Running Cinnamon 1.2 on Ubuntu Oneiric (from the merlwiz79 PPA on Launchpad). The xrandr display configuration applet does not start when enabling it in the Cinnamon Settings. When I first click on the checkbox, I see the following error in .xsession-errors:

Window manager warning: meta_window_activate called by a pager with a 0 timestamp; the pager needs to be fixed.
JS ERROR: !!!   Exception was: Error: Requiring GnomeDesktop, version none: Typelib file for namespace 'GnomeDesktop' (any version) not found
JS ERROR: !!!     lineNumber = '0'
JS ERROR: !!!     fileName = '"gjs_throw"'
JS ERROR: !!!     stack = '"("Requiring GnomeDesktop, version none: Typelib file for namespace 'GnomeDesktop' (any version) not found")@gjs_throw:0
@/usr/share/cinnamon/applets/xrandr@cinnamon.org/applet.js:6
"'
JS ERROR: !!!     message = '"Requiring GnomeDesktop, version none: Typelib file for namespace 'GnomeDesktop' (any version) not found"'
JS LOG: xrandr@cinnamon.org applet already loaded

The icon does not appear in the panel, further clicks on the checkbox just repeat the "applet already loaded" message, with no further visual feedback on the screen.

Make sure gir1.2-gnomedesktop-3.0 is installed.

Thanks, that indeed resolved the issue. I guess I'll have to submit a bug report to the Ubuntu package maintainer, to add this dependency...
