I have been running cinnamon for a while and when i upgraded to ubuntu 13.04 I started having panel issues. I have uninstalled cinnamon and re installed several times. I eventually got it back by installing nemo again but i could not install any new applets. I tried installing the gnome menus from the instructions on the site and they never showed and i logged out and back in all i got was a wall paper and no panels. I can pull up the command prompt but it does not have a boarder. After a while the crash alert will come up but cinnamon will never come back and the crash alert comes up. Any help would be much appreciated.

I've just installed the Cinnamon Desktop Environment using this guide: Cinnamon. However, after logging into the Cinnamon session, it looks nothing like how it's supposed to look by default. I cannot see anything within the windows, the background is blue, and when I hover over things such as the "Menu" it seems like the graphic is scrambling.
To clarify on some things:
Here's what I mean when I say I cannot see anything within the windows. I right click on an empty space on the desktop and just get an outline of the right-click context menu. I can click on "Menu" from the panel, but if I select something like "Appearances" the window outline will come up with nothing visible within the window. I had to guess where the "Log Out" button was in the dialog box after selecting "Log Out" from the "Menu".
So what is the problem here and how do I fix it?

Strange problems installing Mint 13 Cinnamon on HP 530 laptop
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 19, 2013
I decided to update my old HP 530 Laptop from Mint 9 (Superb - totally fault free!) to Mint 13 Cinnamon 32. Installation went well. After install I tried to add additional drivers to pick up the wireless (broadcom)connection. The install crashed.
I have searched the forums and tried various "solutions" which have all failed - and worse, now Synaptic has failed with errors flagging E: cache open or somesuch.
So, now I need to get Synaptic working again and need to find the wireless solution.
Can anyone suggest a genuine solution for this newby who is giving up the will to live ....
anyone else having update problems with Mint15 Mate & 16 Cinnamon or mate RC
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 21, 2013
Seems like my update is unable to find all the files required to do the update.
Maybe something goofy with files on update server or with my system?
says could not refresh the packages at times and other times unable to download some of the packages and update is cancelled.
W: Failed to fetch http:/
packages.linuxmint.com/dists/olivia/Release.gpg Could not connect to packages.linuxmint.com:80 (18.104.22.168), connection timed out
W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
Wutt to do? Wait? Could be servers are busy or doing upgrades?
Manual refresh doesn't seem to bear fruit!
If anyone is saavy here thanx for a reply.
I'm running Mint15Mate trying to run Mint16 Cinnamon and MateRC in Vbox. Just switched from using AMD proprietary driver to recommended one.
Linux Mint Problems Cinnamon
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 16, 2013
I have installed Linux mint via the "Install inside windows" option. And then I used the install app in side linux mint to finish. The problem is though when I long in I get a black screen then a termial style error message which is of the sort "Can not change frquency 4******" (The *'s being other numbers) After the error it goes back to the login menu and if I try again the same thing happens. Anyone know what the problem is? (Besides using the "install inside windows option, for all the "smart" people out there.)
When I try to use mint 15 cinnamon, I have "freezing" problems, but Mate is fine.

When I try to use mint 15 cinnamon, I have "freezing" problems, but Mate is fine. I really enjoy Mint and can't wait for 16 to be released. Hopefully, I'll be able to use Cinnamon then.
Ubuntu 13.10 + Cinnamon, slight filemanager problems.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 18, 2014
Hi running Ubuntu 13.10 64bit with the Cinnamon desktop. The file manager used was nemo which worked alright, but I wanted to try nautilus instead, so I removed nemo. Unfortunately this didn't work so well, as nautilus doesn't autostart when i boot up the computer. I have to manually launch nautilus. Not the smartest idea to remove nemo, but I assumed that nautilus would automatically kick in and replace it
I thought I could just reinstall nemo should anything happen, but that turned out not to be the case
So a couple of questions. First of I would like to reinstall nemo just in case I want to go back to the defaults. But when I try to install nemo from the terminal it says:
sudo apt-get install nemo

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have
Some problems with Cinnamon desktop
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 31, 2013
anybody using Cinnamon for a desktop?
I installed Cinnamon 1.8.8 on my Ubuntu 13.04 machine (64 bits, using 3.5.0-28-generic kernel). I really love the look-and-feel of it (no flame war please!) but it has some minor annoyances that make it rather unusable like:
- clicking a window on on the window list does not switch to this window
- clicking on a icon in the 'panel launcher' or 'shortcut bar' does not start the programm
- can not remove an icon from the 'panel launcher'
- some icons in the notification area are blank like the dropbox, gnome-do, libreoffice-quickstarter, opera, radio-tray icons
- alt-tab shows blank icons for some programs like opera
Any hints on how to solve this?
Are these problems only on Ubuntu or are they on Mint as well?
