    cinnamon not working mint 13

    hi. i just made a live usb of linux mint 13 cinnamon to install to a partition. it booted fine and the live session had an error of x server not starting so after i clicked ok, it went to gnome fallback or something. it showed me desktop and everything. i installed it anyway assuming it would do this again when i rebooted the system and used it after install from usb. well it didn't. it just drops me to the black screen to type stuff. i am not good with this. just wondering also why i can't even at least use the gnome fallback as it worked on the live media.

    cinnamon also seemed to not work with the new snow linux i downloaded as well but it did the same thing to let me use gnome fallback.

    Cinnamon is still pretty early in development. Maybe try LXDE or XFCE?

    Re: cinnamon not working mint 13

    Straight from Linux mint:

    Cinnamon is built on Clutter and Gnome 3. It's a modern-looking environment with a traditional and familiar desktop. It features compositing, animations and some unique innovations but it relies on 3D acceleration, lacks some of the features found in Gnome 2 and isn't yet compatible with every graphics card available on the market.
    Cons:

    Cinnamon requires 3D acceleration and might not work well for you, depending on your graphics card and/or drivers.
    Cinnamon is brand new and unfortunately not yet as stable as more mature and established desktops such as MATE, KDE or Xfce.
    Cinnamon relies on Gnome 3 and Clutter, which are also both brand new and going through rapid transformations.
