How to customize Cinnamon on Fedora 16 and Linux Mint 12

Jan 09, 2012, 19:03 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to finid for this link. ]

"Cinnamon is a fork of GNOME 3 Shell by the developers of Linux Mint. If this is news to you, you might want to read "What does Cinnamon bring to the desktop?". Installable packages are already available for a few distributions. However, I have only been able to install and use it on Linux Mint 12 and Fedora 16 (see how to install Cinnamon on Fedora 16).

"Though I have been able to install it on Ubuntu 11.10, every attempt to use it has failed. As soon as I figure out why it does not seem to be usable on Ubuntu 11.10, I will post it. Cinnamon's menu and panel have a few aspects that can be configured by right-clicking, but a few others need to be configured with the gconf-editor. This article shows how to install and use gconf-editor on Fedora 16 and Linux Mint 12 to modify them."
