I wish I could give more info. As of now, when I select Cinnamon from the login screen and log in, both of my monitors just turn black and nothing happens. There is absolutely no response, visible errors, or anything. I am forced to do a soft reboot.

It always worked perfectly on 12.04, but now nothing. I added the 12.10 PPAs and updated and everything.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to give you more info. Where is the error log?

Let me know what info you need to make this bug report worthwhile.

Thanks for your amazing work. At the moment, I'm forced to use crappy Unity. Cinnamon is far superior, and I can't wait to start using it again.

Keep up the good work,

Scott

Did you tried to remove the packages and installed from nightly repo? Here it works well.
After dist-upgrade it removed the cinnamon packages by itself and after dist-upgrade you should need to reinstall it.

Please run cinnamon --replace from terminal and post the output.

Hey, unfortunately the output might not be all that useful to you now, because I was able to fix this problem before I saw this comment.

Somehow during the upgrade to 12.10, my xorg.conf got messed up, and my nvidia drivers crapped out on me. I ended up reinstalling the nvidia drivers and enabling composting manually in the xorg.conf file. This fixed the problem for me.

Here is the current output (after being fixed):

@dolmance41 It seems you are running an outdated version of Cinnamon.

@dolmance41

Please direct me to a newer version!!!!!

At the moment both of those PPA's contain 1.6.4 which should be good. I assumed dolmance41 was still on 1.4-ish because of some warning messages that I hadn't seen in later releases.

@sgreenfield @dolmance41 Is this still an issue?

@autarkper

Assuming this is no longer an issue.
