    14.04 and cinnamon

    No idea where else to ask this was using cinnamon in 14.04 beta until that jan 15 group of updates and it took it out. Anyone else seen this?

    Re: 14.04 and cinnamon

    Now here is a strange thing. When I search for Cinnamon in the Trusty software centre I get a result but when I click More Info I get a Not Found message. Perhaps I do not have the necessary repository enabled? Only I do - Main, Universe, Restricted and Multiverse. Could it be that Cinnamon has been temporarily removed from the repository? May be Cinnamon needs some maintaining to keep it up to date with the changes happening in Trusty.

    Regards.

    Well the ppa I have been using is http://ppa.launchpad.net/gwendal-leb...-stable/ubuntu set to saucy since that is the latest one they are showing support to.

    Checking packages.ubuntu.com, it seems cinnamon is only available in the saucy repositories.

    What kernel do you now have. Do you know if one of the updates upgraded to kernel 3.13.0-3.

    Re: 14.04 and cinnamon

    My best guess is that the upgrade to 'gnome-shell-common 3.10' broke cinnamon:

    gnome-shell (3.10.3-0ubuntu1) trusty; urgency=medium

    * New upstream release (LP: #1269916)
    * Merge from Debian, remaining changes:
    - debian/control.in:
    + Recommend gdm instead of gdm3
    + Add Recommends on network-manager since this
    is required for network panel to work. (LP: #1225787)
    - debian/patches/revert-notification-settings-link.patch:
    + Don't link to Notification Settings since that's only available
    with gnome-control-center >= 3.8.
    - debian/patches/40_change-pam-name-to-match-gdm.patch:
    + Disabled not needed on Ubuntu
    - debian/patches/revert-disable-periodic-gc.patch:
    + This is safe to re-enable with mozjs17
    - debian/patches/ubuntu-lightdm-user-switching.patch:
    + Allow user switching when using LightDM.
    Rebased for 3.10 Usermenu changes (thanks Parin)
    - debian/patches/ubuntu_lock_on_suspend.patch
    + Respect Ubuntu's lock-on-suspend setting.
    Rebased for 3.10 Usermenu changes (thanks Parin)
    - source_gnome_shell.py: Now we have upstart user sessions most
    logging goes into the gnome-session.log, so add this to the
    apport hook.
    * debian/patches:
    - revert_new_bluetooth.patch: revert changes requiring Bluez5
    - revert_new_brightness_widget.patch: In its current
    form this requires gnome-settings-daemon 3.10. If trusty ends up
    on g-s-d 3.8, then this should be backported to the old API
    - revert-shelldbus-export-timestamps.patch: Revert
    api change to fix keyboard shortcuts, this can be dropped when
    g-s-d gets updated to 3.10

    But that's only a guess
