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.

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

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!

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.
