?Code:(cinnamon:32345): Clutter-CRITICAL **: Unable to initialize Clutter: Unable to find suitable fbconfig for the GLX context: Failed to find any compatible fbconfigs Window manager error: Unable to initialize Clutter.
I guess we do. Gnome starts but without a window manager, meaning that basically you're not able to start any application.
.295 worked for me on all machines. Are you sure that you're using this driver now - including GL libraries?
You can try to deinstall the Nvidia driver completely and start cinnamon with nouveau. That way you will know for sure is the problem you're having is related with nvidia.
Edit: Oh I should point out:
- Yes, the 295 driver is loaded, with all GL libraries as far as I can tell (no errors came up, etc)
- Gnome shell loads just fine
- I'm not sure if uninstalling the NVIDIA driver itself would fix anything.... This certainly does not seem to be a driver issue. Something would come up in Xorg.0.log or dmesg, yeah?
Then log in cinnamon. If only cinnamon doesnt' start but Gnome does, you should get a termimal (most likely unwindowed). In this terminal, type:Code:cp /usr/share/applications/gnome-terminal.desktop ~/.config/autostart echo "X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true" >> ~/.config/autostart/gnome-terminal.desktop
and see which error you get.
- I can log into cinnamon, however, it does not load in its entirety. The panel, window frames, title bar, etc.
- Is it possible to do a cinnamon --replace from Gnome shell? I suppose I could try this in the butchered cinnamon load. I'll give this a try, thank you.
Not to kick up dust in an old thread, but I figured it'd be good to tie up loose ends. So I figured out the issue with the help of another poster! In here: Unable to use cinnamon desktop in opensuse 12.1 - OP mentions that he had to create symlinks for libcinnamon.so. I did this as well and poof, cinnamon now magically loads.
Just wanted to throw that out there in case anyone else got frustrated and punted cinnamon to the side for the time being. I am exceedingly happy to have it back up and running now
Well, I also had some problem with starting the cinnamon in my opensuse 12.1 x86 but I solved it easily. Your problem look something similar to mine. In my case the rpm package "cinnamon" was not installing the the required cinnamon library "libcinnamon.so" in the correct lib directory. So I created sym links in /usr/lib/ or /lib/ . Check yourself if you have the same problem. After installing cinnamon from the repository, in the gnome terminal type "cinnamon" (obviously without quotes) and see if there is any error report in the terminal.
