Cinnamon 1.6 in Maya

Postby BillybobT » Sun Feb 24, 2013 11:28 am

I've been a big Linux Mint advocate for a few years now. There have only been a couple versions that caused me to try out other distros, but I've been happy with them for a while. That being said, I was excited to try out Nadia with the latest Cinnamon and Nemo. Unfortunately, it seems no matter what I do (at least 4 different installations; thought maybe some of the software I installed, upgrade methods were messing things up, but why would it be any different than before?), some kind of instability arises while I'm using it, usually display related (still haven't figured out a way to install nVidia drivers without screwing up the display totally). I did like the changes I saw in Cinnamon though.

I have never been able to get my Maya system to upgrade to Cinnamon 1.6. I've tried all the methods described in this forum; Romeo, the PPA, logging in using Gnome (where I am right now). Nothing seems to work. My system is fairly new (home-built i5-3570K, 16G Ram, nVidia GeForce 8800GT, dual Acer monitors).

I would be happy to provide some kind of info to help solve this, I just don't know what anyone would need right now.
Intel i5 3570K 3.4GHz
16GB Kingston Ram
2TB Seagate + 2TB Seagate + 750GB Hitachi + 2TB Seagate + 250GB WD external
nvidia GeForce 8800GT
Dual Acer 21" A221HQV
Mint 13 64, Ultimate Edition 3.5 64, Pinguy 11.10 64, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64

You need neither the PPA nor the romeo repositories to upgrade cinnamon to 1.6 in Maya. All you need to do is enable the backport repositories from the "software sources" tool.

If that still doesn't work, please provide some more information as to what doesn't work exactly.
