How do you install Cinnamon on Crunchbang?
I downloaded the .deb but it says dependencies not met and I looked for and downloaded those tried to install the .debs of thoes but they said the same thing.
is there a way I can add ppa to 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.
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.
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.
I want to install cinnamon just for the sake of science.
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.
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!

sudo apt-get apt-listbugs
it will warn you about unfixed bugs during the package installation/upgrade .
