Install Cinnamon on Ubuntu/Linux mint

By Umair Sunday, February 12, 2012

Cinnamon, the GNOME2-like GNOME Shell fork is now available in a PPA so Ubuntu users can easily get updates without having to manually download the .deb files.

Besides Cinnamon itself, the PPA also provides Cinnamon Settings, a new GUI tool that lets you configure Cinnamon: enable/disable panel autohide, tweak the date on the panel, enable/disable overview icon or hot corner, enable/disable themes and extensions.

Using the latest Cinnamon via GIT, you can also move the panel to the top (this feature should be available in the next Cinnamon release) and tweak some other settings.


Install Cinnamon in Ubuntu via PPA
To install Cinnamon Desktop and Cinnamon Settings under Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot or 12.04 Precise Pangolin via PPA, use the commands below:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:merlwiz79/cinnamon-ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cinnamon

Once installed, log out and select "Cinnamon" from the login screen session list.

The PPA also comes with a weather extension - to install it, use the commands below:
sudo apt-get install cinnamon-extension-weather

There are also some of the official GNOME Shell extensions in the PPA, tweaked to work with Cinnamon:
sudo apt-get install cinnamon-extensions-auto-move-windows cinnamon-extensions-dock cinnamon-extensions-places-menu cinnamon-extensions-windows-navigator

There's also a new Cinnamon Themes repository available on GitHub, but package isn't yet available in the PPA. Until it's uploaded, you can use the commands below to install the 8 beautiful themes you've seen in our video:
sudo apt-get install git-core cd && git clone
cd cinnamon-themes && ./test
