    Default Unable to use cinnamon desktop in opensuse 12.1

    Hi Guys,
    Today I installed Cinnamon 1.4 desktop from opensuse cinnamon repository. But I am unable to use it. When I login by enabling cinnamon as my desktop, I just find only icons on the desktop and nothing more. No Application bar or panel (or what ever it is called). Also application windows does not have the title bar (The upper bar that contains title and minimize,maximize and close buttons). Pressing Alt + F2 does nothing except Alt + Ctl + F1 to F7 that I use to restart the system because there is no menu at all.

    But when I logon using Gnome Shell every thing works fine.

    Any Idea?

    Problem Solved.....

    While running Gnome I tried to execute "cinnamon" in terminal, It reported that libcinnamon.so is missing but was only present in /usr/lib/cinnamon/ .
    So, I created two sym links of libcinnamon.so in /usr/lib/ and another in /lib
