    Not unless you want to start creating it yourself.

    Ah, alas I have not the time to undertake such a project, was just curious if anyone had started a similar project. I imagine it's in low demand since cinnamon is a linux mint invention, and most people wanting it would probably just install regular linux mint for that purpose. Still, now there is ubuntu mate, so I can imagine ubuntu-cinnamon becoming an option in the near future, that is, if someone were to undertake that project

    Well so far removing Unity and installing Cinnamon and getting it to look OK hasn't been a big challenge... I will play a bit more and then post some steps progress on how and what I am up too (please note I am just faffing around in VirtualBox so don't expect to much as I don't )

    XFCE in Xubuntu and Cinnamon are not all the different.

    On my hardware, the biggest difference is that Mint's Cinnamon does not exhibit the video tearing I always see in any implementation of XFCE: Mishapen borders when windows are moved, tremendous rippling effect in Firefox with smooth scrolling enabled, etc. Same behavior on Nvidia with either Nouveau or an Nvidia driver as on Intel Haswell. I'm guessing its the window manager in XFCE since this problem only shows up in XFCE on every distribution I've tried.

    Pity. I like XFCE and it allows me to work as I wish, while Cinnamon does not.

    It is my understanding that we have a Ubuntu Mate version because one of the Mate developers wanted to do it. So, does anyone know if any of the Cinnamon developers are up for the challenge? Surely, the desire for a Cinnamon flavour of Ubuntu goes beyond installing a Cinnamon desktop and removing the Gnome desktop.

    Regards.

    I haven't, but have you tried using Openbox, instead? Would that do it? Seems one can replace xfwm with openbox, as outlined in this Ubuntu Thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...highlight=Xfwm
