.

Also as stated, I am just guessing what the possible issues are that you have experienced. Maybe if you clearly state that it is something someone here can help with. Otherwise, take it up with the Cinnamon maintainer at Fedora.
