As the title says, I'm running Ubuntu 13.10 as a guest on an ESX server. I tried installing Cinnamon, but I'm getting the "Running in software rendering mode" message.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Jason

Pretty sure Cinnamon requires accelerated graphics. Is that available in the virtual session?

The Linux Mint forums might have something to say about that.

Yeah, I think I saw mention of that, and I don't think it's available in an ESX environment. I removed it and went with Gnome Fallback instead.

Thanks anyway.
