Re: Cinnamon On Crunchbang

sorry, but: why should one install cinnamon on an openbox conceived environment?
is cinnamon that lightweight nowadays?
why not installing KDE upon #! then?


We are a nice, friendly community here and I hope we stay that way.

Re: Cinnamon On Crunchbang

AFAIK, cinnamon is not available in Debian Stable; trying to install it on Statler (I'm assuming Statler because this thread is in the Help & Support (Stable) area) is likely to lead to "dependency hell" as you've experienced first-hand.

If your heart is really set on trying Cinnamon with CrunchBang, you might want to move to Waldorf, which is built on Debian Testing; however, since Cinnamon isn't in the Debian Testing repo either, you'll probably encounter dependency hell there as well.


I'm a moderator here.  How are we doing?  Feedback is encouraged.

I actually installed it on a Debian Testing machine without problems:
- go here http://sourceforge.net/projects/cinnamo … .5.2/debs/ for i386 or here http://sourceforge.net/projects/cinnamo … .5.2/debs/ for amd64
- download all the .deb files (libmuffin-dev is not mandatory)
- install them ( dpkg -i *.deb to install them all)
- run apt-get install -f to install all the missing dependencies

Ps. be aware that this process will install almost all gnome 3 components (without the shell) and installing it on Waldorf does not make that sense.

Pps. Cinnamon is also available on mentors (http://mentors.debian.net/package/cinnamon) if you want to package it and will be soon available in Sid (actually Muffin, the Cinnamon Window manager, already is)

Re: Cinnamon On Crunchbang

Since LMDE is based on testing,may be you can add LMDE repos in sources list-if you use waldorf- and install it from there,there is risk for dependency hell.


Keep digging.

Re: Cinnamon On Crunchbang

I want to install cinnamon just for the sake of science.

Re: Cinnamon On Crunchbang

Basically you'll never get it to run in Squeeze/Staler because it has Gnome 3 dependencies and they don't exist in the squeeze repos.

Your simplest option would be to install Waldorf and add it from the Mint LMDE repos as suggested by others smile There are a few posts around from people who've given it a go but something like this would probably work http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php? … 69#p428725

Good luck it and let us know how the experiment goes smile

Re: Cinnamon On Crunchbang

you can always push the envelope with #! and track SID instead of stable.  There are quite a few folks (and faqs) that do it here.

Re: Cinnamon On Crunchbang

Don't be dissuaded by naysayers, you should do anything you want in the name of science.  But of course, consider the consequences.

Testing/Waldorf aren't particularly scary once you get used to them.  Just make sure you have apt-listbugs package installed.  It will help prevent you from installing critical bugs that haven't been fixed yet.

-edit- Thanks m5 for clarifying that!

Re: Cinnamon On Crunchbang

^ indeed, smile

sudo apt-get apt-listbugs

it will warn you about unfixed bugs during the package installation/upgrade .

Re: Cinnamon On Crunchbang

Just a FYI, it might build in testing but doesn't work in Sid. Tried it a few days ago with Mint repos, no dice.
