Cinnamon for Debian ====================== 1. Running There are two main ways of running Cinnamon: replacing your current GNOME window manager and panel components, or inside a Xephyr window, as a way to quickly try it out without compromising your environment. At this stage one of the options may work better than the other, depending on various factors, including your drivers. To run Cinnamon under Xephyr you first need to install the xserver-xephyr package, and then run Cinnamon with the --xephyr parameter: $ cinnamon --xephyr 2. It's SLOW as hell! To run Cinnamon you need to have proper DRI, and a video driver that Clutter likes. In some Intel cards, Kernel-Mode Setting (KMS) may help. In case Cinnamon runs but is extremely slow you can try enabling KMS or running it with CLUTTER_VBLANK=none in its environment. See http://bugzilla.openedhand.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1730. 3. If you have enough corage... Cinnamon installs a .desktop file which makes it possible to make it the default for your session, replacing metacity/gnome-panel. To make it the default all you need to do is set the following gconf key to 'cinnamon': /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/windowmanager Here's the gconftool command, if you're feeling lazy: $ gconftool-2 -t string -s /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/windowmanager cinnamon -- Gustavo Noronha Silva <email@example.com>, Tue, 20 Oct 2009 14:50:12 -0200
