I just uploaded a new theme called BlueOnBlack, if you like it you can get it here. As far as I know, all of the other themes on my github are fixed for ver. 1.2.0 as well.

I switched to xfce due to number of annoyances in gnome3 but I thought I'd give cinnamona try. It seems a little more to what i was used to in g2, so maybe there is still a chance for g3. One of the annoyances that ms windows program apps are not a sub directory under wine like in xfce (or g2). I'm sure there is a workaround, but I do miss the drag and drop feature that was in g2. Can anyone point me to where this can be accomplished?

I like Cinnamon pretty well, the gnome one felt like it should be on a Tablet or something with it's big giant icons.
I am having one problem though, I down loaded the extensions and wanted to install the weather one. It is listed in Cinnamon Settings and I put a Check by it to enable it but it doesn't start.
I also went to dconf editor and the weather extension is there also and entered my correct woeid but I don't see any where it says to enable.
Reading on the net, it says ;
Once installed, you need to use dconf-editor if you want to enable the extensions: navigate to org > cinnamon > enabled extensions
When I navigate there I have org > cinnamon but NO enabled extensions catagory.
:doh: Thanks

You probably have a missing dep for the weather extension.

Working gmail extension added (needs compiling and moving to cinnamon)

Code:

mv /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/gmail_notify@jablona123.pl /usr/share/cinnamon/extensions/

Hi Leigh

I am trying to get gmail_notify running, without success so far.
First problem is that while my compile runs OK, the output ends up in /usr/local/share/.. not /usr/share/... I've compiled twice, same result.

I've manually moved the .pl folder, and the locale files to the right places, but still see nothing on my screen. Cinnamon settings and dconf Editor show the extension loaded and turned on.

Are there any problems with this extension? I haven't seen any other posts on this, on this thread.

Thanks

On the website of cinnamon, some new themes that work in Fedora 16 with perfect 1.2 cinnamon, check http://goo.gl/JUHwR

Hi Leigh

I have just solved this and have gmail_notify up and running (though I haven't qiute figured out how to set it up yet).

My solution, after looking at the metadata.json file for another extension, wa to add a cinnamon-version statement for 1.2 - the gmail_notify metadata.json file didn't have one.

You use gnome-control-center and set up online accounts



I linked a fixed version a few posts back.

Hi Leigh

Thanks for the setup info.

I used version 0.3.3 to install; so maybe it still has a problem.

Hi Leigh, thank you very much for the weather panel applet. And thank you to anyone else responsible for it. Leigh, you have once again made my Fedora 16 even better, and each time you do it -- you top the last one. Thank you very much. Ken

I have pushed a git build to the repo as it adds significant new functions to cinnamon-settings.

Enjoy :dance:
