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

Leigh this is fantastic! Thank you very, very much. I am happy to say that I don't think I will need to log in to a KDE session again anytime soon. Brilliant work.

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

Today I tried out Cinnamon for the first time (of course have played with it while using Mint).

I have to say that I quite like it.
It is still Gnome 3 but (especially in a VM) much snappier and easier to customize than the Shell and way more useful than fall-back mode.

Still think that Gnome Shell will be my default DE.

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

It does work quite well (yes, I finally updated my system, though not in the usual manner.... I used tar to copy a VM, then reused my existing /boot and grub after putting the F16 kernel+initrd).

There are some niggling items - inability to move windows from workspace to workspace, and I haven't gotten around to eliminating that obnoxious fullscreen balloon every time a window hits the top bar very much.

Oh and the configuration control adding utilties to the top bar... but eventually.

Did you update the cinnamon version in the metadata.json as outlined above?

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

Your sig has an interesting history...

And then later...

Git development began after many Linux kernel developers chose to give up access to the proprietary BitKeeper system. (The copyright holder of BitKeeper, Larry McVoy, withdrew free use of the product after he claimed that Andrew Tridgell had reverse-engineered the BitKeeper protocols.)

Torvalds wanted a distributed system that he could use like BitKeeper, but none of the available free systems met his needs, particularly his performance needs. From an email he wrote on April 7, 2005.
So your signature is a bit misleading.

Appologies for the off topic...

Thank you for leading me to an interesting read on the history of Git. However, I find nothing misleading about the general idea of the quote.

Anyway, back on topic.

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

Thanks Leigh! I applied Clem's fix manually and it is working good


update: I just did a yum update, and this is the output when trying to update cinnamon.

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

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

cinnamon is built against F17 so the update doesn't work
