Install Cinnamon 1.6 on Ubuntu 12.04/11.10 or Linux Mint 12

By Umair Saturday, September 22, 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.
