Not sure.
I could not get it to be fully working, and as twa022 pointed, probably the best way from now on is to stick with the cinnamon from [community].

Don't know what is the AUR's policy in this case.
Theoretically, even after deleting the pkg, its PKGBUILD/tar.gz is still accessible by the URL, so one could still get it to not start from scratch again.

andrewSC commented on 2014-08-03 02:28

Is there a real interest in keeping this package? Do people depend on it?

twa022 commented on 2014-06-06 05:57

I imagine with Linux Mint's new release policy (following Ubuntu LTS), it's going to be harder to maintain the Cinnamon environment in Arch.
I disowned all the -git packages if anyone else feels like they can keep up with patching against upstream and wants to adopt them.

gbc921 commented on 2014-06-02 14:38

If someones wants to test:

https://github.com/gbc921/aur/tree/master/working/cinnamon-git

Not sure if it's working. Just compiled for me.

Thanks

gbc921 commented on 2014-05-28 12:36

@lots0logs: Did you get some news?
I saw your issue on cinnamon github, but didn't found a conclusion. Same problem here.
Thanks,

lots0logs commented on 2014-04-15 13:24

Some of the patches fail to apply because they may have been implemented upstream. However that's not the only problem, it still fails with the patches removed from the PKGBUILD. I will try to investigate further and report back..

malinas commented on 2014-01-13 06:54

Sure enough.. in the arch stable package there is an additional polkit rule.. please add this for now to build:
/usr/share/polkit-1/actions/
org.archlinux.pkexec.cinnamon-settings-users.policy

malinas commented on 2014-01-13 06:45

Getting issues now with this with polkit. cinnamon-git is bouncing between polkit gnome and not or?

Anywho.. stable works, so anyone know what to do?

masnormen commented on 2013-12-04 12:34

oso96_2000 is right. It should be webkitgtk, not webkitgtk3.

mininessie commented on 2013-11-08 01:08

i installed this and i cant log in it says something to the effect that it failed to load logging out and a button to log out lol

oso96_2000 commented on 2013-09-26 09:30

It seems webkitgtk3 dependency should be changed to just webkitgtk?

twa022 commented on 2013-09-01 03:26

actually they dropped bluetooth for their own applet, cinnamon-bluetooth(-git) that uses gnome-bluetooth

rectec commented on 2013-08-31 20:37

The blueman-git dependency needs to be changed to blueman-bzr:
"Github repo has been discontinued. Merging into blueman-bzr."

twa022 commented on 2013-08-25 17:55

gnome-desktop now forked to cinnamon-desktop(-git). Make sure to update the whole stack in order.

twa022 commented on 2013-08-18 02:54

@roelof: you're right. seems like nemo is now a required component rather than an optional dependency, PKGBUILD updated. FYI: Only the current maintainer can update the package on the AUR.

hoanglan87 commented on 2013-08-16 04:22

@roelof, the maintainer, chenxiaolong told he left this package so you can upload your PKGBUILD

Anonymous comment on 2013-08-15 09:00

Hello,

I build this package yesterday and I noticed if the user has nemo-git not installed the user has no background avaible and also the menu is not working properly. I have added this to my PKGBUILD locally but I do not know if I can upload it.

chenxiaolong commented on 2013-07-28 17:40

@twa022: I'm spending much of my time porting Unity and Mir to Arch. I don't really have much time for Cinnamon anymore. I've disowned this package, so if you'd like to adopt it, feel free to do so :)

twa022 commented on 2013-07-26 04:52

per my post below, package still requires gnome-settings-daemon for the power module (for the time being -- I assume 1.10/2.0 will have gsd dependency removed)

If you compile with gnome-bluetooth installed, and then remove it post-install (as it's no longer in dependencies array), the session will not launch properly. After uninstalling and recompiling, session launched fine. I don't have any bluetooth capable devices, so I'm not sure if blueman is really working (clicking on Bluetooth in cinnamon-settings does nothing for me).

twa022 commented on 2013-07-26 03:47

@nkoep, et al.

I've added all the freshly forked components to AUR

(cinnamon-session-git for gnome-session,
cinnamon-settings-daemon-git for gnome-settings-daemon and gnome-settings-daemon-compat,
cjs-git for gjs,
blueman-git for gnome-bluetooth)

and have things running well enough. Working PKGBUILD at http://pastebin.com/jfKhuUWg

nkoep commented on 2013-07-25 14:30

Just a heads-up. upstream decided to fork most of the GNOME dependencies recently. Consequently cinnamon-git doesn't build anymore.

chenxiaolong commented on 2013-04-15 00:52

@spikeh: Fixed

Please change the dependency version for muffin-git.

chenxiaolong commented on 2013-04-11 21:42

NOTE: The versioning of the package is different now with pacman 4.1. Please manually install the new package.

(Same thing with muffin-git too)

twa022 commented on 2013-02-07 00:51

add cinnamon-control-center-git as optdepends?
When installed, the settings applet launches it instead of cinnamon-settings

Denzo commented on 2013-01-07 02:13

Problem is not in cinnamon-git, my fault. It's a bug in GNOME that needs to be solved upstream:

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/33285

Denzo commented on 2013-01-07 01:25

Doesn't build for me, because it's looking for automake 1.12 or below, while Arch has 1.13 in its repo.

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-11-19 06:13

@gowness: Updated :)

gowness commented on 2012-11-14 07:53

I recently ran into an issue where i was getting the following when running cinnamon-settings:

No module named dbus

Fixed this with python2-dbus , should make this a dep

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-11-01 21:17

@MatejSpindler: Done :)

MatejSpindler commented on 2012-10-31 09:41

With update to gnome 3.6 cinnamon needs to be rebuilt to work. Can you bump the version or something so Yaourt and other helpers can do that automatically.

esclapion commented on 2012-09-19 23:39

The function edit menu by right-clicking does not work anymore, it is not possible to change the content of launchers. Alacarte installing, it works.

It is not possible to edit a shortcut to the taskbar: it can not find a command in / usr / share / cinnamon / applets / panel.-L ..

In "Cinnamon Settings", the Desktop icon is missing. Nemo-git installing, it appears.

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-09-19 00:03

Added python-imaging to deps :)

cinnamon-settings not launching without python-imaging installing

Ner0 commented on 2012-09-10 07:08

Is anyone having a messed up panel after the recent commits?
If so, reverting the #1093 commit fixes it.

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-09-09 19:26

@Luminary: I'll remove it. Previously, it was a Linux Mint git repo with their cinnamon applets. Then they merged it into cinnamon itself.

I did not know that someone created another package with the same name.

Luminary commented on 2012-09-09 06:29

I don't see why this conflicts cinnamon-applets and cinnamon-applets-git...

eugenez commented on 2012-09-02 02:52

Hi. New cinnamon-git 20120901-1. All icons from the desktop disappeared after updating, although the display enabled in cinnamon-settings. Also there are chinese captions in Backgrounds section of cinnamon-settings (with ru_RU locale).

@drewofdoom: I've put both nautilus and nemo-git in the optdepends, so users can choose which one to use with modifying the PKGBUILD :)

drewofdoom commented on 2012-08-30 19:20

@Luminary, @chenxiaolong

While I personally like nemo and what it's trying to do, it is in no way being billed as the default cinnamon file manager. The Linux Mint 14 developers seem hesitant to include it just yet. The only thing being said so far is that it "might" replace nautilus for the next release. It does seem likely that it will eventually become the de-facto file manager, however.

This is, of course, a git release. But it seems like making nemo-git a dependency is hedging a lot of bets. Might be better to keep nautilus as a dep, and add nemo-git as an opt-dep until nemo is fully recognized and has differing features. Anyone can always just edit the PKGBUILD to get rid of the nautilus dep.

Just my two cents, though. Please don't flog me. :)

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-08-23 04:03

@Luminary: Done :)

Luminary commented on 2012-08-22 20:30

Can we replace the nautilus dependency with "nemo-git", since that's Cinnamon's file manager now?

Ner0 commented on 2012-08-21 10:28

It won't start without accountsservice.

Ner0 commented on 2012-07-26 14:22

I can confirm that if use pullrequest https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/pull/851 , pidgin trayicon is fixed
but sometimes i have the gray borders (6px) in right and bottom. Than to fix this i set (line 60):
icon.set_size(width-6, height-6);

Maybe this will help someone

Anonymous comment on 2012-07-08 22:10

pullrequest https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/pull/851 nearly fix pidgin issue, but the problem remains partially. Now it often happens that the bottom is a gray rectangle icon, as shown on the screenshot. It so happens that the icon moves up (not in the middle).

The first patch is not needed anymore.

Also, the settings patch is creating and installing a backup file, so you should disable that.

Kindly tell me, please. Will there be further development of cinnamon? Just a month now, as developers do not make updates. It is also the problem of issues (the battery indicator, sometimes cinnamon restarts itself). Yes, I admit, brought a stable branch, but will further develop? thanx.. (sory for bad english)

I also note the non-existence of muffin-git and cinnamon-git upgrades. I've been bit in the butt a couple times now anyone else made these upgrades and have cinnamon-git stop working?

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-05-11 14:50

@inp3dance: I can't go to https://github.com at all right now, so they're probably down for maintenance :)

On Arch Linux, KDM gets the sessions from /usr/share/apps/kdm/sessions. When github is back up, I'll make an update that symlinks /usr/share/xsessions/cinnamon.desktop to /usr/share/apps/kdm/sessions/cinnamon.desktop.

@linfan: thank you for the comments. You are right again. I my case, I've run gnome-shell for 3 or 4 months in production enviroment. I really don't like it and I don't like the methods we have to tweak. I moved to xfce, fast interface and all gnome 3 apps I need. The better, memory load is arond 500mb when running chrome, gedit, thunderbird and skype at the same time. Enough room to open IE7, which I need to test my web sites, using VirtualBox, even in my small 2gb memory laptop. Anyhow I'll be following gnome deployments and, maybe some day I'll came back.

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-05-10 03:57

@mininessie: That depends on the AUR helper you use. I use yaourt, which can recognize those versioned dependencies correctly.

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-05-09 07:05

I just tried it and it seems to be broken for me too. None of the other settings in dconf work either :(

raqua commented on 2012-05-09 05:26

Ok, you have found it, great. :) But unfortunately, no matter whether I set it to true of false, I still have edge tilling on.

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-05-08 23:03

The key for that is org.cinnamon.muffin.edge-tiling in dconf :)

raqua commented on 2012-05-08 22:49

Well, regarding the dconf, I can not find, where to disable the 'drag up to maximize' nonsense. I had it set before and now itis back again. And I also lost all my keyboard shortcuts settings, which is also annoying. :/

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-05-08 22:33

@raqua: I'm an idiot. I read your post wrong. You did say gconf -> dconf, sorry :)

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-05-08 22:32

@raqua:

1. Actually, it's other other way around: gconf -> dconf :D. I don't think there's a way to migrate the settings. You can try opening "gconf-editor" and "dconf-editor" to copy the settings over. But that's probably more work than changing the settings again.

2. You're pretty lucky to have broken icons. I just get one huge empty block: http://i.imgur.com/gLlcN.png I'm not sure what's wrong :(

raqua commented on 2012-05-08 20:02

This package now works for me, but there are 2 issues I have:
1) I think I read somewhere that configuration switched to dconf from gconf. It seems like the settings have been lost while making that. Is there any way to migrate them? I would prefer to do that instead of creating them again from scratch.

2) System tray acts strange now. After system start I have two icons there - Deluge and Spider Oak. Deluge is somehow half-visibe/broken. If I start Pidgin, I see that tray is resized (by howering cursor over it) but I do not see Pidgin icon, nor can I restore minimized Pidgin by clicking empty space where the icon should be. If I at this point stop Deluge, Pidgin icon reappears and works as expected. Starting Deluge again shows the same behavior for its icon as Pidgin was showing before.

Maybe problem only with clean (new) install?

@chenxiaolong :

After:
$ maffin --replace & cinnamon --replace &
after which, the first problem disappears

2nd this like issue #523 , i have clean install arch with gnome 3.4 + muffin-git + cinnamon-git
When open some window - proble disappears ( problem in width of label ).

width:50px; - not fix issue, it breaks all other labels

i tried do ( https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/issues/523#issuecomment-5540837 ):
- Tried max-width and min-width

but it breaks all other labels too

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-05-07 22:47

@akulikov: I think both problems are in Cinnamon.

1) If you do <Alt>+<F2>+"r" and then run "muffin --replace" in the terminal, you see that there's no problem anymore. If you run "cinnamon --replace", the problem comes back. I think this is an upstream bug.

2) I can't seem to reproduce this. Have you tried removing the menu from the panel and then adding it again?

I've updated muffin-git to use the rat4 branch and removed the stupid patch from this package :) Cinnamon (hopefully) should work again.

MatejSpindler commented on 2012-05-07 08:35

I got cinnamon working with:

- muffin built from branch "mutter_3.4.0" in "rat4/muffin" github repository.
- cinnamon without "0001-Manually-revert-commit-6cd6a4543b83fe9dddca8e827a538.patch" - this patch does silly things :(
- and running glib-compile-schemas usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas after both muffin and cinnamon install

I used manual install so I don't have PKGBUILSD and can't post them.

P.S. some settings in cinnamon-settings don't work because muffin doesn't use dconf anymore.

Anonymous comment on 2012-05-05 15:24

@silviosa: I watched a flick on utube about gnome-shell, and I learnt that the magic about it is the windows key. You earlier told me you need to fast go into various apps. As a matter of fact, I now have gnome-shell running and all apps on desktop. I just click on the app and start whatever program I want. I guess I set up my desktop in fallback mode and told the settings to let nautilus handle the desktop and put icons on the screen to click on, then i disabled fall back, and voilà, a gnome-shell with clickable apps on desktop. I also have clearlooks red exit window theme and gnome 2.18 icon themes, so it is possible to make gnome-shell functional for everyday use. I guess the problem with us often is, we don't wanna learn new stuff, because it steals valuable time. But how ever much we struggle against development and try to conserve everything as it is, we fail. But it took me this long to give up and give gnome-shell a decent spin. And as I said in the beginning, not at all as bad after doing a 10 minute watch on utube.

Maybe remove cinnamon from AUR is to drastic but @linfan is write about everything else. I try kdm as I told. No way. It crashes frequently. So, I stop playing: XFCE and back to productivity.

Please stop that nonsense.

Anonymous comment on 2012-05-05 01:42

I hope I will be proven wrong, who knows, but cinnamon is built on gnome-shell and that in a debian based distro. Archlinux is not a debian based distro, so there will always be some necessary changes needed to adapt it for archlinux... and the whole carousel is spinning endlessly, either gnome does something to make cinnamon unusable or then linuxmint, like we have seen already. Only if gnome will adopt cinnamon and work for it, will I be convinced that it will be something worthwhile.

bjo commented on 2012-05-05 00:22

@linfan: WTH? Except the upgrade from gnome 3.2 to 3.4, I had no issues with cinnamon. Last week, I used gnome-shell with some extensions, it was annoying shit. Last year, I used KDE for some months: Kontact was crashing often, virtuoso took 100% cpu for days (with file indexing disabled), also annoying shit. You're behaving like a little child. "Mehmehmeh, cinnamon doesn't work now out of the box, so delete it from AUR."

jnbek commented on 2012-05-04 23:47

@linfan, your remarks are pretentious!! Really?? Install LinuxMint to avoid the problems? Delete it from AUR?? Really?? GNOME 3 is pig puke and needs to DIE!! Cinnamon is the only alternative to GNOME 3 that doesn't suck.. Perhaps Cinnamon is taking off way faster than the developers expected and they're working to resolve the painful issues that are happening right now. But advocating removal simply because you don't want to invest any effort to solving the problem, is wrong on so many levels.

Anonymous comment on 2012-05-04 03:02

I am now convinced after googling quite a bit, that it is not wise to build cinnamon at all outside of linuxmint. Both archlinux and gnome have their own schedules to follow. To force gnome or any distribution to hold back on their development due to linuxmint to catch up would be really silly. I even advocate that the whole cinnamon project be deleted from AUR as it is very linuxmint centered and has nothing whatsoever to do with any other distro. It was nice as long as it worked, but guys, ubumpoo patches and hack patches, is that really the way to go? If you want cinnamon, why not install linuxmint, where it belongs.

bjo commented on 2012-05-03 20:20

I am now using xfce4. Not as fancy looking as gtk gnome, but fully functional.
@bjo: the AUR cinnamon themes pkgs try to download from github, which does not exist. Ofc, I know you can install them directly in home dir .themes, but why spend hours trying to save cinnamon, by patches and manual labor for hours and not once but almost every day?

Anonymous comment on 2012-05-03 16:11

@linfan: You hit the point! I am a programmer and I need to move quickly between several opened apps: web browser, app editor, ssh console, email reader, db manager, and so. Gnome's tablet like interface does not allow that. Cinnamon, and all gnome-shell-extension from AUR developers, even if they do their best like they are doing, will never be at the same pace of gnome releases. I do not feel myself comfortable in LXDE or XFCE. I think I'll give a chance to KDE, again, after 6 years of gnome ...

Tks guys.

bjo commented on 2012-05-03 13:57

Hahaa, the down slope for gnome marches on fast, now the themes and extension githubs have been disabled by linux mint: https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/issues/668

I am going to do something drastic now, I think. Gnome will have to go, as I already have an android phone and do not need an android clone on my puter. Cinnamon is never going to be of any use, I fear, as the gnome devs are doing their utmost to make gnome into a tabloid screen app. But you never know, maybe some day I will get an IPad clone and then I can wear out my thumbs on gnome. Thanks for the time being and good luck.

Well, if it was so easy as @bjo and @eltincho say, why chenxiaolog and morfeo did not updated their packages yet? I'm wondering when it will be useful running cinnamon with Arch. Cinnamon is committed to Ubuntu packages which are upgraded each 6 months. Arch run faster and Gnome people are running fast also. By now, I'm sorry to say, but i'll quit one of those, Cinnamon or Arch.
Many thanks to chenxialog for the efforts in bringing us this package and to all you guys for your comments.

Anonymous comment on 2012-05-03 04:50

To get correctly installed cinnamon and cinnamon-settings, first you need to install muffin-git and cinnamon from aur/cinnamon (not this version). After that, you need to download the "cinnamon-settings-hack.patch" from this page and apply that in "/usr/lib/cinnamon-settings" with patch command "patch < file.patch".

That is the way that I have cinnamon working in my computer. I'm waiting for the patch or for a new package to get a working version of cinnamon-git.

Anonymous comment on 2012-05-02 23:33

grrr, starting to dislike this now. I was stupid to try this May 2 build, and all is destroyed. Desktop won't load at all. And I really, really dislike gnome fallback.

@bjo: What are you talking about? Did not work at all. What cinnamon-settings.py are you referring to?

bjo commented on 2012-05-02 11:15

The usual cinnamon-package in AUR works with muffin-git, you only have to patch cinnamon-settings.py. So no need to use gnome-shell with gnome-shell-frippery.

I tried ubuntu precise with cinnamon-stable ppa and cinnamon runs smoothly. It seems they run gnome 3.4 with gnome-session 3.2. Maybe you could check what are they doing over there. But I prefer Arch Linux so I'l live with gnome-shell plus gnome-shell-frippery until you can fix cinnamon. Tks for your hard work.

I've manually reverted commit 6cd6a4543b83fe9dddca8e827a538, which is causing the issue. I have no idea whether Cinnamon will run, but at least it compiles :)

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-05-02 03:51

Okay, I found the cause of the bug. Cinnamon was updated to use GSettings/dconf instead of GConf to store muffin's settings (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=663429), but muffin was not updated. Muffin is still using GConf, causing the build to fail.

Anonymous comment on 2012-05-01 23:29

Any way, we should be happy - hehe - linux mint only have gnome 3.32 still. I was lucky to install cinnamon-git before the other days gnome 3.34 updates on arch, so it still works, tho it is slow at upstart.

@jnbek: I agree, the AUR needs a feature to specify when a package doesn't build, but the Arch devs don't like it when the out-of-date button is used for this purpose.

jnbek commented on 2012-04-30 19:35

Well, if the package is broken and doesn't compile, there should be someway to specify this... it's annoying trying to install this when it won't even build..

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-04-30 15:24

Please do not flag out-of-date if the package is simply not building. This is mentioned several times in the Arch Wiki and the mailing lists.

Anyway, I've removed the '0001-Fix-build-with-gnome-bluetooth-3.4.patch' patch because it was merged upstream. The build is still failing because the Cinnamon devs are in the process of merging gnome-shell 3.4 changes.

Tks, chenxialong for the update. Cinnamon works again but there is a minor problem. If you run a yaourt full system update like I did cinnamon compilation fails (sorry, didn't catch the message) because cinnamon start compiling before muffin. I solved it starting update manually, first muffin then cinnamon.

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-04-29 06:38

ok, i did patch the sinnamon-git, but cinnamon-settings still wont run :(

mininessie commented on 2012-04-24 22:13

@bjo is that a patch for the cinnamon-settings if so how would i add that to my cinnamon-git so it patches it

bjo commented on 2012-04-24 17:26

You can use the patch from http://pastebin.com/NHkxYN44 - then it works with gnome3.4

Anonymous comment on 2012-04-24 17:21

Okies! Ty. Tried to downgrade those packages, but seems it is more complicated than that. Now I have manually uninstalled all of cinnamon and purged my puter of everything that is called cinnamon, muffin, themes etc. Hopefully some day it will work. I am thinking about migrating to Linux Mint. This gnome 3 frenzy turns me mad. Fallback mode now until I will find something that is usable.

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-04-24 14:40

@linfan: It's a problem with gnome-settings-daemon. It's no longer providing /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.DateTimeMechanism.service

bjo commented on 2012-04-24 13:27

No, there are some dbus-services missing with gnome 3.4.

Anonymous comment on 2012-04-24 13:22

I tried to downgrade dbus and dbus-core. No change. So I wonder why it says it is python errors if it is just an upgraded dbus?

I finally found the cause of the issues. Cinnamon-settings requires some features that were modified in gnome-settings-daemon 3.4. Ubuntu reverted those commits in their packages, which is why it works in Ubuntu. For now, I'll just include the hack in the PKGBUILD.

bjo commented on 2012-04-24 05:13

cinnamon-settings still does not work without Ner0's patch.

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-04-24 04:40

I've created a proper patch that fixes the build with gnome-bluetooth 3.4. I've filed a bug report to get it merged upstream: https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/issues/636

And cinnamon-settings should not need patches anymore. I've tested every check box and tried changing themes :)

mininessie commented on 2012-04-24 00:12

so this hasn't been updated to work with gnome 3.4?

Anonymous comment on 2012-04-23 18:43

this is just a catastrophe just now. Thank you. Only found some .debs, no tarball. For the moment i will get rid of cinnamon

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-04-23 17:47

Since GNOME 3.4 just landed in the extra repo, I will be fixing the cinnamon-git and muffin-git packages very soon :)

So it will work with gtk+ 3.2*

I just tried compiling again, (thanks for the fix, that took care of that problem!), however I run into another problem, this time in the actual compilation stage:

I do have the file requested, it is located at /usr/lib/gnome-bluetooth/libgnome-bluetooth-applet.so.0 (as a symlink to libgnome-bluetooth-applet.so.0.0.0), which is where it was installed originally.

I have the respective package installed, (I'm assuming gnome-bluetooth). I created a symlink to that in /usr/lib and the problem went away, but I don't know if that's a problem in the source of PKGBUILD.

You need to change those lines in muffin-git:

if $(pkg-config --atleast-version 1.9 cogl-1.0 &>/dev/null); then
_gitroot='https://github.com/rat4/muffin.git'
else
_gitroot='https://github.com/linuxmint/muffin.git'
fi

to:
_gitroot='https://github.com/linuxmint/muffin.git'

and remove that lines there:

if $(pkg-config --atleast-version 1.9 cogl-1.0 &>/dev/null); then
cd "${srcdir}/${_gitname}"
git checkout gtk_3.3
git checkout master
git merge gtk_3.3
fi

It was a workaround which is not needed anymore.

I am getting the following error, when I enabled Testing to try out Gnome 3.4:

The build failed.

The version of gtk3 that is in testing is 3.4, is this possibly a bug? Just wondering, since it seems that even when it comes to Extra, it'll fail. If not, my bad. Thanks!

First of all, please set the locale to C before posting errors, makes it easier to understand (e.g. by calling 'export LC_ALL=C' first or by running makepkg as 'LC_ALL=C makepkg').
To fix the problem, update muffin-git first and then update cinnamon-git. It is because latest cinnamon requires a change in muffin.

Please note that cinnamon depends on python2 not python, which is python3.

allen875 commented on 2012-02-18 09:14

@krzd I'll agree with that, I was just looking into his question. Cinnamon should list somewhere what there dependencies are.

Anonymous comment on 2012-02-18 09:05

How can something which is not needed be a dependency? Sounds odd. Oh and metacity and gnome-panel is not even used by cinnamon.
And adding the whole gnome group (if possible) as a dependency is really crazy. I don't even use the whole gnome group and don't want to.
Even gnome-shell does not depend on gnome-panel, metacity, etc.

allen875 commented on 2012-02-18 08:23

@chenxiaolong, it doesn't say anything about it in the PKGBUILD standards, but it does say the gnome files need to be installed in a specific schema.

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-02-18 07:34

@lenin: Do you know if a group can be added as a dependency? I'm not sure if it can...

lenin commented on 2012-02-18 07:15

@chenxiaolong: Then you should set gnome as one of the dependencies.

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-02-06 17:45

@denvist: Cinnamon is just a shell for the GNOME environment (much like gnome-shell and unity) and therefore, it's implied that the 'gnome' group must be installed (which contains those packages you listed).

denvist commented on 2012-02-06 17:36

Please add missing depencies:
- metacity
- notification-daemon
- gnome-panel
- gnome-settings-daemon

With the latest changes, dbus-python is now a direct dependency (indirect via caribou).

Does anyone know the process to get obsolete packages removed from the AUR?

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-19 04:43

Because cinnamon-settings merged with cinnamon, python2-gconf is now a dependency for cinnamon (or at least needed if you want to run cinnamon-settings), you also need to change the first line of /usr/lib/cinnamon-settings/cinnamon-settings.py to

#!/usr/bin/env python2

otherwise there are a whole host of issues.

Cinnamon-settings, cinnamon-session and cinnamon-applets were merged into cinnamon. So those packages can be removed from deps and deleted, except for cinnamon-applets, since it was not merged completely.

Edit: cinnamon-applets can be deleted, since the only unmerged applet is an obsolete one. Two new were added to cinnamon (not cinnamon-applets), though. You will need to include the python/python2 fix from cinnamon-settings here.

@krzd: I didn't know know that the upstream already had session files...could have saved me some time from writing my own :D I've moved 'gnome-common' to the build dependencies and removed 'telepathy-mission-control' from the dependencies.

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-16 14:06

Wouldn't it be better to create a cinnamon-session-git package (cinnamon-session is available on github, too) instead of adding the session files manually? This would give us the session files plus a session starting script, which might get more useful in the future, if more parts will be created. Also this would be the offical way to do it.

Edit: telepathy-mission-control is not needed anymore and gnome-common is only needed for building, not for running.

Try re/installing librsvg and see if it works

I have installed cinnamon-git today via yaourt. Trying to run cinnamon-settings I get a similar error:

Thank you krzd

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-13 22:35

@Raist That means that your cinnamon installation is outdated. Hope you used the latest version of cinnamon from git. Since cinnamon-settings changes settings of cinnamon and was introduced with no stable release of cinnamon.

Great :) But I think mutter can now be removed from the deps.

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-01-11 21:54

@krzd: Done :) http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=55740

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-11 20:35

Mutter was replaced by muffin, a mutter fork for cinnamon. So dependency needs to be changed and a package for muffin-git needs to be created, otherwise it won't build.

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-01-10 00:45

@krzd: Thanks for the info! Updated :)

You should remove the following lines, since the file was deleted from git and is not needed anymore:
# Missing files
install -m644 js/ui/themesDisplay.js "${pkgdir}/usr/share/cinnamon/js/ui/"

@franzrogar: Are you able to load Gnome Shell from LXDM (when you said GNOME 3, I'm not sure if you meant Gnome Shell or Gnome Fallback)? For the session files, I basically just copied the Gnome Shell files and changed them to load Cinnamon.

If it's an LXDM problem, maybe the git version of LXDM can work? http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=34358

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-06 14:12

@chenxiaolong I've tested with GDM and it loads perfectly. So there's some kind of problem between LXDM and Cinnamon files...

@franzrogar: Could you try with another display manager, like GDM or LightDM? I'll test with LXDM tomorrow.

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-04 09:24

Compiles perfectly.

Launching with LXDE fails to me. After selecting Cinnamon and login, it just keeps going back to LXDM login screen without any visual warning/error at all. So I can't test it. I can launch perfectly GNOME3, LXDE, and others.

Any idea why this may be happening?

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-01-04 06:56

Why was this package flagged out-of-date? :( It builds and runs fine for me...

chenxiaolong commented on 2012-01-03 20:16

@mandog: I'm glad it works for you :)

mandog commented on 2012-01-03 19:44

built flawlessly for me no errors entry in gdm was fine seems quite fast so far

chenxiaolong commented on 2011-12-27 15:57

That's weird. I already have a /usr/lib/libltdl.so file and pacman says that it was created by the libltdl package:

When compiling, I got an error along the lines of "error could not find -lltdl" so I created a symbolic link in /usr/lib from libltdl.so.7 to libltdl.so

chenxiaolong commented on 2011-12-27 04:53

@Aesthetikx: Could you explain more about the libltdl issue? I can't seem to reproduce it (although I have 10 billion packages installed from the repos and the AUR, maybe some package fixed it :D).

Anonymous comment on 2011-12-27 03:32

On a fresh install, I was only able to build after creating a symbolic link for libltdl, although I'm sure you already know that.
Keep up the good work!

You need to install the 'gnome-common' package to compile Cinnamon. I'm not sure why it didn't get installed; it's in the dependencies.

chenxiaolong commented on 2011-12-22 18:18

The bug for the missing files was fixed upstream (except for one file, which is my fault) :) PKGBUILD updated.

chenxiaolong commented on 2011-12-22 18:11

@CaioAionoso, ElVirolo: Yeah, it seems like this commit renamed some files: https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/commit/0751968e9fd6efc7fa1c6c246e3295ffcc704f1d

It fixed now :)

ElVirolo commented on 2011-12-22 14:01

Ok, if one sets the path in the PKGBUILD to `data/theme/player-paused.svg' (do the same with the other lines), it works, at last!

CaioAlonso commented on 2011-12-22 14:01

About the missing player-paused.svg, applying these changes seems to fix the issue here: http://pastebin.com/Wu5AC1Vr

Hmm..is there a problem with the AUR's comment system right now? I got quite a few emails about new comments, but I cannot see them here. For example, I just got 2 emails saying that conan513 posted:

"Unable to load cinnemon" problem with GDM

I've gotten 20 emails from AUR about new comments here, but only 7 of the 18 comments were not written by me...weird.

I did run it with the --replace option, actually. I tried cinnamon under Mint 12 and it works even from within gnome-shell. Thanks a lot for your work anyway!

chenxiaolong commented on 2011-12-21 22:34

You're welcome! Would you mind testing the GDM session that I just added to the package?

Looks like I'll have to compare the PKGBUILD with the Linux Mint DEB's to see why it crashes.

chenxiaolong commented on 2011-12-21 22:09

I've added a gnome-session file and xsession file to the package, so that it can be launched from GDM/KDM/LightDM/etc.

chenxiaolong commented on 2011-12-21 21:57

@remstereo, ElVirolo: How are you running Cinnamon? It is a window manager, so it must be run with "--replace".

Also, I'm not sure you can run Cinnamon from a Gnome(-fallback,-shell) Session. In Gnome, the window manager is launched by gnome-session and if the window manager stops running, gnome-session will try to restart it. Maybe that's why it's crashing...

ElVirolo commented on 2011-12-21 20:45

Ok so now it does start but then gnome-shell crashes immediately and gdm appears.

Also, for anyone wanting to test Cinnamon from an XFCE session, kill the 'xfwm4' process first! After running 'cinnamon --replace' and 'xfwm4 --replace' again, xfwm4 will fail to manage the windows and cause all the application processes to be 'defunct.'

I think the package gnome-common has to be added as a dependence. At least it asks you to install it from the GNOME git or the package manager upon compiling, so it's not a very big problem. The version suplied with Arch works I think.
