No Desktop #209

I just installed Cinnamon in Xubuntu 11.10, with PPA.

Started it and it was working, then, I opened the gnome-tweak-tool, change the theme, press alt+f2, type r + enter.

Now, i just dont have a Cinnamon Desktop anymore, just my wallpaper.

Same here although I didn't have a desktop from the get go, I'm pretty sure I saw the bottom bar appear for a split second but then nothing.

I've got a 2 VGA/3 monitor setup using Xinerama.

If you need any debugging info let me know how I can provide it and I'll be glad to do so.

Turned out to be a problem with Gnome3, doesn't seem to like Xinerama -- I'm guessing 'cause of the lag of RandR.
Such a shame, Cinnamon seemed a great way out.

Got mine working here with Xinerama. I have to say, Xinerama/nVidia is a real mess right now... no randr support.. had to choose Twinview, make my primary monitor "primary" and move my secondary up a little for it not to be considered the "bottom" desktop by cinnamon.

Closing this issue as it's out of our hands.

I solve my problem setting a GTK3 theme as default in XFCE configs, and, login again in Cinnamon.
