    Cinnamon guide (replacement for gnome-shell)

    description


    Cinnamon provides core user interface functions for the GNOME 3 desktop,
    like switching to windows and launching applications. Cinnamon takes
    advantage of the capabilities of modern graphics hardware and introduces
    innovative user interface concepts to provide a visually attractive and
    easy to use experience.




    To install cinnamon


    Code:
    su
    yum groupinstall "Cinnamon Desktop"
    After installing it logout then select cinnamon from the session menu at GDM login.

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

    Nice timing, Leigh. I just rebooted after installing your koji rpm. I like it so far! I do miss the nice system monitor I had working in gnome shell, though. But I like having the overview, which was missing with the frippery extensions. Do you think it has a shot at getting accepted as an official Fedora package?

    Dan, you'll need to tweak org > cinnamon > [ favorite-apps and panel-launchers ] with dconf-editor to get them working correctly. There's no gnome-documents.desktop in Fedora, and firefox.desktop is preceded by 'mozilla-'. Also, gnome-tweak-tool doesn't control the cinnamon window theme. You need to set it in gconf-editor at desktop > cinnamon > windows > theme and then do the alt-f2 r thing.

    OK. The themeing in cinnamon is done in overlay where the applications would have been in G-shell. It only reads what's in /usr/share/themes, though.

    So, how's it feel being the hero to a few hundred thousand frustrated Gnome3 users?

    Nice work, Leigh. Excellent option and I'm sure it's only going to get better.

    Dang. Might have spoken too soon, Leigh. It worked fine in the Fukushima ... until I updated, (or rather, de-updated pygobject3) and logged out, then tried to log back in. Now it craters at the GFFOD, and makes you log out. Lather, rinse, repeat. <....>

    Not so much of an update, as a de-update. The Fukushima had the bad pygobject3 update.

    Looking for anything in the xsession file. ...
