Thread: Cinnamon constantly crashes on openSUSE Factory

    Exclamation Cinnamon constantly crashes on openSUSE Factory

    I've recently installed Factory, and subsequently installed Cinnamon using the one-click link on the Cinnamon website. The problem that I'm having is that each time I start Cinnamon from the DM, it would load and everything, but after about a minute or so, it would crash. A black screen appears with the message,
    Oh no! Something has gone wrong. A Problem has occurred and the system can't recover. Please log out and try again.
    However, if I were to run the command "cinnamon --replace" in a terminal, the desktop loads and doesn't crash.

    This is the printout from the terminal while Cinnamon is running:
    Window manager warning: 0 stored in GConf key /desktop/gnome/peripherals/mouse/cursor_size is out of range 1 to 128

    Can anyone help with this issue?

    One-click install for Cinnamon?! Amazing what they figure out nowadays! It basically didn't work on any machine here (with either nvidia or ati proprietary driver) until I compiled it myself ... although your errors don't look like the ones I got (Clutter just refused to initialize). It is supposed to work with the open source drivers though (it did indeed work with nouveau).
