    Has anyone come across this yet? Is there a fix that exists? Just curious as I would definitely prefer being able to get into tweaking cinnamon

    @op-
    what is version of openSUSE ?
    What is version of GNOME ?
    Did you "log out" from GNOME shell and login into Cinnamon desktop/session from GDM ?
    If you are using 12.3 and if were you i would wait for Cinnamon to appear in X11 repo. I hope it arrives soon
    GNOME Version 3.20.2

    Ahh, apologies, I didn't realize there were code tags. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Like the output I provided suggests, the packages were installed from home:cyberorg:cinnamon repo. I know it's unofficial (since I didn't see any 'official' support for 12.3) but I thought someone else might have stumbled across this already. I didn't think I would be the only OpenSuSE user that prefers cinnamon over other offerings. I moved to cinnamon after Gnome 3 came out. At first it wasn't so bad- but over time the gnome folks started to make decisions that didn't seem too entertaining to the palate. I think the most recent decision to take out split view from Nautilus was the last straw.

    OpenSuSE 12.3
    Stock version of gnome from install + update repos
    Yes, I did logout in that manner (I've been using cinnamon for a while now and did reboot to use a newer kernel).

    @OP

    i could reproduce your error . Guess you did some ground work of fixing some depencies like python-lxml and python-imaging before getting stuck here.

    Code:

    cinnamon@linux-8zs1:~> cinnamon-settings 
    No module named lxml.etree

    Welp, it seems there was a new build in the repo. All is working fine now, that and the 1.8.x series of cinnamon is completely awesome!
