Did anybody find some other clues how to make Cinnamon default via some config file? So that it is default login option first time you log on to your system?

It's a dirty hack


Code:
%post

# remove this session file from gnome-session package to make cinnamon the default

rm -rf /usr/share/xsessions/gnome.desktop %end

Oh, I see, it really is a dirty hack, but if there is no other way I'll use it also...
Thanks!

Doing this will probably break the fallback session.

Re: Cinnamon guide for F16 (replacement for gnomes-hell)

1.3.0 updated to 1.3.1, weather extension does not work, solution is to edit /usr/share/cinnamon/extensions/weather@cinnamon.org/metadata.json and change 1.3.0 to 1.3.1, I'm trying to create a script that checks and corrects for the correct version, except this problem, this works well

Re: Cinnamon guide for F16 (replacement for gnomes-hell)

Just update to the latest version, and now for some reason my applets are, for lack of a better term, left justifying on my task bar (I run one on the bottem) any way to make these stick to the right like they were before, espically the workspace swithcer as they move when apps are opened or closed.

Thanks
David

I have installed it and works like a charm.

Re: Cinnamon guide for F16 (replacement for gnomes-hell)

Is there any way to have the clock read AM & PM instead of the 24 Hour ?

Re: Cinnamon guide for F16 (replacement for gnomes-hell)

In cinnamon settings set it up with the same syntax as the date command.

I noticed this too. It looks like the center section of the panel was moved to the right edge of the left section of the panel. I had to use gsettings to fix this because dconf-editor gets confused with very long keys.

Yes. Under the "Cinnamon Settings" is the calendar entry.

This entry uses the format specification from the "date" command, so looking at the manpage for date will let you read what each "%" field means, and how to change it.

I use "%a %b %e, %l:%M %p" in the "Date format for the panel" field.
