I think Leigh has done a great job with cinnamon, in fact I have installed it on all of my fedora systems and dumped gnome 3. I had gnome 3 working pretty well with the extensions and fippery stuff, but Cinnamon makes it all work better and easier. If the fedora people do not want to include it, hopefully Leigh you will continue to develop it, becuase it rocks!

Thanks for your hard work.

It doesn't work for me. It's installed & enabled via cinnamon-settings, but it doesn't appear anywhere.

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

Yep. No errors. Should I have disabled the extension before upgrading to cinnamon 1.3.1 though? I left it enabled and didn't restart cinnamon until it was re-installed, did I screw something up? Uninstalling, cleaning up, and re-installing doesn't do anything.

So it turns out that the extensions have been moved out of /usr/bin/cinnamon to /home/$USER/... and that's why I had issues... I was running the scripts as root.
